Manchester Food and Drink Festival have compiled a truly mouth-watering selection of food traders for this year’s Manchester Day, along with some of Manchester's best breweries.
Pushing the boundaries of foodie innovation, the roster of traders ranges from delicious wood-fired pizza's from Proove Pizza, Korean fried chicken from Woks Cluckin', New York style bagels from Eat New York, not forgetting vegetarian and vegan offerings from Rockin' Buddha and BBC's Million Pound Menu contestant Wholesome Junkies. For those of you with a sweet tooth there'll be churros, dutch waffles and plenty of ice cream!
Bring an empty stomach as you may want to space your visits through the afternoon to try as much as possible between midday and 6pm, with stalls spread across three city centre squares – St Ann’s, Exchange and Cathedral Gardens.
Full list of traders in the notes to editors.
But don’t worry, there will be an equally brilliant offer when it comes to your liquid refreshment with some of Manchester’s finest beers on offer at each bar. If you're not a beer lover, there'll be wine and soft drinks available too.
Alexa Stratton-Powell, Festival Director of the Manchester Food and Drink Festival, said: “We're delighted to be supporting Manchester Day by curating a stellar line-up of Manchester's best street food stars. We have an amazing and ever growing food scene which has played a big part in the city's development. We're excited to be a part of Manchester Day and to showcase a first class food offering from Manchester's finest street food purveyors'
Cllr Pat Karney, Chair of Manchester Day, said: “The Manchester Day audience marches on its stomach, but food is one thing you do not have to worry about. The fantastic Manchester Food and Drink festival have thought of everything and then some. Bring your appetite to Manchester Day – your stomach will thank you.”
Manchester Day is on Sunday, 17 June from midday until 6pm. The parade begins at 1pm from Liverpool Road.
