SKIPTON Foodie Weekend is due to take place on Saturday and Sunday (August 12 and 13) - and hopes are high for a dry and sunny couple of days.

Great food and crafts will be on offer in the canal basin from 10am to 4pm both days, as well as the usual Saturday market on the High Street.

Produce on offer will include fresh bread to organic fruit and vegetables, cakes, pizza, seafood and jewellery.

Real Markets will also be in Skipton High Street on Sunday featuring a large selection of Yorkshire’s best local and speciality producers and makers.

In addition to hot food, fresh coffee and beer, there will be handmade candles, crafts, arts and jewellery on sale.

There will also be face-painters and musical entertainment throughout the day.

A spokesperson said more than 30 traders would be at Sunday's event which promised to be a great, free day out.

Producers include Skipton based Andrea's Cheesecake Heaven and Antony's Biltong. "Antony has only recently started selling his home-produced biltong and it is fast becoming a success at markets. "Using grass-fed beef supplied by his family farm, Antony creates a range of beef biltong which he sells alongside his venison biltong."
