I had been waiting for this day for months and it definitely didn't disappoint!
We caught the train into Abergavenny this morning with the crowds and crowds of other festival goers, all eager to arrive at our food heaven destination. We walked the short stroll into town from the station and the smell of delicious food filled the air.
First stop was the street stalls selling all types of things from the beautiful galetteselow to lavender jelly and the onion necklaces that you imagine french men to be wearing.
Evan and I tried a gooey chocolate brownie from a stall selling all the flavours of brownies that you could imagine. It wasn't the best brownie I had ever eaten but they definitely looked good.
We spend hours and hours meandering along amongst thousands of other people eager to fill their bellies with the vast array of goods that the market stalls were selling, until we'd decided that the tasters weren't quite enough and we were ready to find a place to sit and devour some tasty food ourselves.
We headed on over to the castle where we found a food stall selling freshly made, and I literally mean FRESHLY made, pasta.
They were actually making the pasta fresh with eggs before cooking each meal to order. I had the cherry tomato, garlic and basil and Dan had the pulled pork ragu, both equally as tasty! We found a space on the banking to sit and eat while we watched a doughnut eating contest happening on a stage.
I had spent so so much money already and if I'd have known that they knock down all the prices as the day goes along in order to sell off their goods, I'd have gone to the festival a little later in the day. On the way back to the train station we managed to get a punnet of Victoria plums, blueberries and a giant pumpkin all for a measly £5! That's our plum jam and pumpkin soup sorted.
All in all it was a brilliant day and I can't wait to return again next year. until then, we have plenty of goodies to keep out bellies happy!
