Huon Taste smash hit

After the Taste of the Huon saw around 12,000 swamp into the Ranelagh Recreation Grounds yesterday, keen festival goers have flocked in again today.

The Wolfe Brothers have been entertaining the masses this afternoon, on the way to wrapping up the fun at 4.30.

Amongst the approximately 100 stallholders is Alyssa from Huonville's The Honey Pot.

"Manuka honey we get from Bruny Island, it's the one that comes with medicinal value, so it's got healing properties to it, it comes with a classification called MGO, and the higher the MGO the better it is for you, so you can use it on open wounds or coughs and colds, it's basically anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory."

A Taste of the Huon is now in its 26th year
