For most of our everyday needs, shopping locally saves us money and time in the long-run; we certainly waste less food and don't tend to buy things that we don't need. Plus, it's good for the soul to get out and about and be served with a smile!Hester McDonald, Emsworth Resident
"A fantastic activity really well organised and friendly people. It is great that the eggs are spread around the town a good way to notice shops and places may not necessarily see. As a new visitor a great way to see a new town. Wonderful farmers market and great decorating cakes for free! Would definitely pay more feel like it wasn't enough."Jenna Homan, mum of Harry aged 3 from East Wittering. Comments on Easter Market Day and Egg Hunt,
"We rate ourselves as foodies so we love visiting Emsworth. A relaxing walk along the coast, lunch in a superb pub, restaurant or café, and then food shopping in a traditional butchers, greengrocers and fishmongers - what could possibly be nicer."Debbie Vodden, East Hampshire resident
