This is how a food trail goes:
10am meet up at the Cornstore @Home, 41 Thomas Street for coffees and the beginning of our tasting trail, trail end 1pm-2pm, depending on how pressed people are for time
Then it's onwards to various and varied food stops, a butchers shop, many market stalls in the Milk Market, full of tastings and demonstrations, maybe a little snifter of a drink and plenty of introductions to the producers of the finest of local and artsian food in the region. You will eat to your tummys' content and have plenty of fun on the way.
We leave the market and take a walk and a little historical talk to our final destination, which changes every time but always ends up somewhere indoors and somewhere delicious.
If you love food and love spending time doing something different, whether you're new to town, a visitor or someone who just wants to try new things, this food trail is for you.
