A one-night only Street Food market will take place in Bristol on Friday, July 13 when the disused Fermentation Building at Finzels Reach will open up to become a food market, complete with some of the finest street food traders in the South West.
Finzels Reach is not normally open to the public. The Fermentation Building, which used to be a Courage brewery, has not been occupied for many years and is an impressive example of the rich brewing history of this particular riverside site.
The impressive building, located over the bridge from Castle Park, will soon become a new hub for Left Handed Giant’s brewery and Michelin star restaurant Casamia, but the market is set to take place as an opportunity event before the development begins.
Foodies can expect to feast on a diverse selection of street food including crispy chicken wings from Gurt Wings, Alpine style mac & cheese from Alp Mac, Philly cheesesteaks from NYC Eats, slow smoked beef short rib and pork belly from Low ‘n’ Slow, Thai curry from Niangs Thai Snacks, BBQ jackfruit gyros from The Smoked Vegan, chocolate brownies from The Kitchen Chef and much more.
Beer will be supplied by local brewery Left Handed Giant who will soon open a brew pub in the Compressor Building at Finzels Reach, while Espensen Spirit will be on hand rustling up delicious cocktails using a range of their own naturally infused gins and vodkas.
Event organiser Sophie Bowden, who also runs the successful Finzels Reach street food market every Friday, said: “There’s been much discussion in the food industry around the demand for more indoor industrial spaces to be used for exciting street food events in the city.
“We’re delighted to be given kind permission from Cubex to use the stunning Fermentation Building just days before the building is developed.”
The market takes place between 5pm-10pm on Friday, July 13.Tags: Finzels Reach Bristol
