Now in its fifth year, local food, drink and artisan craft festival, Taste North, will welcome foodies and families to venue, John O'Groats by Together Travel, on Sunday 6th October 2019 for a day of epicurean experiences and family fun.
Throughout the day, chef demonstrations, cocktail masterclasses and workshops will delight visitors.

The Exhibitor's Market will offer everyone the opportunity to sample food from local eateries and producers, taste local tipples and see an array of artisan crafts from Caithness & Sutherland. The cream of local food and drink businesses populate the Exhibitors Market and there are a number of artisan exhibitors from further afield, including Skye and Orkney.
For families, there will be plenty of children’s entertainment and various opportunities for them to get their hands sticky and learn where their food comes from.

This year the competition offers talented local bakers the chance to take part and win exceptional prizes across two categories; the Open category, supported by Developing the Young Workforce and the Youth category, supported by Mackays Hotel, Wick.
