Your friendly neighbourhood food and drink markets


No fuss and no gimmicks.

Just a committed bunch of excellent North East food and drink traders, brought together in carefully selected locations, selling quality products that not only feed our communities, but help to create jobs, promote entrepreneurship and keep money in the North East.

Thoughtful, respectful and well-curated, we are passionate about celebrating our local food culture and making local food accessible to all.

“The catcher of fish or an iconic dish. A manufacturing giant, communities reliant. A butcher, a grower or ancient seed sower. A blender of teas or iconic cheese. The artisan. The maker. The job creator. Merchants, producers, large and small.
They’re Local Heroes. One and all”
