Taste of sweet suc­cess

Middlesbrough Herald & Post - - NEWS -

A WORLD of cui­sine was on of­fer at a Bank Hol­i­day food bo­nanza.

From siz­zling street-food and ar­ti­san bak­ers, to craft brew­ers and be­spoke dis­tillers, scores of stalls took over Mid­dles­brough’s Ste­wart Park for its an­nual food fes­ti­val on Sunday.

The North­ern Dales Farmers’ Mar­ket – re­cently named one of the top 20 in the UK – held its an­nual food fes­ti­val and proved to be the big­gest one yet.

Thou­sands of food lovers flocked to the event last year and mar­ket man­ager Nigel Dav­i­son said sim­i­lar num­bers had ar­rived this year af­ter or­gan­is­ers in­creased the num­ber of stalls to more than 50. He said: “It just gets big­ger and big­ger each time – we’re very pleased. We’ve hand-picked a wide range of qual­ity lo­cal food pro­duc­ers so there’s some­thing to suit every­one.

“In the mix this time around are some superb street-food traders in­clud­ing a new­comer to the lo­cal food scene who serves up the most in­cred­i­ble Korean dumplings.”

The event also fea­tured live mu­sic, craft stalls and chil­dren’s en­ter­tain­ment and was spon­sored by Grow­ing Mid­dles­brough Lo­cal Food Net­work. It was or­gan­ised in part­ner­ship with Askham Bryan Col­lege.
