intu Merry Hill is inviting foodie fanatics to indulge in an array of delicious locally-produced delights at its second street food event of the year.

On Friday 27th September from 4pm – 10pm at The Waterfront, visitors will be able to enjoy award-winning street food including Thai, slow roasted meats, gourmet hotdogs, Texan BBQ meats and delicious steak by the ounces, as well as the brand-new addition of a vintage “twilight” market.

Some of the food available to try includes authentic home-made Thai Street Food by Buddha Belly, served by Masterchef contestant Sai Deethwa, as well middle eastern inspired kebabs and meze by The Middle Feast and some mouth-wateringly satisfying slow roasted meats by Sticky Beaks.

For those in search of a sweet after meal treat, the popular Edibubbles will be back on the canal serving their ultimate bubble waffles which were a real hit last time.

Alongside the glorious food on offer, the event will play host to intu Merry Hill’s inaugural vintage Twilight market, where fashionistas can pick up some vintage treasures or antique wonders while they’re snacking on some Black Country delicacies by visiting pop-up boutique Reloved Vintage & Retro and Tommy’s Treasures antique stall.

The free event is being held in partnership with Street Food Affair, who regularly hold foodie fairs in Stourbridge, with the event at The Waterfront seeing both new and returning traders ready to impress with their scrumptious locally-sourced produce.

Rob Pickersgill, marketing manager at intu Merry Hill, said: “We first hosted the street food event back in May and it was hugely popular with our shoppers. Following its success, this event is going to be even bigger so we can bring even more local food for our shoppers to enjoy.

“We’re really excited to welcome lots of new local traders to the event this month and try their tasty dishes. The addition of the vintage market offers visitors a shopping experience with a difference and we hope the event creates the perfect environment for families, friends and foodies to relax and enjoy some top-notch street food.”

Sarah New, founder of Street Food Affair, adds: “The Midlands is home to a hive of street food and specialist traders and it’s great to once again be giving them an opportunity to showcase themselves and share their passion for great food to their local communities.

“We’re also really excited to bring the Twilight market, offering fabulous vintage products including some vintage clothes brands that rarely showcase in the Midlands.”
