Organisers are ex-pecting the Romsey Food Festival to be bigger and better than ever as it is back with a new date and a fresh approach.
Thousands of food lovers are expected to descend on the town this weekend as they restock their larders and celebrate all things local.
Stomachs will growl and mouths will water as onlookers watch culinary demonstrations by Chris Rock head chef at The White Horse Hotel and Brasserie, Iain Longhorn from The Three Tuns and chefs from the Lime Wood Hotel.
But visitors will not just go home with tips, as Hampshire Food Market will be on Alma Road and there will be more than 40 stalls boasting local produce, from meat, fruit and vegetables to beer, cakes and jams There will also be plenty of children’s activities, Kidsrome Farm, a circus act, face painting and cake decorating.
Organiser Peter Gale from Waitrose in Romsey, said: “We’re hoping it grows year on year and gets bigger and bigger.
“I want to see what we can do for Romsey and bring more people to the town.
“I don’t think that local food gets enough recognition and I think it’s a good opportunity for suppliers to go out there and show off what they do.”
The free festival will be in Romsey town centre between 10am and 4pm Sunday.
