Food from farm to fork will be celebrated in Harleston this weekend with a mix local produce, artisan treats and food and drink walks and open farms.

The Harleston Food and Drink Festival returns on October 6 from 9.30am to 3.30pm, with a street market with stalls selling an array of locally-made products, from savoury pies to mouth-watering cakes and pastries, locally-reared meat to bottled preserves, artisan bread to apple juice and cider.

The event will also include Brown's Banger Bonanza, outside the shop, a vintage hop on and off bus service, and music from a capella singing group Too Many Cooks.

There will also be guided Food and Drink Walks every hour from The Swan Hotel that will stop at shops to sample local produce. Places are £8 including samples.

The festival coincides with Open Farm Day from 11am-3pm at Hill Farm on Redenhall Road and Shotford Hall Farm on Mendham Low Road.
