Seventh annual celebration of local food to return to Barnstaple this autumn.
THE seventh annual North Devon Foodfest will take place on Sunday, October 19, organiser North Devon+ has announced.
The event at Barnstaple Pannier Market will feature more than 80 local food and drink exhibitors, tastings and chef demonstrations, including the return of Michelin-starred chef Michael Caines.
The annual celebration of North Devon’s finest food has grown since it was launched in 2008 – last year the event attracted a record-breaking 14,000 visitors.
Kristy Webbe, from North Devon+, said: “Foodfest has generated a significant amount of business, providing a huge boost to the town’s retailers and the local economy as a whole.
“As the biggest food event in the area, demand for exhibition space is high and stands get booked quickly – we’d like to ask exhibitors old and new to apply for their space now, to ensure they don’t miss out.”
