The sixth Tweed Artisan Food Festival will be held at the end of the month – the festival runs for 10 days with 20 curated events showcasing the people, the place and the produce of the Tweed.

Spanning across the valley to the coast a range of bespoke events have been specifically created to offer an insider’s experience to the area.

Some of the finest venues from the region will swing open their doors to showcase the outstanding culinary flavours, culture and collective pride of the Tweeds local producers, chefs and farmers.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. Fantastic! I’ll let all my homeless and destitute friends know. I’m sure the stuffed and otherwise overfed bourgeoisie will welcome them with open wallets.
