BARNSTAPLE Pannier Market is set to play host to a feast of local foods at a special event taking place later this month.
Organisers of the second annual North Devon FoodFest on Sunday, October 18 say food fans are in for a bigger and better treat this year.
Helen Symons, business engagement manager for North Devon+, said: "Visitors to the event can expect a veritable feast of the finest food and drink to choose from.
"Forget your weekly supermarket shop and come to the market and experience what our local producers have to offer in a relaxed and informal setting.
"The FoodFest will give people an opportunity to shop imaginatively and break out of their normal weekly shop to explore a whole new way of shopping.
"Buying locally is a great way to support our local economy, build relationships with local producers and enjoy the benefits and pleasures of eating quality, fresh, seasonal and locally distinctive food and drink."
