As well as fantastic local food and drink at Winchester Food Festival, you will also find products to elevate your dishes, all produced by Hampshire Fare members.

Here are some you can try and buy at the festival which returns to  Winchester Cathedral’s Outer Close on July 14. 

Chefs and foodies alike love Lusso Leaf. They grow microgreens, micro herbs and edible flowers at their specialist farm in Stockbridge. Densely grown and harvested just a few days beyond germination Lusso Leaf’s “Shoots to Thrill” is perfect for adding vibrant colour and flavour impact to your plates.

Back for a second year are Pepperpot Nurseries. This family run specialist herb grower from Chawton will have an extensive range of potted herbs for sale at the Festival.

If you want to add a kick to your meal, visit the Callaloo Corner stand for Caribbean inspired homemade vegan-friendly pepper “hot” sauces. Created by founder Christine Lee Wing who wanted to recreate and share the authentic Trinidadian tastes she grew up with.

Also inspired by the flavours of her childhood is Ewelina, who launched Ewelina's Home Pantry in 2021. She uses fresh, high-quality local ingredients and traditional methods to create handcrafted wholesome preserves in the heart of the New Forest. You’ll find her vast selection from jams to chutneys on her stall.

Two&One Olive, an Anglo-Spanish family business, is on a mission to bring the healthy attributes and joy of olive oil to the British diet.
