We are looking for a suitable hot food stall to replace them.

Market of the Year award

Horsforth Farmers’ Market:  winner of the 2017 Farm Shop & Deli ‘Market of the Year’

On the 24th April 2017, at a ceremony at the NEC in Birmingham, the 2017 winners of the Farm Shop & Deli Awards were announced. Now in their fourth year, and one of the highlights of Farm Shop & Deli Show, the awards recognise the best farmers’ markets and specialist independent retailers in the UK.

The winner of this year’s coveted Market of the Year category was Horsforth Farmers’ Market.  Shortlisted entrants were chosen before the judges hit the road to secret-shop and observe undercover the award hopefuls. The judges covered the length and breadth of the country to experience first-hand the enthusiasm, array of produce and customer satisfaction on offer. Finally, after weeks of scrutiny and deliberation, the winners were selected.

At the award ceremony, speaking  about winners from all the various categories, Nigel Barden, Chairman of Judges and Food and Drink Journalist and Broadcaster, declared: “It’s a real privilege to acknowledge food and drink providers of this quality. These are passionate, enterprising, knowledgeable and diligent people.  It’s been a tough, rigorous and rewarding process for our judges”.

Receiving the award on behalf of Horsforth Farmers’ Market, Graham Fergusson thanked all those who had made possible their success: Horsforth Churches Together who are our sponsors; the stallholders who provide such excellent produce each month; Horsforth and Leeds City Councils who have supported us financially, Duncan Stow our market manager who first had the idea of a community market and whose leadership over the years has enabled us to achieve this award and, of course, our loyal customers who have supported us in large numbers since our first market over four years ago.
