Flavour Fest, the South West’s premier food festival is back for 2011, taking over Plymouth City Centre from 19- 21 August.

Now in its 8th year, Flavour Fest has grown to become one of the largest and most successful food festivals in the South West. One of the highlights in Plymouth’s events calendar, the free entry event regularly attracts more than 150,000 visitors to the city.

Amanda Bishop, Events Coordinator for Plymouth City Centre Company has been in charge of Flavour Fest since 2009, she said: ”The great thing about Flavour Fest is that its energy is contagious. If you’re in Plymouth when it’s on you just can’t help but get involved.” The sights, sounds and smells of Flavour Fest carry to every corner of the city centre drawing crowds hungry to experience the fabulous food and drink on display. ”Flavour Fest now takes over the whole of the Piazza, transforming the space into a bustling, Continental-style market” said Amanda “and this year is bigger and better than ever before, so we’re also using Sundial Square and Place De Brest on Armada Way.” All the favourites are back for this year, along with some new elements to whet the appetite and spark the culinary imagination.

The Food Market Over 120 local food producers and traders from across the South West will set up shop on Plymouth’s Piazza, selling the very best of regional produce. You can expect everything from fantastic fruit and veg to outstanding organic meat and everything in between including home baked cakes, artisan bread and pastries, preserves, chutneys, cheeses, beers and wines plus much more. At Flavour Fest you can always try before you buy, so come hungry and ready to sample!
