Good Evening guys,
I am officially in my final year of university. It feels strange to be back but I am definitely settled in my cute little flat with my flatmate.
As i’m back in Sheffield I really want to try new things and get to know Sheffield a little better as I spend my last year of student life here. We fancied spending a Friday Night somewhere different and not just one of the many nightclubs such as Leadmill or Corporation.
We ended up at Peddler Night Market. As you can tell from some of my previous posts I absolutely love a good food and drink market so when I heard about this one I just had to try it out.
Check out some of my previous posts here:
What is Peddler Night Market?
PEDDLER is based at 92 Burton Road, an ex-industrial site near Kelham Island.
It is a wonderful assortment of passionate businesses from bakers to artists and DJs to bands. They all arrive at PEDDLER on the 1st Friday & Saturday of each month. This month was their 3rd anniversary providing small businesses with an incredible opportunity to showcase their talents.
Ben Smith, Heather Gilberthorpe and Jordan Roberts help to put this together and create a different line-up each month. Sheffield is full of awesome independent cafes, restaurants and clothing shops. This market is a perfect opportunity to showcase all of these incredible businesses in one place.
It is such a popular event and again a really great opportunity for new or independent businesses to get their name recognised. Social media is a huge thing nowadays and everyone was snap chatting and instagramming their food, drinks and just the venue itself.
My boyfriend was visiting for the first time on that weekend so myself, Phil, my flatmate some of my course mates & my old flatmate from 1st year all met up for some food and drinks.
There was a slight queue to get in which is expected as to stop ‘overcrowding’ in the venue. It didn’t take us very long to get in and as soon as we did we got a drink for the bar.
There are plenty of great drinks to choose from and we settled for some delicious cider. Once we got out drinks we wandered around and looked at all the food stalls. There are so many options and I definitely struggled to choose what to have.
Here are some of the many options that we could choose from:
They offer incredible greek souvlaki wraps with high-quality, healthy ingredients. Me and my flatmate chose Kalimera as our food stall of choice and my goodness it was incredible. I could eat them wraps every single day, we had a chicken & halloumi wrap which was delicious.
Serving delicious Thai street food all fresh. They have won several awards including being the People’s Choice Winner’s of the British St. Food in 2016. Their great passion is cooking and they believe their food reflects that. Sai Deethwa started up the business around 2 years ago after being a contestant on Masterchef.
Homeboys was started up in 2015 by Masterchef finalist Pete Hewitt. I am seeing a bit of a trend here with Masterchef contestants moving into the wonderful world of street food. The Homeboys HQ operates from Nottingham and then operate from their converted van selling delicious asian street food including Karaage (Japanese Fried Chicken).
They are just three out of many varied options of food for you to choose and they are all wonderful in their own way.
The atmosphere in Peddler is great as there are just large groups of friends and families coming in together. Everyone can sit on the long benches enjoying the food and the live music. You just have to keep your eyes peeled so you can get sat down on the benches.
Also for your inner geek they have old arcade machines by the stage for you to have a go at Space Invaders.
I would advise if you go as a group to all try one of the different food stalls and you can try everything. I regret not trying more of the food stalls but I know I will definitely be going back and trying even more.
It is such a great alternative to a night out and it was really popular when we went at the start of the month so I would highly advise getting there and having an awesome night.
Take your friends, your family or even go with your work colleagues!
