‘Full Moon’ Street Food Market

IMG_1764

On Friday 11th August, Bishop Auckland’s ‘Full Moon’ Street Food Market returns, building on its first successful event last month.

Organised by The Durham Street Food Project in association with both Durham Markets and Bishop Auckland Market.

Last month’s event was a roaring success, around 9 or 10 food and drink vendors attended, and were supported by 3 acoustic performances throughout the evening.

It was great to see the Bishop Auckland Market Place a hive of activity, enjoyed by many local residents, and visitors to the area which included the Kynren show.

It was nice to see, there were many families and friends socialising within the central point of our town, soaking up the atmosphere, whilst enjoying some fabulous culinary food and hand crafted beers too.

It was a good opportunity at the end of the week to come together and enjoy a good event and catch up with people I hadn’t seen in awhile.

For me, I think this street food market compliments the town’s offerings, bringing more residents and visitors into the market place, with pubs, cafes and restaurants open providing any visitors with an alternative choice, or an opportunity to go on somewhere after.

Hopefully an event that will continue to be supported and become a monthly event in the future too.

The above images were of some of the above businesses who attended last month.

The full attendees list returning to the street market tonight are:

Heading to the event by car?

Don’t be deterred.

Yes there is another fantastic performance of the Kynren show tonight, but there are still many car parks to choose from, you may even wish to buy last minute tickets and go along to the show too, it’s highly recommended.

Castle Chard Car Park

Victoria Avenue Car Park

Kingsway Car Park

Tenters Street Car Park

All of the above Durham County Council car parks are free after 6pm, or follow the boards for payment structures prior to 6pm.

Whilst you are here you may wish to take a look in the old McIntyre’s shop in Newgate Street, where Bishop Auckland College have had an Arts Exhibition throughout the Summer.

Tonight they are accompanied by musicians performing until 8pm.

Alternatively, you could also pay a visit to Fore Bondgate businesses Gillian Arnold Boutique were you can see the finished article of their ‘On The Map’ project.

And Bondgate Gallery taking in their impressive collection including this outstanding Kynren painting by owner Eric Thompson.

Whatever the weather it should be another fantastic event, come along and support Bishop Auckland.
