Abingdon Food Festival 3
The 3rd Abingdon Food Festival was held at Rye Farm Meadow this year.

The event was organised by Abingdon Rotary Vesper. Alan Rickman (pictured here) organised their publicity, and managed to get a lot a people to come along even though the weather was wet at times.

One of the star turns was a shiny lorry full of the latest in kitchen equipment, with some demos. This was organised and sponsored by Dream Doors (the Stert Street Kitchen specialist),

Then there were rows of gazebos where you could buy takeaway food. We enjoyed the freshly cooked samosas, and Pujabi cuisine from Sufi Spice. They let us stand in the back of their gazebo to shelter from the rain.

Other tents were selling food to take home, or concepts such as ‘how to live life on the veg’.

The Abingdon Food Festival is a great way to try new food and get new ideas about food.

    Curry and ice cream in the rain. A genuinely perfect afternoon!

    We had the Nigeran food (vegan version). Very nice, will have to find the recipe for the bean cakes.

    We had a really great time even in the rain!! So many and varied food and drinks to try. I hope it will be bigger next year and will make sure to mark the date in my diary. A real asset to Abingdon. Even though it was very wet there were still lots of people there and everyone seemed to be having a good time, I also enjoyed the music :-)

    We enjoyed cake and tea in the rain, listening to the fab music and meeting up with friends. The rain in the afternoon didn’t seem to put people off thankfully. Wonderful selection of food on offer – congratulations to the organisers!

    Once again, a great event organised by volunteers – Abingdon should be proud of all of them.
