Markets for the Yorkshire Foodie

Eating in Yorkshire?

The best food markets throughout the region this summer from the fat food club.

Hot on the heels of Malton Food Lovers Festival last month, food markets in Yorkshire are teeming with talent, fresh produce and artisan delights. Each one packing some serious flavours, locally sourced food has never tasted so good. Here is the definitive guide to eating in Yorkshire this summer.

Kirkstall Abbey

On the last weekend of the month, the cloisters at Kirkstall Abbey host some of the finest produce around. Saturday serves up outstanding food and drink whilst Sunday will sell the same alongside local crafts. Checkout The Yummy Yank (instagram @theyummyyank) specialising in American desserts whilst award winning Market Wraps Allotment (twitter @marketwraps) serve up food filled Yorkshire pudding wraps.

Malton food market

Every 2nd Saturday of the month, head to Malton in North Yorksire for its monthly Food Market. Cooking demos to live music, foodies can explore a market of fresh local produce. In the words of Antonio Carluccio, Malton is taking the crown at being Yorkshires very own food capital. Check @welovemalton on twitter for more!

Peddler night market

Peddler night market in Sheffield sets its stalls out on the 7th and 8th of July and then again in on the first weekends in August and September. Showcasing some of the regions best, expect street food, craft beer music and cocktails. Everything here is hip, everything refreshingly trendy. Geared up for evenings, expect not to be short of great atmosphere in its cobbled courtyard and industrial warehouse. See for more on this great festival
