Wales is home to a fantastic choice of food festivals to visit during your stay for great entertainment and local produce. The Welsh Food Festival is held each September in Welshpool or while you are on a summer city break to Cardiff, pay a visit to the International Food and Drink Festival which is held each July. The Abergavenny Food Festival is held each September or if you are a seafood lover, head to the Anglesey Oyster and Welsh Produce Festival which is held annually every October. Wales also offers a good choice of local ale trails including the Flintshire Ale Trail which starts in Mold.
Farmers markets are also very popular in Wales and include the Sunday Riverside Farmer’s markets in Cardiff, the Mold farmer’s market which takes place twice monthly on a Saturday and the Aberystwyth farmer’s market which also takes place two Saturdays per month. You could also visit some of the area’s excellent farm shops including Hootons Home-grown in Brynsiencyn, Anglesey which stocks an excellent range of pick-your-own produce and the Ludlow Food Centre which hosts a deli, bakery, butchers and dairy.
