Taste of sweet success
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.
