Good Food Glasgow

#GoodFoodGlasgow

Street food from around the world will come to Glasgow city centre throughout April and May with Good Food Glasgow

This street food event will take place each Saturday in the Merchant City’s Brunswick Street for six weeks from 16 April and on each Friday in the Broomielaw for six weeks from 22 April.

Colourful street food vehicles from operators in central Scotland will offer everything from burgers, curries, American baking and gourmet sausage rolls to shellfish, fried chicken and vegan baking between 12am – 7pm to bring a taste of the exotic to the streets of Glasgow.

Other culinary delights at Good Food Glasgow include Indian, Korean, Mexican and Scottish street food, as well as home baking, seafood, ice cream, crepes and gluten & dairy-free food.

It’s quite frankly, about time Glasgow had a  street food market and I for one truly welcome this new initiative. We can say goodbye to dodgy burger vans and hello to gourmet trucks providing good quality, healthy food on par with places such as Edinburgh, Manchester and London.

Last summer, Glasgow City Council published a survey asking the people of Glasgow if they wanted to see a dedicated street food area come to the city. After over 2000 responses, Good Food Glasgow has been established in partnership with Scottish Enterprise, City Markets (Glasgow) and the Community Food Fund.

As this is the first of its kind in the city, to begin with, 12 trucks will operate from Brunswick St and 14 at the Broomielaw, and if successful, street food events such as this will return regularly.

Hopefully this will be the beginning of a permanent fixture in the city. There is a demand after all. Now all that is left is to find out what trucks will be appearing and grab my cutlery!

Hungry anyone? Do you welcome this new fixture to the Glasgow dining scene? Do you have a favourite Scottish food truck? Will you be checking it out? Let me know in the comments below!

By now, everyone should be aware of the devastating earthquake that hit Nepal at the end of April. Tragically, a second major earthquake struck just two weeks after the first which has left nearly 8000 dead and thousands more injured.…
