Lyn Food Festival

The Lyn Food Festival showcases the very best food and drink produced across the west country

Follow your nose to discover the finest food Exmoor has to offer at the Lyn Food Fest, taking place this year on Sunday 30 September at Lynton Town Hall. There’ll be a host of stalls selling an impressive display of tempting delights from all around the area.

Make room in the freezer to stock up on free-range chicken, sausages, ruby red beef, pork and Exmoor lamb. Look out for organic veg, locally grown herbs and spices, chilli plants and home-made preserves. It might be as well to organise a lift home; there’ll be Devon sparkling wine, Exmoor Gin distilled in the Brendon Valley, Porlock Cider and even Thunder Toffee Vodka. For teetotallers there’s delicious Somerset apple drinks and fine pressed 100% natural fruit juices.  

Adding an international flavour to the event there’ll be Spanish and Basque specialists Goierri Foods, The Anglo-Indian Chef and German gourmets Marion’s Deli all based in Devon. Loosen your belt for brownies and baklava, chocolate, churros and cheese.

The Festival runs from 10:30-4pm in the forecourt, foyer and main hall. There is a café and festival bar.

Organiser Christine Bowden and her volunteer team have many years’ experience in both the food trade and exhibiting at local, national and international events. All profits from the food festival goes to local charities in the Lynton and Lynmouth area. “We made a healthy profit last year,” says Christine. “Money raised goes to support small local projects that make a difference to our area. It’s great fun too.”

This is a great opportunity to celebrate the delicious local produce we have here. The varied greater Exmoor landscape is a veritable store cupboard of delights,” said Visit Exmoor Marketing Manager Jennette Baxter. “It is always, deservedly, a very popular event, so get there in good time!
