Street food festival bringing flavours from across the globe to Broughton this weekend

Broughton Retail Park will bring street food flavours from across the globe to Flintshire this weekend, 17th and 18th June with its Eats from the Streets pop-up foodie festival.

The festival will see artisan vendors serve up a whole host of cuisines from around the world – from traditional Thai dishes and delicious Spanish paella, to sweet and savoury samosas.

Wilma’s Cupcakery will also be selling its signature cupcakes and cake-topped milkshakes.

Street food stalls will be serving up between 11am and 6pm on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th June.

Unlike other food festivals, visitors will be able to tuck into their food on board a converted double decker Routemaster bus, which has been transformed into a dining area.

Eats from the Streets is returning to the centre for a third time, following a successful debut in 2014.

Alan Barker, centre manager, said:

The Eats from the Streets concept was borne out of the pop-up festival and street food trends. As the popularity of both show no sign of slowing, it’s no surprise that we’re hosting the event again this year.

We’ve really enjoyed bringing new and exciting foods from across the globe to shoppers’ doorsteps, and this year’s event is shaping up to be even bigger and better – with more stalls and more flavours on offer!

It’s great to be able to support local traders alongside our national retailers.
