Hay on Wye is an interesting town of narrow twisty streets and interesting shops. Not just bookshops! The Festival takes place in various venues across the town, but the main food and vintage festivals are centred in the Market Place in or near the large marquee.
By lunchtime on Saturday the food festival was extremely busy with very little room to move, but there were still plenty of tasty treats on show to reward those who patiently weaved their way through the crowds. Wonderful smells from pies and soups stimulated the appetite!
|Delicious savoury muffins.|
|Locally made salsas.|
Sunday dawned fine and clear, and the food festival stalls of the previous day had been replaced by those of "Hay Does Vintage'.
|Pretty Vintage Items in the Old Electric Shop|
|The Cutest Booties in the Old Electric Shop!|
Hay on Wye is famous as a fantastic place for anyone who loves books, but there's much more to see and do here. This little town is a gem of a place for small specialist shops too. There's a particularly nice stationers, and several galleries with items of all sorts and a wide price range. Highly recommended for a weekend visit.
