The ‘Taste of Spring’ food fair in Banbury Market Place on Sunday April 10 will bring people and great food together for an occasion where alfresco lunches and takeaway teas will be the orders of the day.

And there will be something for everyone.

Children will be catered for with an exciting treasure hunt with three Easter food hampers as prizes. All they have to do is collect an entry form from the Banbury Town Council gazebo, tour the stalls to answer 10 clues, and return the completed form to the gazebo. The prize draw from all correct entries will take place at 3pm.

There will be live music from 11am – and food and drinks will be plentiful with more than 50 stalls offering shoppers the chance to sample and buy tasty treats made by small producers.

Live music will add to the atmosphere and the free-to-enter festival will run from 10.30am until 4.30pm.

Town Mayor Shaida Hussain said: “Visitors to the event will be able to buy goods that aren’t generally available in everyday shops.

“As with all Banbury Town Council events, admission is free and we try to please all tastes and all age groups.

“Many stallholders have been to previous food festivals in Banbury and some will be first-timers who have heard positive comments about the town. It should be a fabulous day with something for everyone.”
