Hundreds of stallholders announced for Abergavenny Food Festival

Caws Cenarth’s Caws Teifi

The biggest food festival in Wales announced its full list of stallholders today – and here are the tasty food and drink stalls which will line the streets and Market Hall in Abergavenny later this month.

The event which last year drew a crowd of over 31,000 visitors will take place from the festival’s creamery and distillery tours and masterclass on Friday September 18 to the demonstration-packed schedules of Saturday September 19 and Sunday September 20.

Chefs and cooks in the line-up include Raymond Blanc, Gizzi Erskine, James Sommerin, and Frances Quinn.

Tickets are still available for Michelin-starred chef Raymond Blanc’s masterclass at noon on September 19 (£12), but events such as chef Tom Kerridge’s “in conversation with” night on September 18 at the Borough Theatre have sold out.

Check the list of masterclasses and latest ticket availability here.
