Middlesbrough Christmas Market – Foodies

Posted by Michael on November 1, 2011

With Middlesbrough’s Christmas Market just about organised I thought it just right to mention some of the fantastic traders we have on board.

Dragonfly Bakery

Dragonfly Bakery,  specialises in delicious cupcakes in over 30 flavours, handmade with quality ingredients including farm fresh free range eggs. The Dragonfly Bakery has a colourful stall, which also makes celebration and wedding cakes for all occasions, and you will find a range of delicious treats available at market including their unique ‘Sunshine Fruitcakes’. All of the cakes are derived from traditional English Farmhouse recipes.

The Dragonfly Bakery also does Vintage Tea Parties where they provide a savoury range but the Christmas Farmer’s Market in Middlesbrough will see the exclusive market launch of a delicious savoury range, The Farmhouse Savoury Collection, including traditional recipes for pies and quiches along with some more contemporary flavours and styles. The Farmhouse Savoury Collection includes a range of delicious preserves and chutneys, including some mouthwatering winter warmers and spicy Christmas treats.

Burtons Bangers & Bacon

At Burton’s Bangers all the meat in there sausages is pure British shoulder and belly pork ONLY , with no hidden ingredients that customers might otherwise find unsavoury.
There  bacon is NOT injection cured (the commercial method which is quicker but bulks up the product with water).  They  instead use the older, slower technique of immersion curing (also called “pickling”). This method takes longer – a few weeks in fact.  Once cured, the bacon is dried and then matured in there chiller before being sliced and vacuum packed to seal in it’s freshness.

Adams Apple

Chris Carabine of Adam’s Apple makes  freshly hand pressed apple juice which is a big hit with Market shoppers  “perfect for making mulled apple juice for Christmas’ I for one will be byeing some

Chris  named Adam’s Apple after his 13 year-old son Adam.


Danni makes  raw vegan organic nurture foods which include energy bars, chocolates, desserts, nut butters and cheeses, crackers and savoury dishes. Danni is also hoping to have some holistic cards and artworks for sale on the day.

Danni’s products can also be found in local health food shops

The One Stop Hot Shop

Quality award winning chilli products from extreme hot chilli sauce to chilli chocolate – your one stop shop for all things chilli – perfect for the chilli lover.

Hand made in Yorkshire by Andrea Wood one and two star wining products in the 2010 and 2011 Great Taste Awards.

Andrea will also be serving hot soup on the day.

The Gingerbread House

The Gingerbread house specialises in delicious handmade Gingerbread, made to Liz’s own traditional gingerbread recipe and using only the freshest spices and the finest ingredients to create beautiful hand made luxury gingerbread houses, gingerbread biscuits and personalised wedding favours.

To ensure freshness all of there products are baked in small batches and delivered by hand to a small group of specialist food retailers.

 The Gingerbread house is based in the hamlet of Egton Grange high in the hills of the North Yorks Moors.

Chilli Cake Deli

Chilli Cake Deli is a new buissnes soon to appear in Middlesbrough. At Middlesbrough’s Christmas Market they will be serving freshly cooked food all day.
