New for 2018 – Taste of Spring
On Sunday 22nd April, shoppers at the Taste of Spring food festival in Market Place were thrilled by the variety and quality of the eats and drinks on offer – and went home with bags full of goodies. The festival ran from 10.30am until 4.30pm.
Business was brisk as specialist traders provided visitors with the delights of independently-produced food and drink.
Picnic-style lunches were the order of the day as families made the most of the warmer weather.
The event was intended to whet people’s appetites ahead of the town’s main food fair in August when more than 120 stalls will offer tastes and treats from this country and from around the world. An opportunity for shoppers to taste and take home produce that isn’t generally available in everyday shops.
