Market News September 2021

 

The next Headingley Farmers Market is on Saturday 11th September our 15th birthday!

The market was one of the first very public HDT enterprises and acted as an important face for the new trust. Some of you may remember going to buy your shares there for HEART which was then still just a twinkle in the eyes of Headingley activists and new HDT members!

Since then we have faced some challenges, not least Covid and having to close for two periods. Before 2020 year we had only ever had to shut once, when the snow was so deep that we couldn’t put the stalls up and even our most loyal producers couldn’t get through. Throughout everything we have stuck to our founding ethos: the food is sold directly by the producer and it comes from within thirty to sixty miles of Headingley – though we do make allowances for Mr Johnson’s fish and Lincolnshire Poacher cheese.

Fifteen years on some of our very first stallholders are still with us: Family Kardamakis, Swillington Organic Farm, Country Markets, Bondgate Bakery and Church View Farm Eggs. Come and support them!

 

So come and celebrate with us: King and I will be playing and Melanie (of chocolate fame) is baking us a massive birthday cake.

With us this month are 

STICKEYS HONEY will be attending with their fabulous range of honey.

MELANIES CAKES  back with their delicious chocolates.

HOLY SMOKERY from Kilnsey with their range of smoked produce.

WHOLE IN THE GROUND with their different coffees and their swiss water method decaffeinated coffee.

REALLY INDIAN from Meanwood who source all their vegetables from Yorkshire will be there with their samosas, onion bhajis, pakoras and cook-in curry sauces including recipes from 6 different regions of India.

YORKSHIRE PIE BAKERY with their wide range of different flavoured pork pies made from locally sourced pork, along with their vegetarian and vegan pies.

John JOHNSON with his ever popular fresh fish will be selling fish from his van.

As usual we will have our THREE CHEESE STALLS bringing very delicious but very different types of cheeses to Headingley, LINCOLNSHIRE POACHER, CRYER AND STOTT and SQUEAKY CHEESE. They all have prize winning varieties and lots of tasters to try. Lincolnshire Poacher sell raw milk and butter from their farm as well as cheeses.

BONDGATE BAKERY from Otley will have a wide selection of all kinds of breads.

SWILLINGTON ORGANIC will bring chicken, pork, beef and lamb from their East Leeds Organic farm including their award-winning sausages. And they will be sharing their stall with Headbangers who will be selling their own tasty sausages and bacon made from Swillington pork.

ORGANIC PANTRY with a packed stall of organic vegetables.

OLIANAS with pizzas, enormous doughnuts and home-made award winning Yorkshire Pecorino Cheese and lots more.
