Visitors indulged in tasty delights at eat:Portishead over the weekend.
The festival saw a record turnout at Portishead Marina and Parish Wharf on Satuirday, where more than 80 local food and drink producers attended the event.
People browsed farmers market favourites such as local ales, ciders and wine, bread, cakes and pies, plus street food, spirits and charcuterie. They were also entertained by DJs, street entertainers, buskers and children’s rides.
The festival has been a regular fixture in Portishead for the past four years.
One of the event organisers, Sarah Milner Simonds, said: "It was wonderful to be back in Portishead with so many local food and drink producers and so many people.

"We want to be a good neighbour and to extend our thanks to those who are alongside the marina for their warm welcome and encouragement."

Organiser Bev Milner Simonds, said: "This time last year we held our first event post lockdown in Portishead and went on to win Gold at the Bristol Bath and Somerset Tourism Awards.
"We didn't think winning an award for a festival during a global pandemic could be topped, but Saturday had to be a best-ever event for us - happy visitors, happy councillors and happy producers.
"Thank you Portishead and see you on August 13, 2022."
