Two Dromore producers will be among more than 60 food and drink exhibitors at this year’s Tesco Taste Festival from 18-20 September in Belfast’s Custom House Square.

Graham’s Bakery and Ruby Blue will be on hand to showcase what they have to offer.

Now in its seventh year, the Tesco event is firmly established, with around 20,000 people expected to visit over the weekend.

As well as more than 60 local exhibitors, many of whom are launching new products, the Festival boasts lots of free-to-sample food and drink plus entertainment, a petting zoo and a climbing wall.

U105fm will be hosting an afternoon show from the event on the Friday afternoon.

A number of well known local chefs will also be doing cookery demonstrations in conjunction with Food NI.

The event will stay open until 8pm on the Friday in order to be part of Belfast’s Culture Night.

Tesco NI Marketing Manager Caoimhe Mannion said the event was the showpiece in the annual Tesco Taste NI campaign and it underlined the retailer’s credentials as a ‘force for good food’ in Northern Ireland.

She said: “As the largest purchaser of NI food and drink we’re proud to say our commitment to local just gets bigger and better each year.

“All our Tesco fresh pork, chicken and beef, milk and eggs sold locally are sourced locally.

“Through our suppliers this benefits thousands of farming families across Northern Ireland.”

The opening hours for the Tesco Taste Festival are: Friday 18 September (2pm-8pm), Saturday 19 September (10am-6pm) and

Sunday 20 September (10am-5pm).
