Wells Food Festival returns on Sunday, 13 October to celebrate once again Somerset’s rich and diverse food and drink.

Almost 200 local traders will be showcasing and selling artisan food and drinks, street food and homewares in the Market Place and Town Hall, on Palace Green, along the moat and in the recreation ground.

Also included will be a selection of South West artisan food and drink producers from beyond Somerset.

English wines will be featured again this year, with the opportunity to talk to the vineyard owners and taste their wines.

The Children’s Zone will have some interactive fun and some kiddie-sized street food. Young visitors will also enjoy the Fun Kitchen cookery workshops and the Children’s Trail.

Food for Thought will also feature again, with a dedicated area highlighting current, food related, social issues.

The festival is free to enter and family friendly.
