Wasabi ice-cream. Henderson's Relish crisps. Fig macarons. Sheffield is blessed with a huge array of mouthwateringly unconventional foods and flavours, coming straight out of the kitchens of the city's creative producers.
Here are a handful of Sheffield's very best food producers. Their products are available in local delicatessens across the city, including Mr Pickles on Abbeydale Road, Beanies on Crookes Valley Road and Porter Brook Deli on Sharrow Vale Road. Keep an eye out for local street markets and in the city centre’s Moor Market.

Producers of lovely milk and delightful ice cream, including some special flavours which are only available at the farm shop in Dungworth.
Sheffield Honey Company
Whether you like your honey runny, floral, scented or still oozing out of the comb, the Sheffield Honey Company will have something for you.

Purveyors of spicy sauce in varying degrees. Try the spicy golden syrup in a cocktail for something different.
