HAVERFORDWEST’s food festival will return this year with a move to the town centre this year after taking a year off in 2018.

HaverFoodFest was last held in 2017 on the car park at County Hall and this year will make a move to the streets of the town centre.

The food festival will take place on Saturday, May 4 between 10am and 3pm, with food companies from across Wales coming to Pembrokeshire’s county town to sell their wares at stalls throughout the streets.

“The idea is to move it into the town centre to help the traders and promote Haverfordwest and to get people into the town,” said Cllr Tim Evans, a member of the committee behind the festival.

Quay Street is set to be closed to all traffic between 8am and 5pm so stalls can fill the road, there will also be vendors on Castle Square, Swan Square, Bridge Street, the Old Bridge and at the Riverside Shopping Centre.

“So far we have 39 stalls signed up and paid for, so if anybody is interested they should get in touch,” said Sally Williams of the committee.

Award winning cider company Afal y Graig of Port Talbot is among the stallholders, as well as local businesses including the Pembrokeshire Sea Salt Company, Cinnamon Grove Gin and Parc y Dderwen fermented foods.

There will also be acoustic music from a variety of local acts on two stages provided by Pure West Radio and children’s activities.

Members of the HaverFoodFest committee visited Frome in Somerset during the summer last year to see the local street market, which has been lauded for its part in the town’s regeneration.

“This is why we decided we have got to give it a go,” said Sally, “It was good for that town so it could be good for ours.”
