Grub Food Fair at Mayfield, Manchester, 3 May–29 September 2019, free entry - Visit now

GRUB is a street food and drinks events company, set up by husband and wife team Jason Bailey and Juliana Bailey in 2014 after a successful stint as street food traders.  The events provide an inclusive, festival style atmosphere, alongside exceptional food and drink from independent producers and chefs.

For the third year running, they will be returning to the Mayfield Gatehouse for the summer 2019 run of their award-winning street food markets. Situated at the back of Mayfield Depot, the site has increased in size to include more street food, a second bar, a dedicated kids play area and more seating. It offers a fantastic beer garden and is ideal for after work pints on a Friday, family eating out on Saturdays and laid back vegan brunches every Sunday this summer.

Top class street food will be the star of the show, with more traders than ever before

Top class street food will be the star of the show, with more traders than ever before. Friday will have six street food chefs while Saturday will boast eight classic GRUB regular traders (What’s Your Beef, The Ottomen, Chou Choux Patisserie, Parmstar, Bakeorama, Purely Pizza, amongst many more) alongside new GRUB traders made up of new local food heroes.  Expect burgers from Wagyu Lookin At, authentic South Indian cuisine from Dosa Love, smashing American comfort food from Redheads Mac N Cheese, rustic Italian piadina from Casa Rustica, Japanese okonomiyaki from Osaka Local and some of the best vegan Mexican food in the UK from Club Mexicana.

Alongside the existing bar pouring 12 keg lines and four cask lines of the best beer in Manchester and the north and the usual top quality wines, ciders and soft drinks a second express can bar is in the works which will be stocked with fantastic cans and bottles full of smashing local beer, lovely cider and even a specially produced new line of boozey sodas from local pop producer Steep Soda. This new addition promises to cut back the queues on the busy days.

The Grub Food Fair takes place every Friday and Saturday between 12 noon and 10 pm starting Friday 3rd May, Plant-Powered Sundays takes place every Sunday between 12 and 6pm.  The event is free entry and welcomes all comers including families and dogs. Full details of the re-launch event can be found on the Facebook event page here. The Mayfield Gatehouse is located at Baring Street, Manchester M1 2AD.
