A FARMERS MARKET & MOTTISFONT DAFFODILS

Sunday 05th April 2020

Leap into spring and have a great day out! Enjoy a coffee or early lunch break at Romsey Farmers Market. Located on the famous River Test, Romsey is one of Hampshire’s most historic market towns with a charter granted by King Henry 1 allowing a market to be held every Sunday. Hampshire Farmers’ Markets brings fabulous produce to nine towns and cities across the county each and every month. Showcasing the best of what Hampshire has to offer, all of our stallholders are the producers; small businesses based in rural areas growing and rearing their own to bring to customers. Next, we visit Mottisfont to discover stories of creativity, conflict, love and loss in a house full of surprises. Originally founded as an Augustinian priory in 1201, the house has seen a number of transformations over the last 800 years, shaped by its many and varied owners. Now it reflects the life and passions of Mottisfont’s fascinating last owner, society hostess and arts patron Maud Russell. Mottisfont’s riverside gardens burst into life in spring, with delightful displays of daffodils and narcissi. Thousands of mixed, naturalising bulbs provide delicious splashes of cream and yellow colour across the grounds, with drifts gathering beneath Mottisfont’s giant veteran trees.
