Street Food is big news at the moment and the street food scene in the Midlands is so vibrant and growing, that I thought it was time to share my review of vegan offerings at our street food markets and event.
The markets I have visited over the last few weeks are Digbeth Dining Club - which runs every Friday evening in Digbeth, Birmingham from 5:30pm with music, bar and a canopy so weather cannot ruin the event. There were several vegan options available the evening I visited, including curry with rice, stir fry, spring rolls and tacos.
The next market I visited was the Royal Leamington Spa Eat Street, which takes place every Friday daytime 10-4 in Leamington Spa. Vegan options included wood fired pizza with mushrooms, tomatoes and chillies - minus the cheese, Thai food and Paella. This is a lovely chilled market, with friendly and passionate street food vendors.
The last one on my whistle-stop tour of street food markets was the Kings Heath Brum Yum Yum event, which happens one Saturday a month in Kings Heath Village Square in Birmingham. This was like a street party, live bands, a pop-up bar, picnic tables, a local produce market and lots of street food vendors including; Secret Pizza Society, Buddha Belly, Churros Susanna, JohnBoy's Catering and many more. Vegan options included pizza, churros, paella, curry, stirfry and spring rolls. The bar also sold Fentiman's and there was Pip's Hot Sauce selling vegan-friendly sauces and bread and olive stalls too.
So if you live in the Midlands region and fancy a great day or evening out with great food, brilliant atmosphere and lots of yummy vegan options, grab your mates and head to one of the markets and you will probably see us there!
Big Vegan Love,
