Hungerford Food Festival!



The Food Festival in Hungerford is always a roaring success and this year was no different.  Stalls line the Marketplace with fresh produce being cooked, stewed, sliced, squeezed and most importantly sampled by yours truly.

The freshly pressed apple juice is always my favourite, but the smell from the outdoor barbecue was enough to make your mouth water.

It took me quite a long time to walk the short distance from the front door of The Arcade to the Town Hall due to the sheer number of people in the crowd. 
The town hall was filled fit to bursting with interesting stalls, including local honey producers and grow your own mushroom kits to take home.
  The Market Place was completely packed and nobody went away disappointed.  The food was delicious, the stallholders were friendly and the weather was fantastic!

We also had the pleasure of some familiar faces from the Farmers Market selling their lovely fresh vegetables and cheeses.
I tried my luck at the “Guess The Weight of The Pumpkin” game.  My guess was 6st 6lb.  How far off do you think I was?  Needless to say, I didn’t win.


Thank you to all the people that got up early in the morning to set up the stalls and stay late at night taking them down again.  Thank you to the stallholders and local producers for sharing your lovely food with us and thank you to all that came and made it a brilliant day out!
If you missed it this time around and are kicking yourself, no doubt the Food Fest will be back, same time, same place next year.  I certainly can’t wait!
