Stawberry Fayre, Combe Martin - 5th June 2011

Published: Saturday 8th Jan 2011

The traditional start to the strawberry season is early June. Combe  Martin was, at one time, a large producer of strawberries. Grown and  packed for resale, the strawberries were sold all over Devon and further  afield.    The traditional of holding a Strawberry Fayre on the first Sunday  in June still exists and Cross Street is closed to trafic while dozens  of colourful stalls are erercted to display and sell all types of home  made food and local crafts and of course, large helpings of Combe Martin  Strawberries and cream with many a punnet taken home for Sunday tea.
