Allergy and Free From Show 2014

Today was the first day of the Free From fair at the grand hall Olympia. I took the train from Surrey and arrived not long after the show opened. The venue this year is lighter and much bigger than last year, making it a much nicer experience.

I would still suggest arriving early so you get the benefit of plenty of samples and time to talk to stall holders. The Free From section are all together making it easier to locate your favourite products. It is definitely worth bringing a backpack or trolley to take home all your goodies. Plastic bags soon get very heavy. Also something I forgot! a cool box for some of the fresh produce like Pudology puds, lots of pizza’s pies, sausages etc. Being such a hot weekend warm sausages are no fun! I didn’t risk taking any home.

Do support these small businesses as without our support we will just be left with the huge companies producing often poorer quality products.

My must visits are –

 Isabel’s , free from products including Dough ball mix made from cassava flour, Pizza mix, batter mix etc

nâkd bars made using cashews and dates, some good offers at the show

There are many different exhibitors at the Allergy and Free From Fair I’m sure you will search out more gems!

 

I was able to meet up with fellow Free From Bloggers which made my trip even more worth while, it’s always good to put a face to a Twitter name.

Have a great time

Enjoy!
