A FOOD and drink fayre took place in Wrexham today (April 13), with craftspeople from across Wales attracting huge crowds.

Hosted by Wrexham Street Market, the event was held on Queen's Square from 10am and 4pm.

It was due to take place last weekend, but was postponed because of Storm Kathleen which hit the UK.

There was an array of stallholders, selling homemade goods, local produce, sweet treats, street food and beers and rum.

They were joined by a host of craft stallholders selling handmade items and unique gifts. 

Vendors included Willow Bank Crafts, Dolally Lady, Heidi Lou, The Bee Apothecary, The Little Cheesemonger, candlemakers Mojo Coco, Tabletaps Boards and Beer.

As well as the food and craft stalls, there was face painting and free giant games for kids to enjoy, and live acoustic music throughout the day. 

The Indifferent Academic told the Leader: “It’s been very successful, the weather’s been on our side of course.

“The added bonus from the food court has really brought people in.

“I think tradition is really important and I know people are really happy to have some atmosphere back in town again.”

The Litte Cheesemonger, from Prestatyn, said: “It has been good, it was meant to be last week so we kept our fingers crossed for this week.

“Not too windy, not too rainy, the kids can play out, there’s a lot of people about, it’s good.”
