A popular fair proved to be a tasty addition as it returned to a business park.

Quorum Business Park, in Longbenton, held its fourth annual North East Food Fair.

More than 30 stalls offered a wide selection of fresh produce and tasty treats including chocolates, cheeses, crêpes and chutneysy.

Grosvenor Casino provided charitable entertainment with a pop-up casino and raising money for Cash for Kids.

Alongside the more traditional produce, fiery-flavoured samples were offered at world cuisine stalls, offering dishes inspired by far-away lands.

Sal Taylor, owner of Tasty Thai Deli and first time exhibitor, said: “I think it’s brilliant that small, local artisan businesses get a chance to shine and showcase their produce.

“The food scene in the north east has exploded and people are becoming more adventurous with the foods they’re willing to try.”

Quorum Business Park events and sustainability manager Laura Barber said: “We’ve seen an even bigger turnout this year than ever before which has made the food fair another great success for all involved.”
