Stone Town Centre

The Food and Drink Capital of Staffordshire

The traditional and bustling Market town of Stone is situated off the A34 in Staffordshire, just 8 miles from Stafford. Stone is steeped in a long and colourful history as a canal town, situated midway along the Trent and Mersey Canal. 

On the first Saturday of every month, the popular Farmers' Market visits the town, attracting many visitors looking for speciality produce. There is a Craft and Collectables Market on every Third Saturday and other themed markets appear during the year.  The town Markets are also a regular feature in the High Street - visiting Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

Stone is known as The Food and Drink Capital for a good reason, as the diverse choice of cuisine is excellent - offering a wide range of choice, from traditional home cooked food through to Indian, Thai, Chinese, Italian and fine specialist dishes.

Adding to the vibrancy of Stone - various events take place throughout the year, including the Stone Festival held annually in June and the highly successful Food and Drink Festival which takes place in October.

The Stone Food and Drink Festival brings together the very best in local produce and cooking talent to delight visitors from far and wide.  Now a real red letter day in the 'foodie' calendar the festival attracts in excess of 20,000 visitors to the charming North Staffordshire market town with a packed week-long schedule of food and drink events hosted by local pubs and businesses in addition to the 'main event' on the town's Westbridge Park on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  For more information please visit the Stone Food and Drink Festival  website
