Food Events & Farmers Markets in Harrogate & District

The Harrogate District has a vast array of places to eat and drink and is home to a rich rural heritage in the surrounding farmland famed for its delicious produce.

So it should come as no surprise that the area hosts may great food and drink events. We certainly know how to celebrate everything foodie…and with whatever tipple takes your fancy.

The BBC Good Food Show is a staple of the Harrogate culinary diary along with the popular twice yearly Foodies Festival.  The Food Hall at the Great Yorkshire Show is always popular with visitors, offering the chance to sample some outstanding treats from across the four counties of Yorkshire.

There are now a range of festivals offering street food, world food and locally produced food; indeed there’s something to suit every taste bud. 

Themed dinners are popular throughout the year. What better place to experience a murder mystery dinner than in the town where Agatha Christie was found after disappearing for ten days?

Or you can dine to the accompaniment of a tribute band or take advantage of the various seasonal celebrations that take place during the year.

The Harrogate District is home to a number of locally produced beers and it is therefore no surprise that there is a regular programme of beer and real ale festivals across the district and throughout the year.

If you prefer gin (and why not in Slingsby Gin’s hometown?) you might enjoy the Gin Festival where every kind of Juniper infused delight can be found.

The Ribston Pippin apple features in the Harrogate District coat of arms and it is worth looking out for cider festivals when autumn approaches.

The apple is so popular in Harrogate that we have two Apple Days: one in September which is the traditional end to the season at Newby Hall and one in October when attention is focussed on RHS Harlow Carr.

So let your taste buds get the best from your visit with the fantastic food and drink events below.
