Pop Up Gatherings - Street Food Producers Tour

A Food and Drink project Cornwall, United Kingdom

PopUpGatherings.co.uk have been evolving since 2009 and now we are looking to do a summer tour working with other street food producers!

Pop Up Gatherings

Starts Easter 2016 - 25th-28th March - Falmouth

all rewards will be issued between 14th February and 24th March 2016

Some rewards are valid for 2016, subject to availability, ie Fal Oysters will be substituted for Porthilly Rock Oysters April-September etc


The video shows how we gather wild Fal Oysters, the photos and text from previous gatherings, but we hope you can see what our passions are and hope you can see what we hope to achieve through all our pop ups, starting with Easter 2016 and going all the way through the summer...

In 2016 we will be working with our friends and collegues who produce their own food or drink and have their own little street food pop up... 

We have approached the organisers of the British Street Food Awards to see if our 7th gathering could play a part in Cornwall heats for the start of the search for this years best of the best... and we hope to be nominated for BBC Food & Farming Awards too...


With the aim of celebrating the end of the native oyster season, the last weekend in March (and the beginning of the Easter holidays!) Falmouth plays host to the 7th Fal Oyster Gathering. After a hard 6 months of fishing for oysters on the water of the Carrick Roads, the fisherman prepare to hang up their oilskins for the summer, but not before a good old knees-up!

The Fal Oyster Gathering is a fantastic opportunity to delight in the freshest native Fal Oysters....and don't panic! If oysters don't happen to whet your apatite, this festival has a veritable feast of local Cornish produce on offer that will be sure to hit the spot!

Fal Oyster Gathering

As well as an 'au naturel' Fal Oyster Bar, the gathering will feature oysters in all guises to tempt the the taste buds of the visitors. If the thought of a raw oyster sends shivers down your spine, then perhaps you will be tempted by oyster & pork stuffing on bruschetta? Or a tempura oyster with wasabi mayo, that turns the oyster into an almost fish & chip shop affair. Proof that a cooked oyster has to be tried.

Both local and national chefs will be working their magic in the kitchen to bring you a menu of the best seasonal produce that Cornwall has to offer.

For gathering organiser, local oyster fisherman and merchant Christopher Ranger, it's all about the 'Terroir'. " You get a real sense of place when you eat these Fal Oysters. They have played a huge part in the history of the Carrick Roads, for them to still be fished under sail and in a conservation area makes them like no other oyster." A reason why the Fal Oyster has been given it's own Protected Designation of Origin along with only 3 other foods in Cornwall, The Cornish Pasty, Cornish Clotted Cream, & Cornish Sardines.

So pop to the bar and drink up the fantastic atmosphere that the Fal Oyster Gathering has to offer......
