Big Feed heats up in Glasgow this weekend

BigFeed

Indoor street food market, Big Feed is back on the menu in Glasgow on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th May 2017 and is set to be even bigger and better with the launch of a new outdoor seating area.

The unique experience, which first popped up in March this year, is fast becoming a regular fixture on the city’s culinary calendar. The addition of the outside space provides the chance to sample delicious cuisine from some of the finest traders and food trucks Scotland has to offer, while basking in the Scottish sunshine at the same time.

Based in Govan, Big Feed is a new venture set up by a number of the city’s street food vendors and the industrial indoor venue will once again play host to some of the best street food concepts and local brewers, set against a backdrop of live music.

The menu at the next market will showcase a diverse selection of high quality street food. From authentic Middle Eastern inspired cuisine, fresh Scottish seafood and Asian gastronomy to delicious burgers, hot dogs, wood fired pizzas and vegan fare there will be something for everyone to choose from.

Big Feed veterans Fire Dog, Street Food Putter Club, Charlie Mills Coffee, Nomad Pizza, Shrimp Wreck, Freddy and Hicks, Burrito, Haggisman, The Buffalo Truck and Thorntonhall Ice Cream will all be back by popular demand, while Chick + Pea, Ginger and Chilli and Snuggle Muffin will be dishing up delights for the first time.

The Prosecco Tap and Daffy’s Gin will provide the fizz and cocktails for the occasion, and a selection of distinct hand crafted Scottish beers will also be on offer over the weekend.

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 has supported the cause through making use of the venue and donating a share of the proceeds, as well as by commissioning some of the young apprentices in the programme to prepare for the events.

Ben Dantzic from Street Food Putter Club, one of the organisers behind Big Feed, said: “Big Feed is continuing to go from strength to strength and the event is really heating up with the launch of the new outdoor seating area this weekend.  Glasgow foodies have come out in full force showing there’s a real appetite for the events and we’re proud to be establishing Big Feed at the forefront of the street food scene in Glasgow.

“We’ve seen a real mix of people coming along, from groups of friends and couples to families and children, and it’s fantastic to be able to bring this exciting new experience again, while continuing to support a very worthwhile charity at the same time.”

The event will run from 12noon until 10pm on Saturday 6th May and from 12noon until 7pm on Sunday 7th May 2017. There is a £1 entry fee on the door and free entry for kids under 10 years old.

 Your nearest Subway station is Cessnock, less than a ten minute walk. With trains running every 6-8 minutes and all for just £2.80/ £1.35 (child) for all day travel with a Smartcard.
