It was proving so popular that by the end of Saturday many stalls were running out of produce.

The beer was also going down well in the town hall where the Round Table were manning the pumps of a variety of ales.

Festival chairman Philip Angier said: "We are really pleased with this year's event.

"We're pleased that the weather gods have been so kind but alos because we have managed to get more local producers involved.

"About 80 per cent of them are from Northumberland, the Scottish Borders and Tyne and Wear and that is great because it's about celebrating local food.
