BAILDON FARMERS' MARKET
Baildon Farmers' Market began in Autumn 2012 and takes place on the fourth Saturday of each month (excepting January) from 9am until 1pm in the lower Ian Clough car park (map here). The project was successfully established thanks to the hard work and commitment of a group of local residents with support and funding from the Town Council. The market is a Town Council service which is now entirely self-financing and relies heavily on the tremendous hard work and continued commitment of the volunteers.
The market has been embraced by Baildon shoppers who love its great variety of local, seasonal produce. You can buy fresh, locally produced food from fantastic Yorkshire suppliers, including award-winning pies, sour-dough bread, cheese from the Dales and Yorkshire chorizo.
You'll find fresh and smoked fish from Whitby, prize-winning honey, herbs, plants and oils, locally grown fruit and vegetables, jams and pickles and venison and game. You'll also see seasonal stalls like strawberries, rhubarb and asparagus.
Baildon Farmers Market is an event for the whole community. Shoppers get to meet the producers and growers of the food they buy, taste free samples and even buy a Baildon Farmers Market bag! There's always live music and fun for the kids with a different bingo trail every month (prizes guaranteed!)
The market is run by the Market Manager Julie Bower and supported by a team of hard-working volunteers including residents, members of Baildon Belles WI and business representatives.
The market has its own website.
