We’re very lucky to have lot’s of great food and drink producers and retailers here on the Yorkshire Coast. Here are just a few of our favourites for stocking up on those Christmas essentials this year, not to mention that you’ll be shopping local and supporting our local business community too.
Turkey: Redcliffe Farm Shop
Redcliffe Farm is a supplier of John Wright Traditional Free Range Farm Fresh Christmas Turkeys which are a proper, old-fashioned breed that is matured slowly on grass to develop a succulent, fuller flavour. They are hand plucked and hung to create a great-tasting bird which is full of tender, juicy meat, ensuring that only the very best will grace your table this Christmas. I’m looking forward to my Hen this Christmas, she’ll be juicy and plump!
Meat: Landers of Whitby
Christmas is the time of plenty and for those meat lovers, it’s the best time of the year! Who can resist a glazed ham or pigs in blankets? Landers Butchers offer great priced Christmas meat packs with everything you need over the festive period.
Fruit & Vegetables: Smarts of Filey
An abundance of vegetables is what really makes Christmas dinner in our house, find everything you need from the mandatory sprouts to fresh cranberries at Smarts of Filey.
Cake & Treats: Botham’s of Whitby
Treat yourself to hampers, bread, cakes, and biscuits all available to order online or in-store at any Botham’s store. They have all the Christmassy classics to cosy up and enjoy by the fire with a cuppa. Not sure whether they have a six-pence in their Puddings, but I can’t wait to find out.
Fish & Seafood: Sandgate Seafoods
Having fresh fish and seafood over Christmas always feels like a luxury and there’s way more than the obligatory Prawn Cocktail on offer at Sandgate Seafoods with Christmas Eve boxes available like the one shown above.
