THE Food Fest of the North!

Set across the streets of Yorkshire’s Food Capital, Malton Food Lovers Festival is a celebration of Yorkshire's finest produce and cooking.

The 2021 festival is our 12th year and it's set to be the best yet. Expect artisan stalls, delicious street food, talks, tastings, celebrity chefs, demos, live music and much, much more!


A family foodie extravaganza. We're not known as Yorkshire's Foodie Glastonbury for nothing!
