It’s back. It’s big. It’s better than ever. Foodies rejoice, because this year’s food and drink market is a gastronomic gala. There are a whopping sixty-seven chalets offering a dizzying array of delights, including plenty of fresh, local products – many with a rhubarb twist.

Traditional favourites (think hearty pies and yummy cakes) rub shoulders with quirkier, more contemporary concoctions. Rhubarb and chilli jam, anyone?

This year’s markets sees the introduction of a brand new element: arts and crafts. With ten gazebos (find them at Trinity Walk), visitors can choose from a huge range of charming, unusual and independent products, including handmade jewellery, homewares, art – and even rhubarb bath bombs!

The markets have spread like rhubarb roots across the city centre, with stall holders on the Precinct and Northgate, as well as the Bull Ring, Teal Street, Teal Way and right up to Trinity Walk. You can’t miss it – and trust us, you won’t want to.

2020 also sees the return to the food and drink market of Deliciously Yorkshire. #RhubarbFest veterans, the festival wouldn’t be complete without them.

This year, they’ve got five whole gazebos showcasing the best culinary fare that God’s own county has to offer. Look for their distinctive green and black livery in front of the entrance to The Ridings Shopping Centre.
