Middlecave Yard: More Artisan Food Production Units for Malton

The Fitzwilliam Malton Estate have announced further plans to expand the redevelopment of the picturesque North Yorkshire market town with a new food hub.

Following on from the success of Talbot Yard Food Court which is now home to a thriving community of artisan food producers, the Estate have announced plans for the redevelopment of Middlecave Yard.

Sitting on the corner of Victoria Road and Middlecave Road, planning permission for the site has recently been granted by Ryedale District Council and the project will see the distinctive farm buildings, just a few minutes’ walk from Malton’s market place, transformed into four contemporary food production and retail units.

The first phase of the project will include all the external works as well as ensuring key features within all of the buildings are preserved, such as the exposed timber beams and the traditional brickwork which add to the unique character of the site.

The internal design will be completed when new occupiers have been found, to ensure that they can be fitted out to the bespoke needs of each business.

Roddy Bushell, the Estate Manager said: “The demand for good quality space in Malton from food and drink producers and retailers is very heartening and encouragingly all the units at Talbot Yard and Navigation Wharf are now full.  Now we have planning consent for this development, there will be four more excellent units available soon.”

The Fitzwilliam Estate is looking for up and coming artisan food and drink production companies to be an integral part of Middlecave Yard’s renaissance and the search is now underway for artisan businesses from charcuterie to cheese making to be involved.
