Stewart Park farmers' market this sunday 23rd July

Melting marshmallows, gourmet parmos, heavenly hummus and curry bread are just some of the delights on offer at the popular Stewart Park Farmers’ Market this Sunday. (July 23)

There are more than 30 food stalls at the Middlesbrough event, selling a wide range of food, all of it grown, reared, or produced on Teesside, North Yorkshire or County Durham.

One of the guest stalls at this month’s market is Helen’s Hummus, a new business that’s already proving popular with customers.

Thornaby mum Helen Russell, will be offering several flavours of homemade hummus including roast red pepper, jalapeno, red pesto and green olive.

The market is also welcoming guest stall Urban Soup, an Ingleby Barwick company that creates a range of homemade soups including pea and mint, carrot and coriander, leek and potato, and celery.

Visitors can also tuck into loaves of flavoured bread from Labour of Loaf, spice mixes that’ll knock your socks off from The Twisted Chilli, gourmet scotch eggs from The Clucking Pig Company, award-winning pies from Middlesbrough company Pie Jackers, and fantastic free range eggs fresh from the former farm home of Captain Cook in Great Ayton.

There’s also plenty of choice for anyone with food intolerances including pies and scones from The Gluten Free Food Company, gluten free desserts from Just Desserts, and vegan and vegetarian goodies from Mind for Cooking.

The event is run by Northern Dales Farmers Market in partnership with Askham Bryan College.

Nigel Davison, market manager, said: “July is Indie Retail Month, a campaign to encourage shoppers to buy local and support small independent businesses. Our stallholders are all local family businesses who produce some of the finest quality food you’ll find anywhere - between them they’ve amassed an impressive collection of regional and national awards. The Stewart Park Farmers’ Market on Sunday is the perfect opportunity for anyone who’s not tried local food before to visit us and find out for themselves why more and more people are adding local food to their shopping lists.”
