Yorkshire’s Food Capital
Malton is gaining a big reputation for food and attracting unique food producers. Some of their produce can be sampled on either the artisan or gin o’clock food tours.
2014 saw the opening of the Malton Cookery School offering many different full and half day cookery courses.
In May (Saturday 25th & Sunday 26th in 2019), Malton hosts a two day Food Lovers Festival with food stalls from around Yorkshire, delicious street food, music and cookery demonstrations.
On the second Saturday of each month (excluding January) a smaller Monthly Food Market is held in the town centre.
Malton – Market Town
Malton still retains many features from the past. There is a cattle market on Tuesdays and Fridays and a family run cinema showing most of the latest releases.
