New monthly street food event GRUB Food Fair launches at Runaway Brewery

Street food events company GRUB have announced a new collaboration with Runaway Brewery to launch their first regular monthly event - GRUB Food Fair

All the action will take place at Runaway Brewery in the Green Quarter – a stone’s throw from the Marble Arch pub, Victoria Station and the newly opened Exchange Square tram stop.

The event will bring together the high quality range of independent street food traders who are a key part of GRUB events together with the freshest ales associated with the growing popularity of Manchester brew taps.

Street food traders include Boerewors Bloke (traditional Dutch sausage grilled South Africa style), No Tacos (brand new trader serving up fusion tacos mixing up world cuisine with the classic Mexican street snack), Chaat Cart (real Indian street food specialising in dosa) and Blawd Co (amazing bakehouse dishing out modern doughnuts, bakes and cakes currently supplying Common Bar, Rapha & North Tea Power).

As you might expect, Runaway will be supplying the beer fresh from the tanks, including firm Manchester favourites their IPA and Pale Ale, together with a number of specials. On top of the beer offering there will also be a second bar serving up great wine, spirits, ciders and soft drinks.

Whilst guests enjoy the cracking food and drink they’ll also be listening to some of Manchester’s best alternative DJs playing soul, funk, folk, psychedelia and plenty more.

“It’s a fantastic feeling to finally have a space where we can grow an event month after month,” said GRUB director,Jason Bailey. “Not only that, but we’re stoked to be working with one of Manchester’s best brewers. We believe this has the potenial to be great for Manchester’s food and drink scene but more importantly add another exciting element to this growing community in Angel Meadow and The Green Quarter.”

GRUB Food Fair is free and starts on Saturday, 19 March 2016 12PM – 10PM
