Festival fuels a passion for keeping produce local
1:00pm Wednesday 10th October 2012 in News
Food producers will be spreading their love of all things local at the Wantage Autumn Festival.
Local butchers and bakers will rub shoulders with beer brewers from Berkshire and the Bothy vineyard at Frilford Heath.
Organiser Mim Norvell, of Sustainable Wantage, said: “Local food is my passion, and this is making people aware of their local producers and celebrating them.
“You are keeping money in the local community. You are not just doing producers good, you are doing good for the whole community. The benefits just go on and on.”
The festival is on Saturday, October 20, between 2pm and 6pm at King Alfred’s East Site, Springfield Road.
Adult entry costs £2, while children are free.
