More than 1,500 people descended on a Broughty Ferry hotel for the second annual Ferry Food Fayre.
Self-confessed foodies enjoyed Sunday stalls offering the finest Ferry produce at the Woodlands hotel event which was organised by the Broughty Ferry Traders’ Association.
Guests were able to sample a hog roast, new ice cream flavours, cakes, choice meat cuts and much more at the Sunday event, with stalls from Ferry traders including Jessie’s Kitchen and Bruach.
Visitors were also able to witness the Great Broughty Bake Off, a competition modelled on the successful TV programme the Great British Bake Off.
Event organiser Jan McTaggart said the Food Fayre had improved on last year’s success.
She said: “Last year we had anticipated around 400-500 people would attend, and we were almost overwhelmed by more than 1800 visitors.
“This year, we expanded the area to allow for more stalls to be set out and for there to be more space for people to move in. In fact, we had three times as much space available than last year’s event.
“Visitors enjoyed talks and demonstrations from some of Broughty Ferry’s finest food experts.
“Another popular attraction were the organic hens display, which the children loved. Organic hens are free range and are raised on only organic feed.
“We tried to make it as Ferry-centric as possible, with all of the stalls and stands having a strong Broughty Ferry connection.
“The hog roast was this year provided by Andy at Bruach, who spent all of Saturday night attending to it, which is very well appreciated.
“All of the volunteers have helped make this Ferry Food Fayre a great success.”
Attendees were also able to donate to local charities, including the Dundee Foodbank and Helm.
Jan felt it was appropriate to use the Food Fayre as an opportunity to highlight the important work the Dundee Foodbank does within the community.
Proceeds from the raffle were given to Helm, a local charity who help young, vulnerable people in to employment.
The charity provides a creative, supportive learning service and not only focuses on helping young people gain employment, but also emphasising the importance of health, wellbeing and personal growth.
