Slow Food Norwich Christmas Food Fest on Terre Madre Day

Slow Food Norwich and Anglia are very pleased to be one of the supporters of the Christmas Feast event organised by the Norwich based Feast on the Street group of street food traders which is being held at the Shoe Factory Social club in Norwich on Saturday 10th December. The Shoe Factory is a large warehouse space given over for community use, with plans to redevlop the building in 2017. Norfolk Food and Drink a major promoter of Norfolk food and producers are also a supporter of this first event of this type to be held by Feast on the Street in Norwich.
The event is being held at this fantastic venue near the centre of Norwich and will be open from 4 in the afternoon until late and there will be a wide range of traders and street food vendors on site during this early Christmas themed party!
Feast on the Street is a large group of independent collective of street food traders based in the city of Norwich and the surrounding areas in Norfolk, the group came together in 2013 and there are now over 15 members including Natural Born Grillers, Proper Pizza company, the Duck Truck, Totem and The Nags Head mobile bar.




Slow Food Norwich and Anglia have been invited to have several of their members who are also food producers take part at the event including Debby from Chilli Fundamentals who are one of our Slow Food Anglia Approved business scheme members. We will also have two other Slow Food producers coming to the event including the local olive oil company Olivaverde who import olive oil from Italy mainly sourced from Slow Food Italian members.
The Christmas Food Fest event will also have music later in the evening and the whole festival will have the feel of it being much more like one big Christmas party that just a regular food and drink festival.
The event is already priving popular with Norwich residents and community groups and the Facebook Page for the Christmas festival has full details of the traders and others taking part, all of us at Slow Food are looking forward to being part of this exciting evening in Norwich!
