Food NI, Northern Ireland’s food and drink promotion body, hosted its first outdoor showcase since the start of the coronavirus pandemic at the big DalFest event at Galgorm Castle and Estate earlier in the month.
Dozens of local artisan producers took part in the unique Food and Drink Courtyard at the popular event.
Food NI’s Michele Shirlow said: “It was great to be back at an outdoor show after so long and to hear that all the participating artisans enjoyed the event and did good business.
“We are looking forward now to the Food Pavilion again at the forthcoming Balmoral Show in September.”
The event was previously known as the Dalriada Music and Food Festival but was cancelled in 2020 because of the pandemic.
