If you fancy a spot of food and drink retail therapy or are looking for your self-catering supplies then you have come to the right area. The North York Moors and Coast is an ideal region to source quality produce, often sold directly from farms, farm shops or growers. In the towns and villages visitors will find a whole array of retail food and drink outlets offering a whole manner of tantalising and mouth watering produce - your only worry will be your waistline! A visit to the deli in Helmsley is well worth a day out, or a trip to Whitby to buy some kippers smoked on the premises using a tradition smoking room is a worthwhile experience. There are also a whole host of microbreweries in and around the region producing superb real-ales which are a must.
