On Saturday, we took Tea Box to Hovingham, a most delightful, unspoilt village on the edge of the Howardian Hills halfway between Malton and Helmsley and about 20 minutes north of York.
There is a market here from February through to December on the first Saturday in the month, with around 30 stalls in and around the village hall, plus a wonderful community cafe. The bacon rolls and mugs of tea were just perfect for this blustery, showery morning.
So on this bright spring one, we made our first visit as a stallholder to this award winning village market, which is very well run by volunteers on a not-for-profit basis. 100% of its profits go directly towards funding & supporting local community groups.
It was great to meet people who enjoyed our teas, and also the lovely local producers who had stalls promoting local and fresh healthy produce, arts and crafts, and products.
Just take a look below, and yes, I came back with lots of goodies!
Roost coffee, a family run coffee roastery from Malton
Vidavilli, based in North Yorkshire with the most amazing gluten free soups and biscuits.
ButterBees, Yorkshire hand-rolled butter.
Staal Smokehouse from Beverley, with smokey and tantalising fish, chicken and duck. Watch this space as I plan to visit Justin soon and see how it all happens.
And so much more, just come along and see for yourself on 2nd April!
