Emsworth, Bringing Home the Harvest. Emsworth British Food Fortnight 20th September – 5th October

Emsworth is delighted to be participating in this year’s British Food Fortnight, the annual celebration of British food organised by Love British Food. There is little doubt that Emsworth is a unique place, positioned at the top of Chichester Harbour. The picturesque, old fishing town would be just as happy sitting by the sea in Cornwall or even Brittany. In the main the fishing boats and its once famous oyster industry may have gone, but Emsworth, unlike so many similar communities has still managed to maintain its sense of place. There are very few small towns left on the south coast that can still offer two family owned butchers, a greengrocers and a fishmongers as well as a monthly Market Day. Add into the mix some of the area’s finest restaurants and some wonderful traditional pubs and you can see why Emsworth is cherished both by its residents and visitors alike. It’s the perfect place to celebrate British Food Fortnight.

 

There is a wonderful program of events and some highlights includes –
