Why not sample quality fresh local food and drink with a visit to one of these farmers' markets? Enjoy the friendly atmosphere and have a chat with the passionate people behind your food. Many also include craft makers and artists showcasing their beautiful handcrafted work.

Depending on the season, you'll find a wide range of homemade produce, sometimes organic, from lamb, pork, beef, poultry and game, to fruit and vegetables, beer and cider, pies, cakes, biscuits, artisan bread, honey, jams, oils, chutneys, sauces, soups, chocolate and more. For the gardening enthusiast, you'll often find a range of herbs, plants and shrubs too.

As well as enjoying great tasting produce, by buying direct you'll be helping the local economy and farming communities which maintain much of the outstanding landscape in the North York Moors.

Can't wait until the next market? Luckily you'll find many market towns hold traditional weekly markets and Country Markets and plenty of farm shops on your doorstep selling fresh produce, and usually stocking other Yorkshire food and drink, and tasty treats too.
