Thursday 6nd June will see the beginning of monthly Pease Pudding night markets in the Market Square, with street food, entertainment and speciality stalls, capturing the spirit of the popular Food Festival in a monthly market.
This Sunday saw Darlington’s first Farmer’s Market, which offered a range of artisan food stalls. Crowds enjoyed shopping, street food and a covered seating area with live entertainment along West Row. The Farmer’s Market will return on the first Sunday of the month throughout Summer, and MAM are excited to grow the event to include a wide selection of artisan and fresh produce.
Thursday will see the launch of MAM’s other new event, the Pease Pudding Night Markets, which will capture the spirit of the Food Festival with evening markets in the Market Square offering a selection of street food, artisan produce and entertainment. Some of the stalls on offer include Darlington’s own Hole in the Wall, Spud Gun Loaded Fries, The Falafel Fella, Little Korean, On the Goa, Phipie and of course, Pease Pudding specialist Pete’s Puddin’, along with many more. Entertainment will include face painting and a live DJ. The market will run from 4pm to 9pm and will have something to offer everyone of all ages.
Market Manager Alexandra Nicholson said “The feedback we received from the Food and Drink Festival was that Darlington residents overwhelmingly want to see more of these events taking place in the town. We are excited to launch the Pease Pudding Markets to meet this demand, stimulate the evening economy, and bring street food nights to Darlington for the whole family to enjoy.
