The Day of the Food Fair

There was a lot going on in town on Saturday.
A cycle race in aid of Cystic Fibrosis was coming over the bridge to the clock tower in bursts of cyclists throughout the morning.
Tinto House garden was open, as part of the National Garden Scheme - it was open today as well. Tim the Gardener spent the afternoon talking to visitors, and explaining what the plants are. I saw him later, having a well deserved pint of Guinness outside the Rose and Crown.
And the Food Fair was in full swing all day. I got bread from Talgarth Mill, meat from Trealy Farm, cake from one of the ladies who does the WI stall on the market on Thursdays, and beer from Jacobi brewery. Outside herbs were on sale, and a ladies' choir was singing. Later there was a brass band. There were crafts in the Buttermarket, too.
And the sun shone - a lovely summer day.

and today the marquee was taken over by Hay Does Vintage - clothes and furniture and all manner of vintage stuff.
