Sourced Market has opened at Leeds Skelton Lake Services, the new M1 service station from Extra MSA Group.

It is the first site outside London for the hybrid food to go operator and artisan food and drink retailer.

The 4,500 sq ft Leeds site, which was first announced last year, will be the group’s third trading site, with two pop-ups and a site at Victoria Nova currently closed.

The outlet will have an all-day menu including breakfast pastries, sausage rolls, filled brioches, sandwiches and salads, and artisan coffee.

It will have a farmer’s markets-inspired, artisan producer-supplied store, and an outside dining terrace.

Rotisserie chicken and made to order hot pasta will also be available, alongside craft beer, spirits, biscuits, confectionery and gift hampers.

The store will draw from local produce including The Original Baker, Bakeri Baltzersen, Farmison & Co., Raydale, Longley Farm, Acorn Dairies and Taylors of Harrogate.

The licensed bar will serve craft beers from Kirkstall Brewery and Leeds Brewery and Yorkshire spirits from Sing’s Gin and Mason’s.

Leeds Skelton, a £64 development which opened in March, is billed as one of the most environmentally sustainable motorway service areas in the UK.

Scott Macdonald, MD at Sourced Market, said: “Bringing together food and drink’s most exciting innovators is part of our DNA and we’re excited to be creating a foodie experience for those making journeys on the M1 as well as residents in Yorkshire.

“We believe we have created a food and drink destination that’s worth planning into your journey or taking the trip to if you’re more local.”

Andrew Long, CEO of Extra MSA Group, added: “The opening of Sourced Market double underlines Leeds Skelton Lake Service’s already strong reputation as a great place to rest, relax and refuel. Visitors will be able to eat and drink local produce, whilst enjoying well designed facilities in an attractively landscaped lakeside setting, which has helped redefine what visitors can expect from a Motorway Service area.”
