Less than a week out from Fairgrounds Festival in the South Coast NSW town of Berry and the promoters have unveiled an impressive list of food and drink on offer for the day. Come Saturday 5th December, that impressive line-up of live music which includes C.W Stoneking, Meg Mac, and Father John Misty, will be in some pretty great company as food and drink vendors from all over the state come together to set the scene.
The organisers certainly haven’t missed the memo that Australians are demanding better quality food and beverage at music festivals, so they’ve curated a list of smokey, sweet, and fresh eats from the likes of celebrated Sydney pizza truck Happy As Larry, BBQ kings Bovine & Swine Barbecue Co., local dessert innovators Treat Factory, Beer champs Young Henrys, and more.
A Fairgrounds Garden Bar will be set up on-site for those seeking smaller treats, drawing in various producers in the region to provide gourmet cheese plates, Kangaroo Valley olives, fresh Rock Oysters (from An Australian Affair Oyster Bar) and more. This set-up will be nearby the Fairgrounds’ Village Markets which will be offering the best in South Coast snacking from Beef Jerky to fresh Donuts and Homespun Cakes.
Spread across the site will be a line-up of boutique food and drink vendors. As mentioned, Sydney’s Happy As Larry truck will be parking up to pump out their acclaimed wood-fired Pizzas, while Bovine & Swine Barbecue Co. take care of the American-style Smoked Pork and Beef Brisket. Mama Linh’s Vietnamese Street Food will have a stall serving up signatures like Bahn-Mi and Noodle Salads; The Crepe & Coffee Co will have a list of sweet and savoury treats; local sugar-hit purveyors Creamly will be packing their signature Ice Creams and Sorbets – including a flavour exclusively created for the festival: Caramel Popcorn & Strawberry Basil – with vegas options also on the menu; and the long-established, locally loved Treat Factory will be showcasing their family recipes of raspberry jellies, goji berries in chocolate, rosy apples, speckles, all-day gobstoppers, and choc-coated strawberries.
On the drinks side of things, Allpress Coffee Caravan will be on-hand with their clean, sweet flavours, Silos Estate will be supplying the local wines, Young Henrys will be popping up with all their signatures plus the great Noble Cut Gin, and That Vintage Caravan will be stocked full of Mumm Champagne.
For it’s first year, the team behind Fairgrounds are certainly out to provide punters with the best experience possible, not just resting on the fact that they have managed to pull together a great live music line-up. Come December 5th, there’s no doubt that those heading to the festival will have more than enough to keep them satisfied throughout the day.
