Halloween Food Festivities at The Crusoe

Head down to The Crusoe at the Lower Largo on 31st October for a spooky food festival.

This year on Halloween, The Crusoe is hosting a Spooktacular autumn food festival with food stalls, competitions and activities for kids, a bustling outdoor market and The Crusoe Kitchen will be creating spooky themed hot food and baking delights for everyone. Make this Halloween one of the most memorable with a trip to The Crusoe for a beautiful, autumnal event.

Based near Fife, the Crusoe is located on the waters looking over the impressive Firth of Forth. The outdoor space by the Crusoe will be turned into a market for local food and drink producers to set up stalls for people to peruse. The trade stalls will open from 11am – 4pm so locals and visitors alike can see Scottish producers at their best.

Aeble Cider, Scotland’s first dedicated cider shop opened by Grant and Jaye Hutchinson in Anstruther, will be there alongside Seaweed N Stuff, which was created by Julie Campbell. You will find her relishes, chutneys and pickles are made with locally foraged seaweed and sea vegetables from around the Fife coast. Barnett’s Bakery will be there with an assortment of sweet and savoury baked goods, as well as free range duck and hens’ eggs from the family farm, Blythes of Fife. Pittenweem Preserves is run by Fiona and Michael Audsley who have fruit vinegars and jams available from their stall, and Kimchi will also make an appearance by Angrykulture Ferments who handmake it in the East Neuk of Fife. Finally, the Largo Estate, where the market is, will offer a selection of winter squashes and pumpkins for cooking and carving.

For those with children, there will be lots of fun activities for them to enjoy on a crisp, autumn day. A Halloween tent will be available in the evening between 6-8pm for themed interactive games, a spot of trick or treating as well as a fancy dress competition. During the day, The Crusoe will hold a pumpkin carving competition for kids. This competition is fun as it is in partnership with Largo Estate and the winner will get a free dinner at The Crusoe.

There will be live music during the day for people to enjoy as they peruse the best of Scottish food stalls: the talented Nick Mercer JR will be performing. Mercer was a former front man of the band Sergeant who supported the likes of Oasis and The Fratellis during their UK tours.

The Crusoe re-opened this summer as restrictions eased and was able to soak in the benefits of the warm Scottish summer we enjoyed. The restaurant is run by husband and wife Graham and Rachel Bucknall and the TBC Pub Company which also operates The Ship Inn – another iconic venue along the Firth of Forth Coast. They offer a variety of delicious dishes, including the seabass, schnitzel and burgers for those who fancy a light meal or a delectable 3 – course dinner.

Check out the autumnal food event at The Crusoe on Halloween for a treat to beat. The event is free to attend so bring your taste buds for a day filled with extra special autumn delights.
