Street Eats, London’s street food festival, is coming to Old Spitalfields Market this July!

We’re excited to announce our inaugural Street Eats event! London’s Street Food Festival launches at Old Spitalfields Market on July 28th and 29th 2017 (11am – 9.30pm). The best of London’s street food will be available for Londoners and visitors to the city with unlimited free entry for both days.

Having been on the halal food scene for the last four years, we finally decided that we’d get some of our favourite foodies together to celebrate the best of London’s street food scene. London has some of the finest street food in the world, and Street Eats celebrates the best of this vibrant foodie community.

First and foremost, this festival is about great food. The list of vendors is carefully curated to make sure we’ve got a wide variety of cuisines, from Filipino Ice Cream to Burmese/Pakistani Khao Suey. In addition to the food, you can expect to find activities for kids and grown ups, lawn games, giveaways and live music.

You can expect to find traders like Chit Chaat Chai, Rola Wala, Blue Top Ice Cream, Oli Baba’s Halloumi Fries, Stacked Dutch Pancakes, Khao London, Chaatit and Bintang. The alcohol free bar will be run by Square Root London, a local Hackney based drinks specialist.

A good foodie experience doesn’t end after eating, and the ethos of Street Eats includes a commitment to a close to zero waste target. Working with local recycling organisations, Street Eats aims to ensure that all materials are recycled after the event. Left over food will be distributed to local shelters.

Perhaps most importantly, we’ve partnered with Penny Appeal’s Feed Our World campaign , asking people to donate whatever they can to those who live in food poverty both at home in the UK and abroad. People are encouraged to donate whatever they would normally spend on an entry fee to someone who needs it.

When we created Street Eats, we wanted to show the halal conscious dining community that you can have a food festival that has amazing food and is halal, and to create a space for friends and families to hang out in the evening and have a good time, in the absence of alcohol. For families, we’ve made sure we’ve got plenty of activities for kids, and for the young and the young at heart, live music and entertainment from 5.30pm.

On the other hand, we want to help the general foodie community experience a great time without alcohol, and to show that halal food can be of excellent quality. Plenty of people choose to go ‘dry’ these days, and this night out in London promises to be just as fun as any other.

The festival will take place from 11am-9.30pm on both Friday 28th July and Saturday 29th July 2017 at Old Spitalfields Market, 16 Horner Square, London, E1 6EW (closest station: Liverpool Street)
