Malton Food Festival 2021, Yorkshire, UK

August 28 - August 30

Malton Food Festival

One of Yorkshire’s premier local food festivals will occur in the town of Malton from May 28 to 30, 2021. The Malton Food Festival 2021 (or Malton Food Lovers Festival to give its full title) will attract tens of thousands of foodies from across the county and elsewhere in the UK. Due to its popularity it is now held over three days.

Details of the 2021 festival are yet to be announced, but the 2019 festival featured three of the county’s Michelin-star chefs: Tommy Banks, owner of the Black Swan in Oldstead; James Mackenzie, of the Pipe and Glass Inn; and Stephen Smith, head chef at the Star Inn in Harome, as well as award-winning chef and best-selling author,Sabrina Ghayour.

Orgnisers say there will be 160 market stalls and street food vans, in addition to live music, cookery workshops and a festival fringe. Malton is described as Yorkshire’s Foodie Glastonbury – although I doubt there are many champagne and oyster bars in the Somerset mud.
