Street food and independent makers market to launch its fourth location

A new street food and maker market is set to launch in Leeds later this week.

Street food events company, Peddler, is expanding into the city on 12 April at Project House, an independent and locally owned event space within walking distance from the city centre.

The event will take place over two days, opening 5pm to 11pm on Friday 12 April and noon to 10pm on Saturday 13 April.

Visitors do not need tickets to enter and will be able to purchase beers, spirits, and cocktails from the multiple bars on offer.

Among the vendors will be street food traders serving cuisine from across the world.

Confirmed names include Birria Bandits, Big Mouth Gyoza, Only Jerkin’, New Yorkshire Pizza Co., Thatziki, Tikk’s Thai, Banquet 1415, Urban Cheesecake, and Stripclub Streetfood.

Alongside the food offering will be independent makers including local Leeds favourite Savvy Baker, fashion brand Sundaiz Clothing and Fae Candle Co.

People will be able to enjoy a line-up of artists set to take the stage throughout the weekend. Acts which can be expected are DJ Dan Burridge, Mica Sefia, Phenicia, and The Rushbonds, among others.

Lucy Bailey, event director at Peddler, said: “We are so excited to bring Peddler to Leeds for the first time. Ten years since our first market, the city becomes our fourth location following our recent expansion into Wakefield and Chesterfield.

“Leeds is an incredible city, with some of the best cultural and musical heritage in the UK. It was an easy choice when deciding where we wanted to take Peddler next.

“Not to mention hosting the event at Project House, an amazing venue that aligns with our ethos and values so well.”

Joe Hughes, production manager at Project House, said: “Everyone at Project House can’t wait to welcome Peddler to the venue this week.

“It’s a great example of collaboration between organisations that share the same vision of creating safe, cultural, and vibrant spaces that enrich the lives of the community.

“Obviously, we’re equally excited to try the fantastic food that’s on offer.”
