Pitches for street food in Cambridge
The first time I was introduced to street food was on my first visit to Singapore in 1994. I fell in love with this casual way of dining instantly. On our food walking tours, we include street food too. Mainly on the market, as the other markets are too far out to add them to our food walking tours. Street food can be found at one of the breweries and a quirky bottle shop too. Where do the street food traders pitch?
foodPark – various locations
The brainchild of Heidi White, co-founder of Eat Cambridge started this street food venture in 2014. She has passed on the rains to Rebecca Chong to spend more time with her family. foodPark is a collective of street food traders, which pops up at various locations through Cambridge on weekday lunchtimes. Check out their website to find out where they pitch.
Various locations around the train station
In front of the station, you can find a selection of street food traders and Pull Me Cheri. On Friday’s FoodPark pitchers here too. Head down to the Coop supermarket where you will find LingLing’s Steamkitchen serving food from Taiwan.
The local market in the city centre
In the city centre on the Cambridge market, you will find 7 days per week an excellent selection of street food traders. The management team of the city council only allows them a pitch if the quality of the food is good. So you can rest assured that you will get excellent food. Our favourites are the Falafel, Arepas, Malaysian food and the Paella.
Calverley’s Brewery on Hooper Street
On Thursday and Friday evening and on Saturday, our favourite brewer in Cambridge, Calverley’s Brewery offers excellent street food to pair with their craft beers.
Thirsty and Hungry on King Street
The team of Thirsty and Hungry in King Street offers street food on a rotating basis on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening from the smallest kitchen in Cambridge.
Thirsty Chesterton Road
The bottle shop Thirsty on Chesterton Road has 7 evenings per week street food traders pitching right in front of their shop. You don’t have to be drinking here to buy street food, but I would highly recommend it!
