North Devon Foodfest
Barnstaple Pannier Market
North Devon Foodfest showcases the finest local produce from across North Devon and Exmoor and never fails to deliver a real treat for local foodies!
This event takes place at the historic Barnstaple Pannier Market with a range of food stands selling everything from cheese, artisan bread, ciders and ales to local meats, fresh produce, fish and much, much more all complemented by the chef demo stage, free tastings and live music throughout the day.
We are delighted to welcome back celebrity chef Michael Caines MBE for the third year running. Michael will be cooking on the chef demo stage which this year will be located in the Queens Theatre, access to which can be made directly from the Pannier Market. He will be joined by a number of other top local chefs throughout the day and will also present the trophies to this year’s winners of the North Devon Food & Drink Awards.
Now in its sixth year, this year’s event is due to be the biggest and best so far!
New for 2013
