Alnwick Food Festival makes a welcome return…

Market Place Europe, which manages the town’s twice-weekly market, is staging the event from tomorrow, Friday July 29 to Sunday July 31.

Alex Pidgen of Market Place, said: “Market Place is delighted to be bringing the food and drink festival to Alnwick.

“The atmosphere promises to be fantastic with so many visitors exploring and enjoying all the great flavours on offer and the wonderful town of Alnwick.”

Local and international traders will be serving up a range of treats and artisan crafts.

Greek gyros, mouth-watering salt and pepper chicken, coconut macaroons and French crepes are just some of the tasty delights which will be available along with crafts such as handcrafted Thuya Wood, handmade scented candles, jewellery from Afghanistan and of course a fantastic range of products from local traders.

Gilchrist’s of Alnwick will be providing a bar.

Food and drink traders will be located mainly in Market Place, with craft traders and some fresh food stallholders on Bondgate within.

Market Place took over management of the market last July and it is operated under contract from Northumberland Estates.

The food festival will be on from 10am to 7pm on July Friday 29th and Saturday 30th and from 10am to 6pm on July 31st.
