Celebrating all that is great about local produce, Farnham Feast of Food, which runs from Saturday September 18 to Saturday October 2, brings with it top chefs, food crawls, country markets and much more. Here, we pick out ten of the highlights



1 Kicking off Farnham Feast of Food, and running until the close on Saturday October 2, the Great British Food Crawl will see 15 establishments in and around Farnham all offering a three-course British meal for just 15!


2 There are plenty of great places to visit in the area to help work up an appetite Wrecclesham is the home of Farnham Pottery, and both Rowledge and Dockenfield border the ancient Alice Holt Forest.


3 Held in the Farnham United Reformed Church in South Street, Farnham Country Market offers a variety of quality vegetables, eggs and honey, and a good selection of home-baked foods and preserves. The market takes place every Friday morning from 9.30am to 10.30am.


4 As the festival continues into its second weekend, a range of decadent desserts wait to be devoured on the Great British Food Crawl. The Holly Bush at Frensham, Borellis in Farnham town centre and Kennedys in Bentley, which opened at the beginning of the month, all offer a real treat for anyone with a sweet tooth.


5 On the morning of Sunday September 26, experience fresh local produce at its best from delicious biscuits and cakes to crisp vegetables and mouth-watering fruit, to a superb selection of meat, eggs and pies, at the monthly farmers market in Central car park.


6 Continuing the British theme, the Crawl carries on into the working week. Experience some traditional classic recipes at Andersons Restaurant in the town centre, The Spotted Cow in Lower Bourne and The Lobster Pot and The Alfred, both situated in Upper Hale.


7 Ham, egg and chips as a starter and a taste plate of desserts are just a couple of the intriguing dishes at the Pride of the Valley Hotel as the Crawl moves to Churt on the eve of Farnham Food Festival.


8 The Feast is set to finish on Saturday October 2, when over 40 local companies and producers will form the Food Festival in Castle Street, offering a variety of products to sample on the spot or take home and devour.


9 And kids can get involved, too! There will be a make your own smoothie drop-in workshop at the festival so they can get their five a day and learn about healthy eating.


10 Plus, learn top tips from local chefs providing cookery demonstrations throughout the day at the festival. The chefs, including representatives from Borellis, Loch Fyne and The Mulberry, will show off their culinary skills on-site. In addition, Steve Drake, head chef of Michelin star establishment Drakes Restaurant in Ripley, will also be joining in.
