Hundreds of visitors have descended on Berwick Quayside and the adjacent Dewar’s Lane Granary for the Mouth of the Tweed Festival.
The event, held in glorious sunshine, is a showcase for the best food and drink produced within a 16-mile radius of Berwick.
Among the stalls and products on sale is organic free range eggs from Hutton, honey from Chain Bridge, cheeses and ice-cream from Doddington Dairy, Giacopazzi’s sorbets and ice-creams from Eyemouth, wood-fired oven-baked bread from the Great Northumberland Bread Company, fresh strawberries, jams and preserves from Oxford Farm and Willow Cottage at Lowick, and organic meat and charcuterie products from Peelham Farm.
A very rare local delicacy is the smoked wild salmon from Paxton House, which has the only traditional net and coble fishery on the Tweed.
The food offer on the quayside includes fresh seafood from Berwick Shellfish Company and Spanish-style street food from El Taperio Restaurant.
Well Hung and Tender from Castlehills Farm in Berwick are barbecuing some of their prime Aberdeen Angus beef products in the Dewar’s Lane Granary courtyard, where visitors can also find real ale on tap from Spittal’s own Bear Claw micro-brewery.
Alongside the stalls there will be displays from Heatherslaw Corn-mill, the Berwick Slow Food Group and Northumberland Inshore Fisheries & Conservation Authority.
