Get ready for a fun-filled foodie weekend as the spring Malton Food Lovers Festival is almost here.
Self-described as ‘Yorkshire’s Foodie Glastonbury’, the three-day extravaganza is taking place across the Queen’s Jubilee weekend on Friday 3 to Sunday 5 June 2022 at the Market Place in Malton.
There will be over 100 food stalls, delicious demos, chats with celebrated local chefs, meet and greets, live music, children’s activities and more.
The festival is free to enter.
New to this year’s festival is archaeologist and University of York professor, Dr Penny Bickle – who will be transporting visitors back in time with her demonstration on ‘prehistoric cheese.’
Plus, foodie fans have the chance to meet The Guardian’s acclaimed food journalist and author, Felicity Cloake, who will be taking to the main stage for a book signing and Q&A.
There will also be plenty on offer for younger family members too, as Be Amazing Arts will be in attendance with a series of children’s activities and workshops over the weekend.
It’s been announced that Malton-based business Yorkshire Baker is sponsoring the festival’s main stage this year. They will be joining forces with Malton cookery school The Cook’s Place to run pop-ups and demonstrations across the weekend.
Also sponsoring the festival is Dutch Barn Orchard Vodka – the new spirit created by Ellers Farm Distillery, located in Stamford Bridge.
Tom Naylor-Leyland, director of Visit Malton, says: “We are delighted to have two fantastic Yorkshire brands join us for the June instalment of the Malton Food Lovers Festival.
“Their generous support ensures the success of the event, which sees thousands of visitors flock to our wonderful town to sample the delights of our local businesses and stalls, as well as an action-packed Main Stage!”
