MORE than 40 food and drink stalls from across the region will be at Stewart Park Farmers’ Market on Sunday for a Harvest Festival.

The annual event celebrates British Food Fortnight – a national project that shines the spotlight on the very best of British.

All the food and drink at the event on Sunday has been grown, reared or produced in North Yorkshire, Teesside and County Durham.

Nigel Davison, market manager, said: “The Harvest Festival is one of the highlights of our farmers’ market calendar.

“Everyone remembers celebrating the Harvest Festival at primary school, so what better way to highlight all that’s great about British food?

“We hand-pick all our stallholders so anyone who visits can be sure they are buying from genuine small local top quality producers.”

  • The Harvest Festival takes place at Stewart Park, Middlesbrough, on Sunday, September 30, from 9am to 2pm.
