Indian spices, hand-made breads and organic produce are the order of the day at this lively farmers’ market. You might even meet Elvis.
The first Oakwood Farmers Market, organised by local residents, was held in 2008 and, since then, it’s become one of most popular food markets in Leeds.
Held on the third Saturday of every month at Oakwood Clock (there’s also a Food & Craft Market on the first Saturday of the month) the emphasis is on fresh produce from Yorkshire and beyond – organic meats, cheeses, home-made cakes, Whitby fish, jams and chutneys being just a few. Guest stallholders include the Leeds Bread Co-op, Really Indian sauces and Msitu (a Swahili word meaning forest, and pronounced mm-see-two) Forage & Feast, run by Mina Said-Allsopp.
A wild food specialist, Mina also runs courses in foraging, natural skincare and wild flower extracting.
There’s a community stall supplying information about the local area - including the Girl Guides so if you know any likely candidates bring them along – and, by way of entertainment, the odd Elvis impersonator.
