Wells produce makers are invited to showcase their goods at a local food festival this February.

Monkton Elm Garden & Pet Centre is hosting a special Food Festival to celebrate Somerset produce on February 23 and 24.

The Garden Centre is urging Wells businesses to get in touch and book a stall.

Norma Moore, General Manager of the family-run garden centre between Taunton and Bridgwater, said: "To celebrate local producers, we are holding a food festival so our customers can see exactly what sort of wonderful food we have on offer in the area.

"We're hoping to attract artisan and niche biscuit, bread, cake, cheese, chutney, jam and sausage makers to the event.

"It also fits with our policy to try and support local suppliers wherever possible.

The Food Festival will be held in the Jubilee building at Monkton Elm Garden and Pet Centre and pitches cost £25 a day or £50 for the whole weekend.

Stallholders will need to bring their own tables and chairs, however electricity is available.

Suppliers interested in a pitch at the food festival should call Porcupine PR on 01278 446801 or e-mail hello@porcupinepr.co.uk by Friday 15 February.

Norma added: "We are hoping to have around 20 producers at the event and we will allocate spaces on a first come, first served basis.

Companies can find out more about the garden centre by visiting www.monktonelmgardencentre.co.uk.
