This Nationally acclaimed annual festival brings together thousands of visitors drawn from the local community and from far and wide to celebrate watercress - the superb locally grown, delicious and versatile crop.
Alresford was voted Country Life's 'Favourite Market Town' in the South-East. So it is no surprise that the entire centre of New Alresford in Hampshire becomes a huge street festival. Hampshire Farmers' Market and others create a large food market showcasing the very best local producers and celebrity chefs will demonstrate some delicious dishes.
There will also be a large festival market with stalls selling arts, crafts, jewellery and clothing, items for house, garden and much else besides. And many of the town's shops will be open.
