Traders ready to share their produce at Bishop Auckland Food Festival

A weekend of tasty treats is lined up for Bishop Auckland Food Festival.

The free Durham County Council-run event will return October 2-3 with two days of activities, stalls, and chef demonstrations.

More than 100 independent and local traders will be setting up shop in Bishop Auckland’s Market Place, ready to share their produce with festival-goers. Visitors can discover their new favourite dish from the likes of Cubanos, Lebanese Street Food Truck, and La Pitta Catering or try some sweet treats from bakers such as Burtree Puddings, Daisy Donuts, and Simple Cheesecake.

People can also try a selection of cheeses from traders such as Weardale Cheese and The Great British Cheese Company, taste jams and chutneys from Puckett’s Pickles and Blueberry Hill Preserves or enjoy hot food from the Geordie Banger Company and Northumberland Sausage Company.

After welcoming more than 29,000 visitors in 2019, the return of Bishop Auckland Food Festival is expected to help boost the takings of local businesses and support the region’s economic recovery. It also supports the county’s bid to become UK City of Culture 2025.
