Foodies were out in force for a fun festival which attracted visitors from across Renfrewshire and beyond.

The fourth annual Paisley Food and Drink Festival served up a welcome economic boost for the area, with more than 10,000 people turning up to sample some of Scotland’s best produce.

The two-day event, staged on Friday and Saturday, took place at Abbey Close.

Visitors were able to sample some tasty treats from the vendors of the award-winning Pitt Street Food Market, as well as the likes of Babu Kitchen, Japan Street Food and Scozzese Pizza.

Also taking part was the team from Three Sisters Bake, which is based at Quarrier’s Village.

Gillian Reith, of Three Sisters Bake, said: “We love the Paisley Food and Drink Festival – it’s one of the most local events that we do, so we meet a lot of people who are excited to see us here.”

One of the most popular attractions at this year’s festival were cooking demonstrations by Masterchef: The Professionals winner Jamie Scott.

He was on hand to offer visitors some top tips and tricks of the trade.

Jamie said: “It’s a great thing to be able to promote food, tourism and culture in the area.”

The event ran alongside the Paisley Beer Festival – Scotland’s largest real ale festival – run by the Renfrewshire branch of the Campaign for Real Ale.
