Snacks, meals, and tipples from around the world were on display as the town’s Market Hill was transformed into a food-lovers paradise on Saturday and Sunday, with dozens of stalls and pop-up eateries lining the street.

There was also plenty of entertainment for guests to enjoy with a live music stage and children’s entertainers, as well as craft beer and cider stalls for adults.

The Market Square Group, which organised the event, said: “Thank you to everyone who came to St Ives Food and Drink Festival at the weekend as well as all the fantastic traders. Looking forward to being back in the town in 2018.”
