If you head down to the Exeter Guildhall on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday you’ll spot a cluster of street food stalls in the centre, surrounding the chapel. This was the beginnings of Street Food Exeter, and with its popularity they opened a second event down at The Quay. Called Exeter Night Market, it follows a similar thread with street food stalls but some live music too but happening less frequently.
Given the fact I’ve been such a fan of the Guildhall Street Food market I thought I’d give it a go and see what was making this event so popular. In fact the Night Market must be popular as they’ve added an extra night too. Full details can be found on their website www.streetfoodexeter.co.uk
The event itself is brilliant. World food traders, local food traders and Otter Brewery were all represented under the transport shed on the Exeter Quayside. The sun shone, the Otter Amber flowed and we had a lovely evening generally. Unfortunately, and this goes for anything that happens on the Quayside, there are cobbles and cobbles don’t generally bode well for people in wheelchairs.
Although we didn’t get to eat at this event (other reasons that I won’t go in to in this post), there are other events on the Exeter Street Food calendar to try, and its Friday today so I might head over to the Guildhall later and get my Hog Roast fill (they ran out last night)…
