Get to know more about Fitzwilliam Malton Estate…
Malton is one of Yorkshire’s most renowned foodie destinations built around its famous local produce, food shopping and monthly food markets. The newly-opened Malton Cookery School also offers visitors a chance to get to grips with Yorkshire game, seafood and baking. Malton has an array of traditional food shops with several butchers, grocers, delis and a fishmonger.
The town also has a growing community of ‘Made In Malton’ artisan producers with award-winning beer, ice cream, bread, coffee and even a fresh pasta maker! All to be visited at Talbot Yard Food Court.
Malton’s reputation for its excellent food and drink offering earned it the reputation of ‘Yorkshire’s Food Capital’. Indeed it was Antonio Carluccio, godfather of Italian cuisine, who having visited the town several times first coined the phrase.
The Malton area includes rare breed cattle and pigs, the famous Ginger Pig Farm is only a matter of miles away, along with lobster and crab in huge numbers, grouse, pheasant, partridge, venison, hare and rabbit from the North York Moors. There’s great local cheese-makers, artisan bakers, chutneys, breweries, Yorkshire spirits and much, much more. Malton even has Britain’s most northerly commercial vineyard in the UK just a stone’s throw away.

Add to this the famous annual Malton Food Lovers Festival, the monthly Food Markets, the Talbot Hotel, Malton Brasserie and Wentworth Restaurant. The “Made In Malton” project is bringing amazing producers into town and we are very proud of our traditional food shops.
Malton is proud to call itself Yorkshire’s Food Capital and has big plans for the future!
