There will be a good selection of stalls serving a variety of take-away foods, including vegetarian options. All these stands are encouraged to use local produce, several of them are members of the Northern Dales Farmers' Market and producers of the produce they are selling - so come along and enjoy A Taste of the Dales!

Wensleydale Ladies Circle will be serving refreshments in the Tea Tent each day.
