Yorkshire Food: York food festival and other delights

Fan of food? Go show, we’ve got it covered!

Yorkshire is a hub of food and farming: with incredible ingredients, producers and chefs, the area is often referred to as England’s panty or the breadbasket of the country. North Yorkshire’s strength is at the grass roots of food and farming. No pun intended…

The region is awash with farmers’ markets, food festivals and agricultural shows. Year-round shoppers can interact with the people who produce some of the finest food around, hands on. The market town of Malton is building an awesome reputation as the food capital of the area. From summer food festivals to weekly markets and James Martin’s cooking at the Talbot Hotel, there’s something for everyone.

This month is no different.

Head into York between Friday 19th and Sunday 28th September for the York Food Festival and “Scoff and quaff” your way round the city.

A daily specialist market is being held in St Sampson’s Square packed with fantastic foodie treats brought to you by producers from around the local area. Fresh meats from the Ryedale countryside, authentic French macaroons made within the city walls, beers, pies, pastries and more – are you hungry yet?

If an enjoyable evening is on the cards then look no further than the Three Wine Men, including TV’s Oz Clarke, who will be wine tasting near the Minster. Or enjoy a three course meal at Bar Convent, where the Sisters will look after you with fantastic food and specially selected wines in England’s oldest working convent.

One thing is assured, the York Food Festival is bound to wow every taste bud and we’re incredibly fortunate to be within such easy reach of the festivities. Eating some fantastic fayre, bring bagful’s home and then settling down to savour the flavour amongst Wayside Lakes’ stunning surroundings. What could be better?
