Foodies will have the chance to discover local culinary flavours and treasures at a new market - and all for a good cause.

Mapperton House and Gardens, near Beaminster, is to host its first Taste of West Dorset market at its grounds. 

The event will support Beaminster’s Prout Bridge Project.

The market has been described as a 'celebration of local flavours', where the region’s 'finest food and drink artisans come together to showcase their passion for quality and authenticity.'

From farm-fresh produce to artisanal cheeses, chocolate, breads and local wines, beers and ciders, it promises something for everyone. 

The market will take place on Saturday, May 11, and Sunday, May 12, from 10am to 4pm each day and admission is from £5 per person.
