Enjoy the best of Britain during British Food Fortnight

British Food Fortnight runs from 17th September to 2nd October this year and is a celebration of the best that British food has to offer.

British Food Fortnight is the biggest annual, national festival of British food and drink. First started in 2002, it is now in its 15th year and there are competitions and events planned across the country to celebrate this milestone. Many businesses and organisations are taking part, including schools and hospitals as people come together to enjoy the excellent produce Britain creates.

On the Love British Food website you can find 14 things you can do during British Food Fortnight to take part. These including buying British products that feature the Red Tractor logo, buying food that is in season and therefore likely to be home sourced, and cooking a British meal for your friends and family. We all love a good bangers and mash don’t we?

Locally in Hampshire, local shops, pubs and restaurants are likely to be celebrating so keep your eye out for special promotions. Down on the Hampshire coast, the village of Emsworth celebrates British Food Fortnight in style with a whole fortnight of activities including farm open days, Brewery open days and wine tastings, cooking masterclasses and even a Tea Dance. In Berkshire you could take the opportunity to shop at your local Thames Valley Farmers Market Cooperative, which is in Reading on 17th September and 1st October, and Newbury on 18th September and 2nd October.

If you are based in Surrey, why not head along to the Surrey Game and Country Fair at Loseley Park in Guildford on Sunday 25th September. In the Food Hall and Food Theatre you can enjoy a wide range of food and drinks grown, reared, brewed, caught or baked in Surrey.
