Honiton was awash with hungry visitors who came to sample some of the best food the South West has to offer.
It is the second year Gate to Plate was staged in Honiton - the first was crowned with a visit from the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.
This year's festival, on Saturday (September 28), was originally planned to be held in August, but was postponed after stormy weather.
The event was organised by East Devon District Council, and supported by Honiton Town Council.
Councillor John Zarczynski, Honiton mayor, said: "This year's Gate to Plate was a huge success and well-attended.

"Everyone I have spoken to enjoyed the event and are looking forward to another Gate to Plate next year."
