FOODIES didn’t let the weather stop them from coming out in force at Bridgwater Food and Drink Festival today.

There were more than 60 food, drink and craft stalls, around several town centre locations, selling produce including street food, spirits and liqueurs, organic fruit and veg, breads and cakes, jams and preserves and scented candles.

The annual event couldn’t take place last year due to the pandemic so it’s been two years since visitors got to experience the culinary delights the free-to-attend festival has to offer.

“A great performance from the rock choir and the amazing Paul wheeler with punch and Judy was definitely the way to do it,” they added.
