Inspired by Portabello Road, Devonshire Market has different vibe unlike any other in the North. Spend the whole afternoon, and be completely absorbed in the atmosphere; sip a cocktail, find a bargain, and fill your tummy with fabulous foodie treats. The market is a cool mix of talented designers, makers and creators. There’s a range of stalls stocking vintage, reworked fashion, handmade arts and crafts, jewellery, antiques, records, farm produce, street food, and lots more.
Opening at 11am and closing at 6pm each market, comes with a twist, whether its live music, street art, a gourmet food court, magic, or cool DJ sets, you can always count on finding something that you didn’t expect!
The best meals ever eaten weren’t in Michelin-starred restaurants – they were on the streets. With its hole-in-the-wall falafel shacks serving up fat pittas, stuffed with hummus, pickle and broad beans Bethlehem offers some pretty good vendors while the streets of Mandalay, offer the tastes of fishy noodles – for breakfast – still salty from the sea. Street food is exciting. But you wouldn’t say that of street food in Britain. Until now.
In the old days, British street food meant cheap sausages and over-fried onions, served off rusty metal handcarts. But that’s changing. And about time too. For a nation that’s stacked with food magazines and food programmes, we’ve run out of excuses. Our food isn’t a joke any more – we’ve got more three-starred Michelin restaurants than Italy, so it’s about time we got our street food sorted too.
The multi-cultural nature of Sheffield has enhanced the popularity of street food in the city. The catering industry has traditionally been one of the most accessible to people moving to the area from other countries as can be seen in the popularity of Chinese food, Indian curries, and kebabs from Turkey or Greece. The aromas, flavours and sheer theatre of alfresco food preparation combined with a seated food court and varied program live music, DJ’s & entertainment make each Devonshire market the perfect place to ‘grab a bite’.
