A TASTY touring street market is coming back to the North East.

The Big Eat will return to Durham City’s Market Square from June 6 to 9, after a successful visit in March.

The event brings together ethical, eco-friendly, artisan and traceable produce and products both local sources and across the globe.

An eclectic mix of world street food, plus regional homemade grocery foods, will be on offer alongside arts, crafts, clothing, jewellery and accessories, as well as a mini real ale festival.

Paul Kennedy, of organisers The Market Square Group, said: “We’re really pleased to be invited back to Durham with this event, which is a new theme for 2013.

“It was very well received in March and we will, once again, be bringing along quality goods that are manufactured both in the UK and abroad under fair working conditions and with fair reward for all involved in their production.”

Visitors will be entertained by classical violinist Andrew Hubbard, who has extensive performing experience on both the violin and the piano in the West End, in theatre and session work.

He has played piano in the orchestra for The Phantom of the Opera.
