What’s fresh, local and utterly delicious? York Farmers’ Market, which returns with stalls brimming with tasty treats this Friday.
The market will return to St Sampson’s Square on the first Friday of every month, plying its irresistible wares.
Run by the Yorkshire Farmers’ Market Group in conjunction with Make It York, it hosts traders selling locally and ethically sourced produce.

“We’re seeing an increase in people buying fresh eggs straight from the farm, especially after the success of Bake Off. Everyone wants to bake like Mary Berry!” said Julie Shearman from Church View Farm Eggs.
She predicts the market will be a tremendous success because of the quality of the produce and service.
“Our saying is that ‘we don’t have customers, we have friends who buy eggs’ and we love telling our customers about different eggs you can buy and what you can cook with them.”
City centre and markets manager Chris Price said: “This new monthly market will complement the Shambles Market as well as the new Shambles Food Court, offering hot street food to enjoy with friends.”
Yorkshire Farmers’ Markets runs similar events in Otley, Harrogate, Knaresborough and Wetherby. Director Peter Heald said the York fixture is “an opportunity to build on the superb reputation York has for its fresh market produce”.
