Based in Govan and set up by a number of Glasgow’s street food vendors, Big Feed will launch on Saturday 4th March 2017.

The new market’s industrial indoor venue will play host to some of the best street food concepts and local brewers, set against a backdrop of live music.

The launch event will run from 12noon until 10pm, with a £1 entry fee on the door and free entry for kids under 10 years old.

Free parking will also be available, though the venue lies close to the Govan Underground.

On the menu at the market will be a diverse selection of high quality street food, from authentic Asian and Mexican inspired cuisine and fresh Scottish seafood to delicious burgers, wood fired pizzas and vegan fare, there will be something for everyone to choose from.

Scottish street food legends Chompsky and the Street Food Putter Club will feature alongside newer vendors like Firedog, Charlie Mills Coffee, Shrimp Wreck, Nomad Pizza, The Cheesy Toast Shack, Freddy and Hicks, Moo Pie Gelato and more.

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.
