A MAJOR showcase of food and drink businesses celebrating Yorkshire produce is taking place this weekend at Tong Garden Centre.

The Big Food Tasting will highlight artisan producers from the county and their products, including breweries, bakers, oil and vinegar producers, cheesemongers, and soft drink producers.

The in-house butchers and bakers will also be on hand to share their expertise and showcase their handmade products for visitors to try.

Andrew Tyers, manager of Tong’s food hall, said: “We are excited and proud to host our third celebration of food and drink and to welcome some of our fantastic local and regional suppliers to the Food Hall.

“Over the weekend, visitors will be able to meet the makers and try many food and drink products before they buy, hopefully discovering something they have never tried before.”
