Hundreds of people gathered at the Lyn Food Fest in Lynton yesterday with an array of different treats tempting them from pasties to cakes.
The festival has been running annually in the town for six years but this is only the second year of it being run by the current committee.
The event is held in Lynton Town Hall with stalls set up outside as well as spread throughout the hall itself.
One of the organisers Lynton town councillor Christine Bowden said: “It has been great, we have definitely had hundreds coming in. Everybody seems to be doing really well.”
There were 35 traders at the festival, one of the traders was Dora Johnston who runs The Homegrown Catering Company, based in Combe Martin.
She said: “It has been a lovely, friendly event. It is a fantastic local event and there has been a really good turnout of local people.
Another trader Kat Denyer, from cake business Amanda Janes in Lynton, said she had already had some orders from Christmas cakes.
She said: “We are trying to push for our Christmas cake orders and we have had a couple of orders today. It seems to be going really well.”
One stall not selling food was tree surgeon Lawrence Fry who was selling a range of turned wood bowls and boards.
He said: “I didn’t think I could be a part of it but then I was told I could so I thought I would as it is on my doorstep.
“Trade has been good, it has been a good start, I will definitely come back.”
