Malton Monthly Food Market Keeps It In The Family.

Malton Food Festival 041113

9:54am 12th April 2014

Malton’s April Market will be the biggest yet with over 40 stalls selling the finest food and drink, and to celebrate the arrival of spring it’s to be an entirely outdoor event.

Moreover, James Martin’s right-hand man will be showing off his Michelin-starred skills at the food market, which trades from 9am to 3pm on today.

Jake Jones, sous-chef at the Talbot Hotel’s James Martin Restaurant, will perform a spectacular chef demo at 11:30 this morning.

And it will be a family affair as for the first time the market will be having not one but two chefs who will create dishes to tempt the taste buds of visitors.

Jake’s father, Andrew Jones, head chef at Hovingham’s Worsley Arms Hotel, will be enthralling the crowds with a second exciting demo in the afternoon.

Before working elbow to elbow with James Martin, Jake worked at Michelin-starred establishments including L’Enclume in Cartmel, Cumbria, The Black Swan in Oldstead, and The Star at Harome, both in Yorkshire.

Jake, who recently cooked for James Martin at a private dinner for 21 people, said: “I am looking forward to doing a live demo at April’s Monthly Food Market right here in Yorkshire’s Food Capital!”

And Jake’s father Andrew said: “As head chef at the Worsley Arms, I firmly believe in using local produce, and my demo menu will reflect that, including local beef, lamb and fish, along with fresh locally-sourced vegetables.

“I also hope to do two sweets with a seasonal theme, so everyone’s palate should be catered for!”

Additionally to all the stalls there will be live music from Malton’s White Star Band, along with free entry, free parking and a free tea or coffee with every bakery purchase.

Market organiser Tom Naylor-Leyland added: “Malton Monthly Food Market is one of Yorkshire’s most renowned food markets with the freshest local produce.

“It is popular with all those who care about where their food is sourced and is loved by local foodies, chefs and keen amateur cooks.”

The rest of the Malton Monthly Food Market dates are: Saturday 14th June; Saturday 12th July; Saturday 9th August; Saturday 13th September; Saturday 11th October; Saturday 8th November and Saturday 13th December.

The market will not be held in May due to the Food Lovers Festival being held in the town on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th May.
