Taste Durham Month

Taste Durham Month takes place in October every year, during harvest time when there is an abundance of great local produce.  Businesses are invited to take part by creating or promoting a dish that clearly sources local ingredients or has a strong Durham story to tell, by providing a special offer or running a foodie event.


The month-long celebration of food and drink is designed to raise the profile of your business whilst getting local residents and visitors alike excited about discovering Durham’s fantastic foodie offer.


Our visitors spend at least half of their money on food and drink when they are here, and we know they are keen to seek unique experiences with local produce and dishes.


It is FREE for you to participate and there are a number of promotional opportunities that will benefit your business:
