TASTY treats, cooking classes and fresh food will all be on offer at a food festival.

Hampshire-grown products will be on sale and street theatre will be taking place at Cosham’s Food Festival on Saturday, June 25.

This year’s event, which takes place in High Street, Cosham, is themed Dig for Victory.

The theme is a throwback to the austere years of the Second World War when people were encouraged to grow their own and live off the land.

Hampshire Farmers’ Market will be following this theme by offering grown, reared, baked, bottled or pickled foods produced within the county of Hampshire or 10 miles of its borders.

Alex Handford, of Hampshire Farmers’ Markets said, ‘We’re delighted to come to Cosham for the food festival, giving people visiting a chance to sample the fine flavours of foods from local producers.

‘We also have our regular monthly markets at Southsea so we hope coming to Cosham will encourage people to visit us there as well.’

The food festival is being held in association with Portsmouth City Council and the market is open from 10am to 4pm.
