Weetons Food Hall

Our producers and the longstanding relationship we have with them is key to our ability to supply the very best seasonal products, made with care and integrity and offering a unique balance of provenance, quality and value. In the main, our producers are (like us) independent Yorkshire based businesses, passionate about their product and fiercely proud of their reputation.

But we also know that our discerning customers enjoy food and flavours from a little further afield and we have established relationships with suppliers across the UK and abroad to ensure you have everything you need for the ultimate foodie experience!

Here are just a few of our local suppliers to whet your appetite…

Steenbergs

Steenbergs is a Yorkshire based, family business run by Axel and Sophie Steenberg.
They established Steenbergs through a desire to bring organic, Fairtrade spices to the UK, and have spent the last 12 years building on their ethical sourcing and artisan hand-blending skills.


Steenbergs now boast a plethora of products, ranging from spices and teas, to stuffing mixes, flavoured sugars and natural baking extracts.

YORKSHIRE DALES DISTILLERY

Sarah and Tony Brotherton settled on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales and established Yorkshire Dales Distillery in April 2016.

Tony’s cottage farm living grandparents were the original G&T fans inspiring a passion for home grown quality and the finest natural ingredients; Grandad used to scrimp on the gin for himself if times were hard but he always made sure that Grandma had her share.

There is a rapidly growing Team at the Distillery and the employment and training of Veterans, ex-offenders, young people and the long term unemployed is prioritised.

Loose Birds of Harome

Husband and wife team Janet and Paul Talling rear their chickens in grass paddocks, giving the birds plenty of space to roam and lots of lovely grass to feed on (which produces high levels of the fatty acid Omega-3 and gives their meat with a distinctive golden hue). This is a chicken like you have never tasted before

Furthermore, as an animal welfare and behavioural scientist, Janet has made it her mission to ensure their birds all live happy, healthy and most importantly, stress-free life. Loose birds of Harome have raised the bar of farming this humble bird and the results are there for the tasting

George Morrell Farms

Each year, as a new Spring dawns, we eagerly await the eight-week asparagus season but with such a short season, we believe it’s crucial to stock the finest harvest.

George Morrell is a family-owned business based in Plumpton, near Knaresborough. Established more than 60 years ago, they cultivate asparagus of the ‘Ariane’ variety which is renowned for its superior taste.
With just 18 acres of land to harvest, the cream of the asparagus crop is in such demand that almost all of it is destined for the plates of discerning customers in Yorkshire

Womersley Fruit and Herb Vinegars

Womersley Hall near Pontefract, produces delicious, additive-free fruit and herb vinegars and jellies in a wide range of taste-tingling flavours.

Made by hand at the family home to unique recipes, the inspiration for the inventive flavour combinations comes from the fruit and herbs grown in the family’s own garden.

Today, traditional methods are still used, whether it’s for an ‘Apple & Apache Chilli’ jelly – a sizzler with cold meats and cheeses – or a ‘Lime, Black Pepper & Lavender’ vinegar, perfect drizzled on ice-cream or pancakes. Always a stable in our larder, this is one accompaniment collection you’ll wonder how you lived without.

The Fruity kitchen

The Fruity Kitchen was created to produce handmade jams, chutneys and relishes using traditional methods and inspired by the founder’s Grandmother. With no use of additives, preservatives, setting agents or colourings, this delightful gourmet kitchen prefers instead to use only high quality ingredients straight from the kitchen cupboard.

Weetons is proud to support the Fruity Kitchen; their outstanding products complement our range to perfection and their offering is continuously evolving to bring in new products all the time. Definitely one to watch.

SHEPHERD'S PURSE ARTISAN CHEESE

Shepherds Purse Artisan Cheeses was founded in the late 1980’s when Judy Bell set out to create quality dairy alternatives for cow’s milk allergy sufferers.

Judy won her first Gold award in 1989 with Olde York at Nantwich International Cheese Show. In 2017 their Harrogate Blue won Super Gold at the World Cheese awards and has frequently been named amongst the top 15 cheeses in the World!

YOCKENTHWAITE FARM

As fifth generation hill-sheep farmers, the Hird family know a thing or two about a hard day’s work and just what’s needed to fuel it.

They started making their own-recipe granola when visitors staying overnight at the farm enjoyed it for breakfast and kept coming back for more. They soon added porridge and muesli to the range and have been making more and more ever since.

Initially, diversification was seen as a way to support their farm at Yockenthwaite in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales but it soon became new passion! Still a small family business (and still happily farming), the Hird’s are as committed as ever to creating naturally delicious food, full of the flavour and texture their award-winning range is renowned for.

VOAKES PIES

The Voakes family have farmed in North Yorkshire for over 40 years and hold an exemplary record for animal husbandry.

Voakes pork pies are produced from pigs bred at the family farm, Whixley Grange. Only the best cuts of pork and carefully selected ingredients are used to produce award winning pies.
