The market beat stiff competition from Rockin' Boat Trips (Causeway Sea Fishing Company) and We Are Vertigo to scoop the prize at the awards ceremony in Derry/Londonderry, organised by Tourism Northern Ireland.

The award win comes in the same week that St George's hosted its second Twilight Market.

The event was extended to over two nights and welcomed over 18,000 people through its doors for chef demonstrations, live music, family activities and delicious culinary treats from local producers.
