Food and Vintage Fairs

This weekend, the marquees went up in the market square again.

Saturday was the Food Fair. I always go up to see what goodies are on offer, and usually come away with some Jacobi beer. This time they have a four-pack beer carrier, and a new beer to try, made with honey. I had a trial sip of their porter as well, which sparkles in the mouth, and finished the selection off with Red Squirrel IPA and Original. I treated myself to some focaccia from Caroline's Bakery too.
Outside, a male voice choir was singing (from Talgarth?) and there were stalls selling herbs and snacks and vegetables, with crafts in the Buttermarket, and Marie Curie Cancer Care teas in the Cheesemarket.

On Sunday was the Vintage Fair - which actually started with cocktails down at the Old Electric Shop on the Friday evening. I always miss this one, as it's on a Sunday, so I just saw them setting up and taking it down at the end. From all accounts it was a successful event again, though.
The Old Electric Shop has popped up and stayed. Sally Matthews is now exhibiting some of her animal paintings and sculptures there, and they're going to start doing craft workshops soon - fabric flower brooches for children, and shopping bags for grown-ups to start with.
