On Sunday, 28th September 2014 the Hampshire Farmers’ Market at Winchester will be alive with activity and special events to celebrate the great Hampshire Hog, with the return of the popular Piglet Racing Event, which attracted large groups of spectators last year.
Alex Handford, HFM Business Manager commented: “The Piglet Racing event was such a huge success last year, enjoyed by all especially the children, that we decided to run it again. The whole event is a great opportunity for us all to celebrate the award winning food that the Hampshire Farmers’ Market brings to Winchester at our fortnightly markets and to give visitors a fun day out for all the family.”
There will be a number of pig themed competitions for the children on the day and also the return of the Smoothie Bike with market visitors using their own peddle power to produce delicious smoothie drinks.
The HFM pork producers will be presenting their award winning produce with the HFM Taster Unit, on site cooking up a wide variety of pork sausages for visitors to the market to sample and enjoy, with the opportunity to vote for the Best Hampshire Sausage.
A number of the HFM pork producers will also be presenting some special offers on the day.
The Hampshire Hog Day will be the centre piece of the Hampshire Farmers’ Markets celebrations within the British Food Fortnight, which runs from 20st September until 5th October, which promotes all that is good about home grown food, encouraging shoppers to buy British local food, the value of eating fresh, in season food and how it helps the economy at the same time.
