Tong Garden Centre
A major showcase of food and drink businesses is set to celebrate Yorkshire produce as Tong Garden Centre plans an event in its Food Hall.
Tong’s Big Food Tasting weekend will take place a week before British Food Fortnight begins.
It will shine a spotlight on the artisan producers from the region creating great products.
The two day event on 15th and 16th September will feature different producers over the weekend.

Tong Garden Centre food festival

Food Hall manager, Andrew Tyers said: “We’re excited and proud to host our third celebration of food and drink. We 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. They will discover something they have never tried before.”
On both days, members of the in house butchery and bakery teams will be on hand to share their expertise, hints and tips. They will also showcase some of their hand made produce for visitors to try.
The Big Food Tasting event takes place in the Food Hall and starts at 11am on both days.
British Food Fortnight is a national celebration of British food and drink that coincides with harvest festival.
The aim of the fortnight is to raise awareness of the benefits of buying and eating from the “home produced British larder.”
Tong Garden Centre is one of Yorkshire’s biggest garden centres with 110,000 square feet of retail space and parking for up to 1000 cars.
