Selby area foodies have been out in number to support the towns sixth annual food festival today.

The free family-friendly event took over the Market Place as more than 30 stallholders offered a diverse range of high quality international and locally produced food and beverages.

Extending into the Finkle Street and Micklegate areas, visitors have been able to sample burgers with exotic meats, artisan pastries, pies and pasties, award-winning handmade fudge, and preserves.

Those looking for a tipple (or two) were catered for with a wide range of liqueurs and real Yorkshire ales and craft beers. These include beers made in Selby by the Olympia-based Jolly Sailor and Carlton's Little Black Dog micro-breweries.

Insightful cookery demonstrations were also on view for those looking to perfect that 'just right' steak or master a silky smooth sauce, courtesy of Yorkshire chef Nigel Brown.

Entertainment was laid on throughout the day thanks to a tie-up with the triumphantly successful Selby Arts Festival. Festival buskers performed to crowds in both the Market Place and in Finkle Street.
