The Marden Fruit Show Society (MFSS) is a Registered Charity run by a voluntary committee who represent many different facets of the fruit industry. The aim of the Society is to promote the better growing, grading and marketing of fruit.
The Society organises the National Fruit Show, which acts as a meeting place for the industry. The centrepiece of the show, held each October, is the largest competitive display of commercially grown top and soft fruit staged in the UK.
The After-Show event takes the competition fruit “on the road” as part of the Society’s aims to educate the public about British Fruit. In previous years the show fruit has been displayed and sold at RHS Wisley, Ampleforth Abbey, Chatsworth House and Lakeside Shopping Centre. For 2011 the show fruit will be exhibited at Countryside Live in Harrogate, Yorkshire on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd October.
