A Celebration of Watercress

A Celebration of Watercress

This weekend sees the launch of the UK watercress season and the return of the ever popular watercress festival at Alresford, Hampshire, attracting thousands of visitors to to celebrate all things watercress.

Every year on the third Sunday in May the streets of this Georgian town are closed to traffic to transform the town into a family-friendly FREE festival.

From street markets, food & drink stalls, cookery demonstrations with renown world class chefs, the Hampshire Farmers Market, a "Kids Zone" featuring Falcon Displays and Circus Skills, there really is something for everyone.

For many the highlight of the day is Watercress Eating Championship which takes place at 15:00 on the main stage - a must see event guaranteed to be a show!

The festival opens at 10:00 and closes at 16:00, with the streets of New Alresford being returned to normal within a few hours.

Alresford Watercress Festival is a not-for-profit enterprise raising money for many local groups and charities.

Come and see us there, eat some watercress and try some of our fresh wasabi!

Did you know The Wasabi Company started its life from watercress?

We grow our wasabi in disused Victorian watercress beds to mimic the streams on the Japanese mountainside and share the same site in Dorset with our sister business The Watercress Company.
