An indoor street food market featuring some of the finest traders and food trucks Scotland has to offer will pop-up this spring. Big Feed is a 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, Big Feed’s industrial indoor venue will play host to some excellent street food concepts and local brewers, with a soundtrack of live music from local bands.

On the menu at the market will be a selection of authentic Asian and Mexican inspired cuisine, fresh Scottish seafood, gourmet burgers, wood-fired pizzas and vegan fare.

Charlie Mills Coffee
Shrimp Wreck
Nomad Pizza
The Cheesy Toast Shack
Freddy and Hicks
Moo Pie Gelato

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
