Applications for traders close on Jan 26th. Demand for places has been high.  But if you are a producer and wish to register interest for future festivals, please email us with the below information to

• Company Name

(Name, Email, Phone, Full Address including postcode)

• Details of Products
(Description, provenance of ingredients, USPs etc.) and images of your products, your gazebo or catering unit

Please put BAFF and your trading name in the email subject.

The festival is carefully programmed and we are always heavily oversubscribed, so please give as much detail as possible.

We focus on producers from the North East, Cumbria and Yorkshire, but will consider traders from outside of these areas if their products are particularly unique, and we refresh about one third of the market offer each year to ensure we have something new for our visitors.
