All that is best in food produce goes on display at Elgin festival

Food and Drink Festival (Elgin BID)

Over 70 stalls, exhibitors and demonstrations promoting all that is best in Moray’s food and drink industry attracted large crowds to Elgin at the weekend.

The fourth City of Elgin Food and Drink Festival, organised to coincide with the Scottish Food and Drink Fortnight, was organised by the Elgin Business Improvement District.

A display by the current holder of the Cullen Skink world title, Tracy Fuller, was one of the most popular attractions at the festival, which took place for a fourth successive year in the city centre.

From cupcakes to quality fruit, vegetables and meat the variety of stalls had something for everyone – although early sunshine gave way to a torrential downpour that caused a few problems for stall holders and customers alike.

However, late into the afternoon the exhibits and trade stalls remained busy with Faith Houlding from Scribbles Pizza House commenting: “It was really good – a lot of people said they did not know where we were and it was a good opportunity to show our face to the public and show we were not just about Pizza.”

Councillor John Divers, a member of the Elgin BID board, said: “Barring that brief spell of bad weather in the afternoon it was a success as far as I could see. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.”
