Welcome to Castle Douglas Food Town

With approximately fifty local businesses involved in either producing or selling food and drink, it is easy to see why Castle Douglas has been designated a Food Town. The vibrancy and appeal of the town lies largely in the draw of the shops and cafés, restaurants and hotels.

In an age when consumers are often given conflicting advice about what food is good for them and which constituents they should avoid, it is refreshing that Castle Douglas offers high quality local produce which everyone can enjoy.

Food Town Day is held in June and designed to attract people to come and discover all that’s great about local food producers and sellers. There is always a fantastic buzz about the place on Food Town Day, as thousands of people flock to the town. King Street, the town’s main street, closes to traffic to allow traders to set up their food stalls with everything from artisan breads, cakes, pies, fish and meat including locally produced venison, beef and lamb.

To assuage the hunger pangs brought on by seeing so much variety of foodstuffs there is often a hog roast organised by one of the local butchers and the chance to sample lots of free tasty nibbles.

Lots of foodie attractions including cooking demonstrations make this a great day out for food lovers of all ages. Other attractions include children’s rides.
