Street food comes to Shrewsbury

I’m really excited to see the street food trend expanding outside London. And on 22 May, chef Marcus Bean is launching Eat Street in Shropshire’s medieval county town of Shrewsbury.

Among the eight traders that will be showcasing their street food will be seasoned street food favourites: The Beefy Boys from Hereford and London-based Dog Town London. They will be lined up alongside Shrewsbury’s Barkworths Seafoods, Eat Up’s big coffee van and Polly’s Parlour Vintage VW ice-cream van.

Add live music and entertainment and there will be a real festival vibe to the event. You can’t go home without one of Dogtown London’s Big Smokey hotdogs or a 12-hour smoked pulled pork bun.

Other flavours at the Eat Street Shrewsbury include wood fired pizza from the pizza Peddlers, hot dogs topped with chilli cheese from Dogtown London, fishy delights from Barkworths Shrewsbury Saint-Pierre stand, and ice-cream served from a vintage VW ice cream van called Florence.

* Eat Street, Shrewsbury will take place in the grounds of St Alkmunds church off Butcher Row, Shrewsbury on Friday 22nd May, 4pm-10pm. Entry will be free of charge.
