HEADINGLEY FARMERS’ MARKET SATURDAY 14th Oct 2017 (2nd Saturday of the month)

September turned out to be a lively Market helped along by splendid music from King and I. We had dancing on the path at one point so the rain did not seem to dampen spirits! We did have rain but we also had sunshine and plenty of shoppers. 12 year old Raffy – no stranger to the Market as he can be seen most months on Olianas stall helping to sell his Dad’s lovely Italian produce – caught the atmosphere on camera. Check out his Market film on Raffy_vlogs – he visits all the stalls (including his Dad’s) to give us a flavour of how varied the stalls are and how beautifully presented their produce is. YORKSHIRE PIE BAKERY enjoyed their first Headingley Market and will be with us again in October along with 23 other stalls filling the Rose Garden.


BACKGARDEN BLOOMS with be there again with their lovely bouquets of flowers. MELANIES CHOCOLATE will be back with their yummy, beautifully presented chocolates as will RELIANCE with their delicious salamis and chorizo all made in Leeds. Also BEALES STRAWBERRIES will be back with their last taste of summer!


YORKSHIRE PIE BAKERY with their wide range of different flavoured pork pies made from locally sourced pork. They are replacing Jane Boocock’s popular stall as she is no longer able to attend our markets. So look out for this new stall – we are making it easy for you by placing the new pie stall in the old pie stall spot!!

We hope another new regular starting in October will be OXCLOSE FARM from Wetherby bringing VENISON and a selection of game. They also have their own smoke house so do check out their smoked products. And again to make it easy for you to find them we are placing them in the old venison stall spot!!

John JOHNSON will be there with his ever popular fresh fish.

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 (formerly YORKSHIRE DAMA CHEESE). They all have prize winning varieties and lots of tasters to try. Please note that Yorkshire Dama Cheese may have changed their name to Squeaky Cheese but they still sell the very same award winning Halloumi cheese. Check out their website which tells the fascinating story of their move from Syria to Yorkshire. Razan is now becoming quite famous – not only did she feature on ‘The Bottom Line’ on Radio 4 but on August 14th she also appeared on BBC 2 in Nadia’s Kitchen!! Do seek out her stall and ask her about her delicious recipes which featured on the programme. Don’t forget Lincolnshire Poacher sell raw milk and butter from their farm as well as cheeses.

Our monthly game for the kids is becoming more and more popular. We make up a different game every month – always fun to do and everyone gets a small prize. Come to the Headingley Development Trust (HDT) Stall to join in.

The HDT Stall has lots of information about events in Headingley. If you are not already a member of HDT you can give your support to the many local projects it runs by becoming a member for £5. The stall also sells the red Farmers’ Market shoulder bags for £4 each.

Don’t forget your recycling- egg boxes, jars and bottles. You can also get refills of olive oil from Yannis’s stall.

We do not sell hot food and drinks at the Market as there are lots of cafes in Headingley. Why not have a coffee or lunch at HEART Café on nearby Bennett Rd. Like the Farmers’ Market it is an HDT project so please support it.

We look forward to seeing you, your friends and family 9-12.30 on Saturday 14th October 2017 at the Rose Garden, Headingley LS6 3JJ.
