Thank you to all our traders, visitors and volunteers who, despite the wet and windy weather, came along to enjoy the sixth Wells Food Festival.

The Festival was a celebration of Somerset’s wonderful local produce, with over 175 stalls showcasing the area’s best artisan food and drink producers.

Plus the Discovery Zone featured demonstrations about the food we eat and its impact on farming practices, the landscape and the environment.

New for this year was the Farm Yard, complete with animals and a range of agricultural activities demonstrating the link between farming and food.


Details about next year’s Festival will be posted as soon as they are available.
