Plenty of tasty treats on the go during town’s street food expo.

BARNSTAPLE is hosting a food festival with a difference next month.

The town’s pannier market will be serving up tasty treats on the go during the ‘strEAT Food Barnstaple’ event on Sunday, August 25.

The festival will feature more than a dozen different mobile food vendors selling everything from classic burgers, hot dogs and hog roasts to Mexican, barbecue, Caribbean and Indian food.

Those with a sweet tooth will be catered for too, with ice cream and milkshakes on offer.

“There’s so many brilliant local producers out and about around North Devon at any one time, it just seemed logical to bring them all together,” he said.

“We want strEAT to have a real festival vibe. We often hear there isn’t much to do in Barnstaple, so we wanted to provide an event that everyone could come and enjoy, from families who want something fun to do, people who want to try some different food or just anyone looking to have a good time.”

The event will take place in the pannier market from 12pm – 10pm.
