Manx food and drink will be showcased this weekend at the 10th Isle of Man Food and Drink Festival.
The two day event will take place in the Villa Marina gardens.
Environment, Food and Agriculture Minister Geoffrey Boot says: "Our research estimates the event itself is now worth £250,000 to the local economy.
"But the real focus is to showcase the variety and quality of Manx produce to the people of the Isle of Man as well as those from further afield.
"The growth in the festival over the past decade demonstrates the explosion in Manx produce and products."
BBC Countryfile presenter Adam Henson will be the special guest and will meet exhibitors and guests on the Saturday.
There will also be live cooking demonstrations, music and children’s activities.
