HECK, the North Yorkshire sausage specialists are starting a new Farmer’s Market near Bedale this Saturday. They say they want to celebrate North Yorkshire’s independent food and drink producers.
And if you skip breakfast before turning up, no worries, everyone who comes along gets a free HECK hotdog on arrival.
Taking place at HECK HQ in Kirklington, local produce will be available from a range of market stalls, including cheese, chutneys and charcuterie from The Truckle Cheese Company, Potters Eggs, Thornborough Cider and sweet treats from Cake Bake & Pops, A Go-Go Puddings and Gallone’s ice cream.
HECK will also be running its pop-up shop that launched in May, where people can stock up on bangers, burgers and mince, including range best-sellers at discounted prices and special edition flavours usually the reserve of county shows and not available in the supermarkets.
HECK co-founder Andrew Keeble. said: “We wanted to get behind our local community and showcase the outstanding independent producers in and around the area,
“Our factory shop has been really popular and the site where it’s based has a good amount of outside space, so we thought let’s add to this and bring together other producers into a regular community market where we can come together and meet the people behind some of this great food and drink.
“If there’s anything the past 18 months has taught us, it’s the importance of community and looking out for each other, and we want to celebrate this, but still in a safe and socially distanced way.”
