Food & Drink in the Visitor EconomyTaste Durham showcases and celebrates the county’s food and drink and encourages people who live here, and those who are visiting, to sample the best we have on offer.


Local food and produce is sought out by more and more people who are looking for an authentic experience and who care where their food comes from. The vibrancy of farmers markets, the emergence of more and more food festivals across the country and the growing number of food tourists are evidence of this trend.


Taste Durham is for all businesses in Durham’s food and drink sector - producers, suppliers and retailers. It helps businesses identify themselves to their customers as a quality business that source locally and are proud of thecounty’s food heritage. It helps businesses stand out from the crowd, attract more customers and can make a real difference to the bottom line.
