We hope that you can join our Big Food Tasting event

On 15th and 16th September we’re celebrating local produce by hosting a Big Food Tasting weekend in our Food Hall.

The free event takes place just a week before British Food Fortnight begins and will shine the spotlight on the artisan producers from the region who work hard to create outstanding products.

Suppliers on Saturday 15th include Wold Top Brewery; Holmfirth’s healthy flavoured oils and vinegars by Yorkshire Drizzle; Marrds Marinades; Naylor’s Brewery; Lottie Shaw and Huddersfield’s Fruity Tipples. On Sunday 16th, visitors can enjoy tastings from new suppliers Stephenson's Bakery and Mr Fitzpatrick vintage cordials plus others including Michael Lee Fine Cheeses, Isaac Poad Brewery and Hider Foods.

On both days, members of our in house butchery and bakery teams will be on hand to share their expertise, hints and tips whilst showcasing some of their hand made produce for visitors to try.

Food Hall manager, Andrew Tyers said: “We are excited and proud to host our third celebration of food and drink and to welcome some of our fantastic local and regional suppliers to the Food Hall.

“Over the weekend, visitors will be able to meet the makers and try many food and drink products before they buy, hopefully discovering something they have never tried before.”

The Big Food Tasting event starts at 11am on both days.

British Food Fortnight is a national celebration of British food and drink that is held annually to coincide with harvest festival. The aim of the fortnight is to raise awareness of the benefits of buying and eating from the “home produced British larder.”
