THE LOCAL HEROES VIRTUAL MARKET IS NOW CLOSED
A big thank you to all our customers for supporting this important initiative. What a year it’s been.
Look out for our next exciting iteration coming soon!
The North East of England is home to some of the most talented, hard working food and drink heroes there are. We’re proud to be associated with them and it’s our aim to introduce as many people as possible to their work.
Riley’s Fish Shack
“How did our tiny fish shack nestled in King Edward’s Bay, Tynemouth receive national recognition? Because our menu is based on whatever has been landed locally that day. Fresh lobster, hake, turbot, monkfish and oysters are all prepared on-site.”
“I remember my grandfather making it when I was a child. Years later, after he’d passed away, we discovered his recipe so my wife and I decided to try making it. We shared the results and the feedback was great so we knew we were onto something.”
The Winery by Laneberg Wine
“Coming home to set up the first urban winery on Tyneside has been a dream come true. I’m one of the lucky ones who found their passion in life in winemaking and made it a reality. I’m so proud to share this with friends, family and the people of the North East.”
