The mouths of shoppers will be watering when Halifax Food and Drink Festival comesto town.

Dozens of stalls will dot the town centre selling an array of tantalising treats from local , national and international producers, from June 20-21, in the annual Halifax Food and Drink Festival.

Organisers are busy ‘prepping’ for what is expected to be another busy year for traders with thousands of food and drink shoppers expected to the markets.

Around 100 stalls selling homemade food and drink, a homegrown Farmer’s Market and a demonstration kitchen will feature in this year’s festival.

Calderdale College’s head of catering, Richard Walsh, will host and compare the demonstration kitchen on June 20 when he will share his tips and tricks of the trade.

Local, national and international cuisine along with artisan breads, cakes, ales, cider and cocktails will be in full flow over the two-day special event.

Orgnaniser Rachel McAlley, said: “June will be upon us in no time and the Halifax Food & Drink Festival is set to be another huge event in the calendar.

“We’ve got almost 100 stalls taking to the streets of Halifax, including Southgate, Cornmarket, Russell Street and Woolshops.

“The choice of food is outstanding with Caribbean, Indian, Thai, African, Polish foods and much more.

“There’s fresh hot food for customers to try and eat whilst strolling the streets and the festival wouldn’t be complete without local bars and breweries showcasing their talents.
