Dartmouth Food Festival

Last week, we went to the famous annual Dartmouth Food Festival. There were many stalls there selling all kinds of food including some familiar brands such as Burts Crisps, which are actually made in Devon.

What was going on there?

Many local food suppliers turned up and put their food on display so people could buy it. Many had special offers on! Anyway, here are some pictures we took there:

Different kinds of food

The smells of the food festival were magnificent. You could smell the spicy chilli con carnie and the cooking meat from miles away. Not literally, though.

Crabbing

As well as exploring the Dartmouth Food Festival, we also came across many people who were crabbing.

What is crabbing?

Crabbing is when you catch crabs using bait (we used ham) and a special net as well as a bucket. Most coastal towns will sell this equipment in shops. You release the crabs once you’re finished, of course.

The views…

Moving away from the food festival… and the crowds… you can see the beautiful views of the town just opposite Dartmouth.
