THE taste of Italy is coming to Steyning with the first Italia in Piazza event hosted in the town.

The real Italian food market promises an abundance of food all the way from southern Europe on Sunday.

The event has been organised by Steyning and District Community Partnership, in association with Horsham District Council.

Reina Alston, one of the directors of the partnership, said: “We are looking forward to this first Italian Market and hope that it may become a regular feature in our calendar of events for Steyning and the district.

“New ideas to create variety and interest in our town are always welcome.

“It will attract both new faces and local residents to come and enjoy not only the market, but our superb eateries and Sunday-opening shops.

“We are confident that this small ‘taste’ of our area, will ensure visitors return to see and sample more of our district in the future”.

The Italian market will be offering products such as meats, cheeses, olives, pasta, olive oil, focaccia and more.

Reina added: “Steyning is looking forward to welcoming a little bit of Italy to the High Street on Sunday. No need to cross the Channel, just jump in your car and head for Steyning.

“Authentic, enthusiastic Italian stall holders will be ready to share their infinite knowledge of their homeland food with you.”

The market takes place on Sunday from 10am to 4pm in Steyning High Street.
