COMMUNITY based environmental group Gwyrddio Penarth Greening (GPG) will once again be hosting the ever popular Penarth Local Food Festival this summer.

This year's festival will take place on Sunday, July 21, from 11am to 4pm. Once again the location will be The Kymin House and Grounds on Beach Road, an ideal location with stunning views across the Bristol Channel.

The festival has fast become one of Penarth's summer highlights and provides a unique showcase for the very best of local produce and local food businesses. This year's mouth-watering line up of stalls includes all the regular favourites such as Arth Wines, Foxy’s Deli and more plus some tasty new additions.

Visitors will be able to sample and buy a wide range of fresh local produce, Welsh cheeses, breads, preserves, Welsh honey, local beers, locally grown herbs and much more.

There will also be a wide variety of hot food on offer including the very popular Glam lamb burgers, a fish grill from the Fig Tree, vegetarian treats from Hamptons and the Parsnipship as well as a selection of tapas from festival first timers Bar 44.

Another exiting new addition at this year's event is the Stanwell School catering department who will be showcasing the excellent work that they are doing in providing fresh, tasty and healthy food.

As usual a café service will be provided by Travellers in Mind whose chocolate brownies are always a festival hit.

In addition to enjoying the tasty food and drink on offer visitors will be able to relax and enjoy a selection of acoustic music acts while children will be catered for with dedicated kid's craft tent that this year explores the natural world of butterflies.

For GPG the festival provides an important opportunity to raise awareness of sustainable and environmental food issues and to highlight other GPG community projects.

It is also an important showcase for the GPG ‘Shop in Penarth’ scheme that promotes local independent businesses and highlights their importance to the local economy.

"We are thrilled with how the Festival has grown in just two years," said Anthony Slaughter, co-organiser of the event, "Its success shows a real sense of community support for the local and the sustainable."

Entrance to the festival is free and open to all.
