The Abergavenny Market – A Visual Journey With Food, Music and More

By Lakshmi:  

The Abergavenny Market, located in the town of the same name in South Wales is a colorful introduction to a smorsgasboard of local foods, crafts and more.  One hundred plus vendors spanning indoors and out bring the heart of this town to life on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.  We gorged on Welsh cakes and olives, admired handmade guitars, woodwork and jewelry and learnt a few Welsh recipes as well.
