RETURNS TO LEEDS
From 28 April, Eat North will return to North Brewing Co. taproom for 18 weeks during the summer. From the team being the city’s favourite food festival, Leeds Indie Food, and the award-winning brewery North Brewing Co., Eat North entered the scene in 2017, as the first weekly street food event that Leeds city centre had ever hosted.
From 28 April to 25 August, a rotating line-up of traders will pitch up at the brewery every Saturday. With the brewery’s location not far from well-known independents such as Belgrave Music Hall, The Brunswick and The Reliance, the return of Eat North will reaffirm Leeds’ place on the street food map, alongside other Northern cities such as Manchester, Newcastle and Sheffield, where such weekly events are increasingly popular.
Eat North provides an opportunity for street food veterans and first-time traders to showcase their latest menus to hungry punters and curious foodies. The monthly vegetarian edition Veg North is the chance for traders to experiment with and trial new vegetarian dishes and this year will also see the inaugural Vegan North. Alongside the food offering, there is award-winning craft beer on offer from North Brewing Co., such as their Transmission IPA which was named the UK’s Best IPA at Imbibe Live in 2017. Each week also features DJs, outdoor games and the street food fair is family-friendly and dog-friendly!
The line-up includes over thirty different street food traders serving everything from Latin American arepas to Kenyan barbeque, plus speciality coffee and sweet options available every week alongside award-winning craft beers, spirits and wine. Veg North will see vegetarian and vegan traders serving up a meat free menu, complimented by vegan beers and wines on the bar, and Vegan North will showcase a fully vegan food and drink offering.
