On 9th September, Yorkshire’s Food Capital will celebrate the best of the season’s harvest as the streets of Malton welcome the finest food and drink hailing from the region. A jam-packed programme of events and activity will provide entertainment and fun for every age throughout the day, including for our younger visitors, free pirate themed theatrical workshops delivered by Malton based themed party specialists Magical Quests.
As well as plenty to eat and drink there will also be talks, tastings, live music and cooking demos from renowned local chefs including Rudding Park’s Stephanie Moon, The Talbot Hotel’s Dan Graham and Peter Neville from The Pheasant Hotel who will all be in attendance showing off their culinary skills.
At the heart of the festival is the Producer’s Market with over 80 food and drink stalls, selling delicious wares from right across Yorkshire. The streets will be lined by local buskers and in the evening, Malton based Brass Castle Brewery, gin producers Sloemotion and cider specialists Orchards of Husthwaite will be hosting the festival bar with an accompanying selection of the region’s best street food vans.
The Harvest Food Festival specialises in locally caught seafood from Yorkshire’s coastline, along with game from the North York Moors all available in the newly created ‘Game & Seafood Court’ in association with Game To Eat, the organisation dedicated to increasing the eating and enjoyment of British wild game. Also in the ‘Game & Seafood Court’ you will find butchery and cooking demos in the Taste of Game demo kitchen.
Malton’s annual Harvest Food Festival is the sister festival to the prestigious Malton Food Lovers Festival which welcomed tens of thousands of food lovers and special guests Levi Roots and Prue Leith to the North Yorkshire market town back in May. Free to enter, the Harvest Food Festival has the best of Autumn’s crop to feast upon!
