Thai food, French crepes and gourmet sausages are among the delicacies set to be offered at a street food festival in Maidenhead town centre.
The King Street event is due to be tomorrow from 9am-10pm and on Saturday from 9am-7pm and will feature live entertainment.
The market has been organised by local lady Esther Brienza who hopes the event will bring a 'town square' type bustle and vibe to Maidenhead for two days.
A highlight of the food stalls includes company Pigs & Dogs, a street food stand selling high quality pork and hot dog dishes run by former Holby City and Coronation street star Angela Griffin along with her husband Jason.
