On the 21st April 2018 Birmingham’s Seasonal Markets returns with their first ever themed market, and you can expect lots and lots of cheese.
The event will be taking place in their regular stomping ground – The Bond Company, Fazeley Street, Digbeth.
A beautiful canalside venue, with cobbled courtyards, this is a beautiful and unique urban oasis and they’re excited to be hosting another Seasonal Market.
Street Food Galore..!
The street food line-up includes some of Birmingham’s favourites from halloumi fries to cheesecake waffles.
Streetchef will be doing what he does best in making halloumi fries - crunchy sticks of golden cheese.
In addition, self-proclaimed ‘purveyors of filth’ Original Patty Men will be bringing a double cheese burger special to the menu just for those attending the Cheese Festival.
English Indian will also be cooking up their famous Indian-style Halloumi Fish & Chips.
Seasonal Markets are also welcoming local chef Chris Hughes to the scene who will be making some seriously cheesy grilled cheese sandwiches.
Street Souvlaki will bring their 50 years of experience to their Greek Barbecue, and have developed some specials showcasing the best Greek cheeses in the business.
Recently voted Europe’s Best Street Food Trader, Baked in Brick will be bringing an awesome special to the table – triple cooked Mayan gold heritage potatoes, smoked burrata and Iberico face bacon.
Alongside these veterans of street food, the Cheese Festival will also be hosting their first pop up fondue restaurant, allowing attendees to take a seat and enjoy a pot of molten cheese fondue and take their pick from a range of bread and charcuterie to dip with.
As for desserts, the Bournville Waffle Company will be doing a cheesecake takeover – turning their entire menu into cheesecake specials!
To keep everyone hydrated, Seasonal Markets have invited Dig Brew Co. to bring their tap house to The Bond, offering some exciting new craft beers to enjoy.
Likewise, the Cocktail Caravan will be offering up some Spring time favourites as well as Prosecco by the glass and bottle.
For those wanting to pair their cheeses with great wines, there will be a well-stocked wine bar offering some award winning glasses and plenty of sparkling.
...And Everything that Complements Cheese
Aside from the exciting food & drink offering, Seasonal Markets will be hosting 10 exhibitors offering all sorts of cheese paraphernalia from cheese boards to chutneys.
Notably, Birmingham’s best cheese purveyors Anderson and Hill will be coming along to sell the best of the top cheeses from across the UK and beyond.
There will be traders bringing along all sorts of jams and chutneys, breads, pies & salads.
Top notch bakers, Bake will be bringing along a host of cheesy specials and Canapes by Gill will be representing all sorts of tarts and scotch eggs.
Artists, designers and makers will also be invited to fill the hall with an array of entirely unique crafts, gifts, designs, prints, clothing and homeware and showcase the best designs that Birmingham can offer.
Seasonal Markets' traders bring a whole other level of uniqueness to their festivals by bringing their local and hand crafted goods together from across the city – this event will be no different and we’re looking forward to seeing how the traders incorporate the cheese into their wares!
