The centre of Hitchin was the place to be for lovers of good food and drink last weekend.
Market Place and High Street played host to more than 50 stalls offering a mouth-watering collection of great food and beverages across Saturday and Sunday.
Mouth-watering wares for the large numbers who flocked to the two-day event included German bratwurst sausages, ‘posh’ hot dogs, Caribbean, South African, and Mexican street food – as well as gourmet pies, toasted sandwiches, crepes, and a whole host of other sumptuous offerings such as delicious jams, pickles and preserves, and even a mobile cocktail stall.
Town centre manager Keith Hoskins said: “We’ve been absolutely delighted by the festival which is growing every year.
“The feedback from everyone has been fantastic. It’s created a huge buzz in the town and the atmosphere has been great.”
