Bristol’s a competitive city when it comes to being creative and the street food scene is no different.

Here’s the inside scoop on what we’re looking for.

HOW IT WORKS

We’re always on the look-out for brilliant street food businesses. To find out what we think it is that makes a great trader, please have a read of the information below and the buoy way.

If you think you’re ready to rumble then you can submit an expression of interest, here.

It’s a competitive market and spaces are often limited but if your business is a good fit, we’ll let you know when an opportunity to trade comes up.

CONTENT IS KEY

Engage with the application and tell us what makes your food streets ahead of the others. We want to hear your story, your vision and all the little details you care about. One word answers don’t cut the mustard.

PROVENANCE AND PACKAGING.

We’re looking for street food that’s out of this world but doesn’t harm the planet. Local means: small scale suppliers, independent business, ethical sourcing, free-range, organic and reduce air miles. Local doesn’t mean your local supermarket.

READY TO HIT THE STREETS

If your business isn’t ready to go, don’t apply just yet. Due to demand, we need to see that your application is complete and ready to rumble. If you have any questions about getting started, we’d love to hear from you by email.

THE REAL DEAL

We’re looking for traders with a strong, well-refined street food concept. That means a menu that’s been tried and tested, an active social media presence need and a complete, professional set up. No garden gazebos, flimsy frontages or wonky menu boards.

MAKE SURE TO VISIT THE MARKET FIRST

Be sure to come and see our markets before you apply. You’ll get a good understanding of the vibe, location, standards and the traders are mostly happy to answer any questions you might have about getting started.

FEEs

Pitch fees vary across our events – with the Harbourside Market rate set at £60 per day (a 3kW electricity hook-up costs £6).
