About Us

For over 30 years, Hunters has been at the forefront of providing the very best quality food and drink in North Yorkshire.

We are a family business that values quality and provenance, and we're passionate about sharing this with our customers.

As well as providing a wide selection of Yorkshire produce, supporting local and regional suppliers, we scour the globe to find products that keep customers coming back for more.

The Deli

Based in a historic and quirky Grade II listed building in Helmsley’s picturesque Market Place, our store is a treasure trove of fresh and store cupboard favourites.

Home cooked meats, cheeses, alcoholic and soft beverages, sweet and savoury treats and some pottery and glassware too!

Famous for our deep filled sandwiches and salads all made to order, a stop off at Hunters is a must.

We also offer a range of our own products online.


Our aim is to be the best deli in Yorkshire, and we're lucky enough to have some awards under our belt that say exactly that.

As well as winning the title of Britain’s Best Small Shop (something we could have only dreamt of!), we’re proud title-holders for the Best Independent Retailer (North) at the Great British Food Awards.

We've previously won and been shortlisted at the:

- Yorkshire Post Rural Awards
- Farm Shop and Deli Awards
- Flavours of Herriot Country Awards
- Food and Travel Magazine Awards
- Yorkshire Life Food & Drink Awards
