Held over two days on August 25th and 26th of 2013, the festival featured different areas of downtown that event goers could visit. These included:
- Italian Market – Located at Charter Square in the ARC Shopping Center.
- World Market – Located at Cornhill Square and Buttermaket Street featuring tastes and flavors of the Caribbean, Continental, and South America; with Mediterranean, Jamaican, and Asian dishes.
- Abbeygate Street Mini-Farm – Back by popular demand, Pygmy goats, miniature pigs, rabbits, miniature horse, and an Alpaca were on display that kids could pet.
- Angel Hill Farmers’ Market – Offerings from more than 30 local farmers and producers. Everything here was from an area within 30 miles of Bury St Edmunds.
- Cooking Demonstrations – Chefs from leading restaurants demonstrated step by step how they prepared meals from menus at their restaurants, they also answered questions from the audience.
- Langton Place Chilli Festival – Stalls selling chilli base sauces and chefs from So Bar were cooking a special chili recipe. Mariachi Mexteca musicians were a fun addition to the festivities.
We spent a very enjoyable day at the festival. The food and drink were great, the weather was perfect, lots of people browsing the stalls, and the cooking demonstrations were fun to watch. Hopefully this becomes a yearly tradition in Bury St Edmunds.
