The first ever Real Food Ilkley Market was on Sunday 6th March 2016, and since then it has grown in both size and popularity. It takes place on the first Sunday of every month (excluding January) and is located on South Hawkesworth Street next to Ilkley’s main car park and behind the Black Hat. It’s only a couple of minutes walk from the train station, or if you’re visiting by car you should be able to find a free parking spot if you drive around a bit, or you can just park in the Ilkley car park. The car park is 20p for 30 minutes, 60p for an hour, or £1.20 for 2 hours.
The market is open from 10am-3pm, but I’d recommend getting there early! Below you can see a selection of some of the produce on offer at the market. 😀
Award winning organic olive oil from Sicily. Try some of the bread and olive oil samples – so tasty!
Artisan cheese from Yorkshire and further afield – perfect if you’re crackers about cheese!
Delicious cream liqueurs, made from the finest Yorkshire ingredients.
Brilliant independent craft bakery in Saltaire.
Freshly made treats, perfect for taking on a picnic.
Flavoursome Malaysian chilli paste, certain to liven up any dish.
Handmade organic and raw 100% cacao chocolate.
This Leeds based artisan bakery provides the most excellent sourdough bread.
Mouth-wateringly good truffles, perfect to give as a gift (to yourself).
Recently taken over by Ilkley Community Enterprise Ltd, you’ll be able to get these lovely chutneys and jams in the Outside the Box Cafe.
Organic veg from North Yorkshire- they also have a delivery service of veg boxes! Fifi was more interested in the Tyler James dog biscuits!
This lovely pet shop in Ilkley provided a bowl of treats and water for the day! 🐶
So, there we have it! The Ilkley Real Food Market is on the first Sunday of the month, and I go most months so this page will be kept updated with information about new stall holders 🙂 See you there!
