Well what a year it’s been – 3 new markets from a standing start and more planned for 2016!
The Market Managers Ltd started life less than two years ago with the aim of promoting the best artisan food and drink from around Yorkshire and the North, and helping local food businesses sell direct to the public.
Now shoppers in Scarborough, Bedale and Alwoodley, Leeds can buy delicious fresh food and drink at local monthly markets right on their doorstep.
A huge thank you to all our fantastic traders for supporting us and making it possible – we hope you agree that braving storm force winds and driving rain has definitely been worth it!
All markets are going well and in February due to growing demand, Scarborough Food Fair will take place fortnightly.
Our thanks to Scarborough Borough Council, Bedale Town Council and the Lord Darcy Alwoodley for their great support in getting things off the ground – and we’re enormously grateful to Malton Amenity CIC for letting us operate Malton Monthly Food Market on their behalf again next year.
We’ll be taking a break now for (most of) January but in the meantime here are those all-important 2016 dates for your diary.
