Glasgow to Host Brand New Street Food Market

Glasgow foodies will be in for a treat when an indoor street food market featuring some of the finest traders and food trucks Scotland has to offer pops-up this spring, bringing a unique culinary experience to the city.

Big Feed is a brand new venture set up by a number of Glasgow’s street food vendors, and the first event will take place on Saturday 4th March 2017.

Based in Govan in the south side of Glasgow, Big Feed’s industrial indoor venue will play host to some of the best street food concepts and local brewers, set against a backdrop of live music.

On the menu at the market will be a diverse selection of high quality street food. From authentic Asian and Mexican inspired cuisine and fresh Scottish seafood to delicious burgers, wood fired pizzas and vegan fare there will be something for everyone to choose from.
Vendors will include Chompsky, Street Food Putter Club, Firedog, Charlie Mills Coffee, Shrimp Wreck, Nomad Pizza, The Cheesy Toast Shack, Freddy and Hicks, Moo Pie Gelato and more.
Edinburgh’s Campervan Brewery will also be making an appearance, serving up a range of distinct hand crafted beers, whilst mobile Prosecco bar Fizz Buz will provide the bubbly for the occasion.
The warehouse location at 249 Govan Road is run by Glasgow the Caring City – a charity which supports children and young people in crisis at home and overseas in a number of ways, including providing skills to help them gain employment. Big Feed will be supporting the cause through making use of the venue, as well as by commissioning some of the young apprentices in the programme to prepare the venue for the event.
Ben Dantzic, one of the organisers behind Big Feed, said: “There’s such a great choice of street food markets in European cities and with the scene now gathering pace in the UK, we thought it was the ideal time to join forces and provide a platform to showcase the high quality and diverse range of street food on offer in Glasgow.
“Govan is the ideal location for our first event and we’re proud to be able to bring this exciting new experience, while supporting an extremely worthwhile cause at the same time.”

The event will run from 12noon until 10pm on Saturday 4th March 2017. There is a £1 entry fee on the door and free entry for kids under 10 years old. Free parking is also available.

Date: Saturday 4th March 2017

Time: 12noon to 10pm

Location: 249 Govan Road, Glasgow, G51 5HJ
