27 Sep Great Yarmouth food festival
Taste buds are already tingling as a fine array of food and drink is set to be served up at the Great Yarmouth Food Festival 2015, which will run over three days in the town’s historic Market Place.
The foodie extravaganza, organised by Great Yarmouth Borough Council, takes place from Friday, September 25 to Sunday, September 27, with the aim of offering people a taste of the varied quality produce the borough has to offer – and further growing town centre footfall.
This fourth annual helping of the festival, taking place over the flagship weekend of the Norfolk Food and Drink Festival, will run especially from 10am to 9pm on Friday, and from 10am to 4pm both days at the weekend.
In addition to the traders on the historic charter market and the Wednesday and Saturday market, the festival will also include special stalls in a street café style, free tastings provided by local food producers, restaurateurs and traders, cooking demonstrations and more.

Cllr Barry Coleman, the deputy council leader, whose portfolio includes the town centre, markets and events, said: “As with other town centre events the borough council organises and supports, the main aim of the food festival is to provide yet another reason for more people to visit and thereby support footfall, trade and the local economy.
“The festival also helps put Great Yarmouth on the map as a foodie place and showcases the variety of quality produce available locally. It has grown in stature each season and this year’s is set to be the biggest and best yet, so I urge everyone to visit the Market Place on at least one of the days and sample the delights themselves.”
