Andover News - Authentic Italian Comes to Andover

From 16 – 19 July, Andover High Street will buzz with the warmth of la dolce vita as an authentic Italian Market, identifiable by its striking red, white and green stalls decorated with flags, comes to town! 

This attractive and vibrant market is guaranteed to tantalize.  Experience the flavours of parmigiano reggiano, salami, cannoli, ciabatta, nougats, biscotti, packed pastas, olives, extra virgin olive oils and much more. 

Running for four days from Wednesday, 16  July, the market provides an opportunity to sample the mouth watering tastes of Italy and take some authentic Italian ingredients home to inspire midweek suppers and weekend treats. 

The Leader of the Council, Councillor Ian Carr said, “As part of the Andover Summit  the High Street events working group was formed to bring a programme of events to the town, and in so doing encourage a more vibrant and bustling feel for the High Street.  The group has consistently delivered a series of top quality events, with many markets returning this year due to popular demand.  Medfood Italian Market is one such successful market, drawn back to Andover by the support they received last autumn.

There really is no excuse not to pop into town and stock up with store cupboard essentials and tasty treats, all in one visit!”
