Food Outing - Pannier Market, Granary Wharf, Leeds
Granary Wharf is a lovely area on the waterfront at the back of Leeds Rail Station. Every last Saturday of the month, it plays host to a pannier market with a variety of traders selling homemade produce both edible and/or decorative.
Me and the Other Half decided to have a wander down to check out what was happening and were pleasantly surprised by the variety of stalls and the quality of products available.
We didn't stay for long but picked up some foodie treats such as fresh olives, cheeses from the Calderdale Cheese Company and a bottle of dairy fresh milk (swiped from the cow that morning according to the friendly seller) which was lovely and creamy. We also sampled some homemade Turkish delight style sweets made with rose water which were lovely. It is perhaps a good thing that we ran out of money and there was no near cashpoint or many more would have been spent. Check out the next one on the 28th August, See you there.
