Introducing: Foodie Street Food Night Market
Street food has become hugely popular in the last five years, it’s always been there of course; a cheap and fast alternative to commercial takeaways and restaurants, but it’s gained popularity year on year and shows no sign of slowing down.
A good food or drink truck offers a fast, high quality alternative to our high street takeaways and a more casual and laid-back experience than a standard restaurant. Without the overheads of a traditional restaurant or café there’s scope for a wide and exciting array of traders to operate and bring their own brand of food and drink to a wider audience.
The Vino Van has been present at some fantastic food and drink events in the last year and it’s been hugely rewarding working alongside such innovative and talented people. After attending a couple of events we realized there was nothing similar available in or around Corby. We know there are plenty of good food lovers in the area so a gap in the market was identified. Fast forward a couple of months, a lot of research and lots of food tasting (a tough job, but someone’s got to do it…) and say hello to Foodie, our first street food and drink festival.
The first event will be held at Corby’s S&L Football Club on Friday 30th March and we’re happy to announce a line-up of traders that we’re really excited to be working alongside. We think you will be happy to be in their company too. Confirmed so far are:
Midlands based Texas style barbecue Little Urban BBQ
Authentic pizza served from a converted original Fiat 500 by Stony’s Pizza
Flavoured vodkas and vodka based cocktails from Jelleys Distilleries
Posh pork and lamb from Farmer Lou
Cocktails and a range of drinks served from repurposed airliner trolleys by Fly by Bars
Hand pressed, locally sourced steak burgers from Sizzlers Burger Shack
Gourmet Mexican street food including tacos, quesadillas and nachos from Sonora Taco Truck
Gourmet macaroni cheese from MAC OG
Twice cooked Belgian speciality fries from Real Belgian Fries
Ice creams and desserts from Mr Whippy ice cream van
Locally sourced real ale, ciders and spirits served from a converted vintage caravan by the Little Big Ale Company
The Vino Van will be open too, of course, adding some fizz to the festivities. We’ll see you there, just bring your appetite and your dancing shoes as there’ll be a DJ to add to the mix too.
