On Saturday 4th June, visitors to Hovingham have a unique opportunity to visit both the monthly village Market and Hovingham Hall.
This Palladian Hall, childhood home of Katharine Worsley, Duchess of Kent, was designed and built by Thomas Worsley between 1750 and 1770, and is open to the public each year for the month of June only.
At the market, it’s time for outdoor living, BBQs, picnics, getting together with friends and family, so if you love food, you can be sure to find something special, from exquisite smoked salmon, to real organic bread, the finest artisanal cakes and pastries, cookies & biscuits, meats, Hovingham sausages, Italian artisan food, apple juices, tasty pickles, jams and preserves (fruit grown by the maker), oils, real coffees and teas, Ryedale honey, Ryedale cheeses, Scarborough fish, locally grown vegetables, fruit, hand- made chocolates, pies, vegetarian and gluten free soups and foods.
And when your shopping bags are full, you can take a well-earned rest in the Community Cafe. This month your hosts are Scackleton Over 60’s.
The market takes place at the Village Hall and car park from 10.30am to 1.30pm.
Hovingham Hall is open for guided tours only, starting as the market draws to a close, at the following times: 12.50pm, 1.30pm and then half hourly until 3.30pm. These times also apply for weekend tours for the rest of June, up to the 28th; week day tours are fewer in number. More information on the Hall here.
