There won’t be tricks but there will be plenty of treats at HECK HQ later this month, when the Bedale-based food company open the doors to its fourth farmers’ market, this time with a spooky Halloween twist. Celebrating the best of local food & drink, this month’s market, taking place on Saturday 30th October between 11am and 3pm, will also be packed with frighteningly good fun for the whole family, including the dog!
Aimed at supporting local, independent producers in and around the county, come along to browse the stalls and stock up on some delicious food and drink to take home and enjoy. Get into the spirit of things with drinks from small distillers, craft brewers and Thornborough Cider. Fill up on cakes, bakes, cheesecakes and puddings, plus coffee, eggs, cheeses, preserves and chutneys, the county’s unique Yorkshire Pudding Pies and many more.
Dress to impress because there’s a Halloween fancy dress competition for children and dogs, with prizes for the best-dressed people and pooches, plus pumpkin picking and carving, face painting and garden games for all.
For a glimpse into the future and following their recent appearance on Channel 5’s ‘This Week on the Farm’, HECK will also be offering tours of its new vertical farm and its hi-tech growing method supplying fresh basil and other herbs for the firm’s sausages and burgers.
The HECK team will be firing up the BBQ and serving a free HECK-dog for everyone on arrival. The company’s factory outlet shop will also be open, where you can stock up on tasty bangers, burgers and mince at discounted prices, and their Guy Porks special edition sausages for Bonfire night, made with pork, diced apple and a hint of black treacle.
“We’re all set for some frighteningly good fun this month at our fourth farmers’ market,” says HECK’s Elisia Watson. “We all love Halloween at HECK, so have made sure this community event is packed with tricks and treats for all ages.”
