The new Taste of the West food village, in its first month, has already attracted scores of visitors keen to sample produce from across the region.

John Sheaves, Taste of the West chief executive, said: “Five years ago, I was lucky enough to visit one of the world’s greatest authentic food villages in Singapore.

“I was so inspired that I vowed to bring this concept back to the south west and showcase the best food and drink from the region.

“When East Devon District Council approached me about managing a new food village at the revamped Queens Drive Space on Exmouth seafront, it was the perfect opportunity to put my plan into action.”

At the food village there are a number of local food producers, operating on a rotating basis, for the rest of the summer.
