Wine, apple juice and bilberry fudge on offer at Saltburn event
FUDGE made with Moors-picked bilberries and apples picked and squeezed by the allotment society will be among the goods at Saltburn Farmers Market this month.
With September a key month in the growing calendar, organisers say there will be lots on offer at the event, held in the station’s portico on September 14.
Organiser Lorna Jackson, of Real Meals Delicatessen, said: “It’s a great time to take advantage of the ease of eating seasonably and make the choice not to go to the supermarket to buy something grown thousands of miles away.
“You can also know that you are supporting a self-employed person in their pursuit of earning an honest living.”
Wines made from matured summer fruits will also be on sale at the event, which takes place from 9am to 2pm.
Alongside produce, several meat sellers and game dealers will be at the market as well as homemade cakes, beer brewed from local microbrewery, herbs and plants grown in market gardens and honey derived from the nectar of the fabulous North York Moors heather.
Ms Jackson said she was happy to get back into the swing of the farmers' market (which runs in the train station portico from March to December) after last month's hit Food Festival.
Held in early August, the first event of its kind in the town attracted more than 20,000 visitors.
"It was a wonderful day that surely won't be forgotten very soon," said Ms Jackson, adding: "I have been asked countless times about next year's festival - I think I need a bigger space to fit everyone in more comfortably.”
