Saltburn Farmer's Market - World Cup Special
Inspired by England kicking-off their World Cup campaign against the USA on the same day, stallholders at Saltburn's bustling Farmers' Market are bringing out the bunting for a World Cup Special this Saturday along with a clutch of brand new World Cup treats.
Market co-ordinator Lorna Jackson said: "Saltburn Farmers Market has a real community ethos - a day for everyone to get into the spirit of things - and what's better at bringing people together than England having a fantastic World Cup? So we thought we'd get stuck in and give our June Market a real footballing flavour to help set the scene."
Standing alongside the Market's ever-popular mix of organic meat, game, fish, cheese, organic fruit and vegetables, wine, pies, cakes and craft works, Lorna highlighted some of the stallholders' special World Cup wonders.
Lorna said: "Fancy Fudge love Peter Crouch and have created 'Crouch' s Cranberry Fudge,' a tall fancy white chocolate fudge, with a cranberry topping forming the cross of St George.
Real Meals are going straight to the top with a Fabio Capello World Cup Pie. That's a Veal and Ham Pie to you and me - a tradition amongst Italians - and definitely something to munch your way through while watching the match.
Cottage Cakes are making a special 'Rooney's Raspberry Tart,' and Ledston Game have come up with a gorgeous Game & Chilli Sausage - definitely one for the bbq!
And, if we're looking at the cup itself, Saltburn based Dragonfly Bakery have come up with a top bunch of World Cup cupcakes - a bag of your 'favourite four' cup cakes tied in World Cup ribbons.
Basically, we reckon the more you eat, the better chance England have of winning. Call it a good luck charm, but that'll be our motto for the day and we're sticking with it," said Lorna.
"As ever, we'll have a great family atmosphere, and we're looking forward to another fantastic day. So hop on the train to Saltburn and join the fun."
Saltburn Farmers' Market 'World Cup Special' takes place in Saltburn Portico, near Saltburn Railway Station, between 9am-3pm on Saturday June 12.
