IF you enjoy cooking and eating the finest fresh local produce or you're a collector of beautiful hand-made local craft, then Atlantic Village at Bideford has a treat in store for you this August Bank Holiday weekend.

Centre Manager Jane Mcleod ssaid: "Following the success of our previous food fairs we are pleased to announce that not only will the hugely popular event be running again, but it has now expanded into a craft fair as well.

"Our celebration of the very best regional and seasonal food has always attracted a significant number of shoppers to Atlantic Village and created a great atmosphere in the mall, so the addition of the craft fair celebrating our regional craft produce will complement and enhance an already popular event."

On Saturday, Sunday and Monday (August 28-30) the mall will be filled with stalls offering the finest regionally produced crafts and foods.

Produce will include quality preserves jams and marmalades to chutneys and pickles, fresh hand-made organic breads, real farmhouse pies and pasties, mouth watering soft fruits and ranges of specialist cheeses, nuts, olives and vegetables,

If that's not enough to whet your appetite, there will also be pancakes, fudge, chocolate, or for a lighter option a nice sorbet or yoghurt.

There will also be a range of gluten-free cakes so there are scrumptious choices for everyone.

From wood to glass, pottery and leather, cards, pictures, jewellery, photographs, cross stitch to knitted goods, quilts and sugar icing, all that's best in regional crafts will be on offer.

Craft supplies will be available, too.
