Local traders announced for Seaham Food Festival

In just five weeks’ time, a County Durham seaside town will come to life with a “scrumptious selection” of food vendors and entertainment.

Traders from the county and beyond are preparing for Seaham Food Festival, which will be returning for two days of “food and fun” at the town’s coastline on Saturday August 6 and Sunday August 7.

Organisers of the Durham County Council event have announced this year’s extensive list of food retailers who are ready to share dishes and delicacies with visitors. Festival goers can look forward to tasting a selection of global street food, from traditional East Asian dishes, Greek gyros and Lebanese shawarma to American-style burgers and “luxury” loaded fries.

For those with a sweet tooth, there will be dessert stalls offering treats from brownies and cheesecake to churros, candy, and macarons.

There will also be a choice of local artisan traders, selling everything from cheese, jams, and pickles to distilled gins and brewed beer. And when visitors are ready for tea break, a host of vendors will be ready with hot and cold beverages, from coffee to cocktails.

Cllr Elizabeth Scott, Durham County Council’s Cabinet member for economy and partnerships, said: “We are really excited to announce the amazing traders for this year’s festival and I hope people are preparing their appetites for a fun-filled weekend.

“With over 120 stalls offering an assortment of incredible food, drinks, and activities, there will be lots to get your teeth into.”

Local businesses along North Terrace are also taking part in the festival, with businesses operating from their premises and stalls. Finally, visitors can explore community stalls offering crafts and workshops as well as independent traders selling everything from plants and garden décor to jewellery, pet supplies and high-quality kitchen accessories.
