The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) minister said: "It is really exciting to see the interest everybody has in where they live and it's things like the Wight Marque which means people can trust what they're eating."

The County Show also featured livestock showing, equestrian events, a charity pole climb, classic cars, and gundog, falconry and tractor displays.
