NATIONAL Fair Food Week was celebrated on Sunday at the Albany Town Square with the annual Food for Thought Festival.

Attendees enjoyed soaking in the sun and devouring tasty treats from a range of local food vendors.

Cultcha Kitchen, Haramin Food Van, Paella to You and Royale Patisserie were among the range of food stalls people could choose from.

Local produce on show included sourdough breads, locally-produced cheeses, locally-grown and produced organic jams, chutneys, honey, wines and beers.

Food industry leaders provided useful information on agricultural systems and fresh produce, with discussions led by Jude Blereau, Tracy Lansdall and Rick Bieber.

The fun, relaxed atmosphere was maintained by music act Soulin Wild and local acts The Easterly’s with Dave Rastrick and Jazztrix Duo.

Southern Edge Arts also provided circus equipment for children to enjoy and have a play with.
