The Local Heroes ‘Pop Up’ Shop

From Teesside to Tyneside, County Durham to Northumberland – the North East has some of the UK’s best food and drink producers!

With pressure mounting on outdoor markets and events, we weren’t going to let this pandemic stop us from showcasing our region’s amazing local produce with our local community!

Introducing our ‘Local Heroes Pop Up Shop’, held every Saturday 10am-4pm, in collaboration with Kennedy and Rhind, a new venture from renowned chef David Kennedy and outstanding baker Murray Rhind. Serving you the city’s best fresh bakery, patisserie and ready to eat produce.

We also welcome Morpeth’s very own Wilde Farm who bring a fantastic selection of seasonal vegetables and local meat alongside our cheese, beer, wine and store cupboard essentials all in one place.


*Full Covid 19 measures have been put in place to ensure the safety of all customers during their visit.


We want to share our passion for the region’s food and drink producers, brands and incredible chef talent. Our newsletter will bring you stories about our #LocalHeroesNE, celebrating our regional food culture through recipes curated by regional chefs, their food memories and inspiration for what you can cook up with the contents of your boxes. We’ll also be telling you first hand what impact we are having within our communities and giving a platform to those who are benefitting from our community fund.

Support the #LocalHeroesNE Community Fund

Every box purchased on this site will have 10% added to it at checkout. This money will go to form a Community Fund that will help support people in need across the North East of England. More details on how this fund will be administered will be available soon. Until then any monies raised will go towards helping local people in crisis at the Newcastle West End Foodbank.
