DUMFRIES & Galloway’s Food Town, Castle Douglas, will host its first ever Harvest Food Festival this weekend, during Scottish Food and Drink Fortnight.

The two-day festival will see the traditional market town packed with events, activities and festivities that are designed to celebrate the produce of the town’s host region.

It will join in with the “change one thing” theme of Scottish Food and Drink Fortnight by encouraging people to support the local produce that’s available on their doorstep.

The line-up of chefs includes Billy Boyter, Scotland’s newest Michelin starred chef, from The Cellar at Anstruther, Scottish Chef of the Year Ian McAndrew from the Blackaddie in Sanquha and Martin Avey of Del Amitri at Powfoot.
