Foodfest 2014 has been hailed as the best ever by exhibitors and visitors as they turned up in numbers to the annual celebration of North Devon’s finest food on Sunday 19th October.
Foodfest featured over 100 local food and drink exhibitors, six top chefs, numerous tastings including chocolate, breads, local fish dishes, a wide variety of street food, and plenty of homemade cakes and bakes.
Michael Caines MBE of Gidleigh Park said: “I love attending North Devon Foodfest. There’s a real buzz in the air and you can feel how it’s become a real event for locals and tourists alike. I’m passionate about celebrating local food and North Devon Foodfest delivers this in bucket loads, championing the fascinating and diverse range of top food producers and retailers in the area.”
With more exhibitors showcasing their products than ever before, early calculations suggest the event was another huge success with the High Street also full of shoppers.
