On the Saturday, Hay Food Festival celebrates all that’s good about winter cooking, with over 50 stalls showcasing the very best of local produce, from savoury to sweet.

On the Sunday Hay Market Square is transformed into a festive outdoor artisan market. With a wide range of traders offering a diverse collection of local arts and crafts. Get ahead with your Christmas shopping here.
