*Saturday 3rd March 9:00 – 2:30pm*
Return of the brilliant new addition to the Town’s foodie agenda
Stephanie Moon, Chef Consultant at Rudding Park and star in the next round of BBC Two’s “Great British Menu” will be exclusively demonstrating some of her latest dishes, and visitors will be able to interact with her to discover her successful cooking secrets.
After the first ever Malton Food Lovers Market was declared a resounding success, the organisers have announced that this high quality, local indoor market, will be held again on Saturday March 3rd 2012 in the Milton Rooms, right in the centre of the town’s market place.
This brand new event was officially opened by local and nationally known journalists, Selina Scott, who is a champion of local producers and passionate about supporting quality food and drink. Well over 2000 foodies came to buy from the 30 plus stalls in November.
For the second indoor Market there is a new layout allowing the enthusiastic crowd to have more room to talk to the producers and to move around the Milton Rooms, and be assured of a warm, dry visit, and importantly, free entry and free parking.
The fabulous environment created by the stall holders and their produce really marks this market out as real quality. There is an impressive choice of rare breed meats, hams, breads and cakes, chocolates and biscuits, organic vegetables, honeys, chutneys, local cheeses, sloe drinks, oils, herbs and much more.
Stephanie Moon will be demonstrating on the Milton Room stage which will allow room for many foodie spectators and eager amateur cooks to see and learn.
The very popular Tasting Table run by Malton Relish with Sophie Legard and her Team will have a selection of Crab Cakes, Scotch Quails Eggs wrapped in local Black Pudding, Potted Duck with local Rhubarb, Spring Onion Omelettes and Rhubarb & Custard buns.
Skerry Hall Farm, home to the pedigree Dexter Cattle run by Alan and Jan Adams on the edge of the North York Moors, will be taking a stall again to sell their quality slow-maturing traditionally reared beef. They came to the first Food Lovers Market and say: “The Market last year attracted so many people, with a very tempting array of good food. It gave us very high visibility and with so many new and returning customers, we almost sold out!”
Now a regular event for those who appreciate quality, locally produced food and drink, this indoor market will bring locals and visitors into the town for a real foodie treat.
The regular indoor Food Lovers Markets and the annual Malton Food Lovers Festival are both organised by Malton CIC, a community interest company.
