My first weekend back in Darlington was spent unpacking, applying for jobs and trying to get myself re-organised. Amongst all that, I did manage to take a peek at the Darlington Food Festival.
And although it was strange for a high street to contain more than three stores, it was a lot of fun.
Of course, I tucked into free samples as my mum and I drooled over the delicious baked goodies. I was raised in a very foodie family which means that I have a love for really good food. Bad for waistline? Definitely. But who can complain when my tastebuds are having a party!
Suddenly feeling very peckish, we popped down to the town square to check out some food and almost decided on pies from this adorable stall…
Before settling on Chorizo sausage wraps and muesli bars.
We were slightly distracted by the street performers…
Before I wrap up this post, I do have to tell you on my favourite part of the festival: Granny Tourismo. Yup, my town had racing, dancing grannies on shopping trollies. Is that envy I detect?
Boy, have I missed this strange old place!
