We had a early Sunday morning visit to the free Autumn Graze market this weekend, arranged by The Grazer, Anna Hedworth in Jesmond. 

Amongst the exhibitors were old favourites The Broad Chare, Hotel du Vin, and many other producers such as The Teashed, Olive Tree Charcuterie and more. We went in feeling hungry and did not come out disappointed!

We made a bee-line for Gosforth’s Deli Fina, which was serving food from The Feathers Inn – lo and behold, they had this year’s EAT Festival favourites out, black pudding and apple sausage rolls! These are amazing, they should be available as a bar snack?

Also managed to get some pork pie heaven from The Broad Chare, and couldn’t resist a tried and tested steak and ale pie as well. Also demolished some of Emily’s Triple Chocolate Brownies (nicely packaged and amazingly rich and gooey), and find-of-the-weekend, a cup of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” chai tea from The Teashed – it’s cinnamon warmth helped stave off the rain. Our new favourite tea!

Would have loved a HDV burger (are they as good as Malmaison’s?) and some Archer’s Jersey ice cream, but alas, the rain and a full stomach put pay to that. Glad to see that loads of people and producers turned up, and we’re looking forward to a hopefully even bigger and better “Spring Graze”…
