Tasty line-up for Leeds’s first weekly fair

Have your say

The line up for the city’s first weekly street food fair for years has been revealed and food fans are in for a treat.

EatNorth launches on Saturday with a mix of pop-ups that will be both familiar to food fans and also some new names.

Leading the way on Saturday will be Little Red Food Truck, Blue Caribou Canteen, Dukkha, Baltzersen’s and Laynes Espresso.

The fair will be at the North Brewing Co taproom just off North Street in Sheepscar and is a collaboration between the beer house and the organisers of the Leeds In die Food Fest which has just enjoyed a hugely successful sixth year.

Matt Dix (Festival Director, Leeds Indie Food) said: “We’ve been trying to get a weekly street food event off the ground for ages, and we’re really chuffed that everything has fallen into place with EatNorth.

“The North Brewing Co taproom is the perfect place, and we know the North Bar team can find their way around a bar too. We’ve booked some killer street food traders from all over the UK, with plenty of new faces to Leeds.

“Events like GRUB in Manchester show there’s a real appetite for good food and good beer, and we’re excited to offer a bite of Leeds Indie Food every week, all summer.”

The line up for the first five weeks afterwards are also already fully booked so expect to see some local favourites such as Pizza Loco, Manjit’s Kitchen and Laynes Espresso.

John Gyngell , director of North Brewing Co added: “The opportunity to work with Leeds Indie Food is really exciting, especially given the reaction to this year’s festival. The variety of the food traders looks incredible, and we love that there will always be something different for people to try with the core range of North Brewing Co. beers and new releases.”
