Over the last few years, Birmingham has seen a huge increase in street food vendors and markets. Read on to see some of the best street food markets that the city has to offer.

Digbeth Dining Club

No street food piece on Birmingham would be worthy without mentioning Digbeth Dining Club. The street food pioneers have led the way for further markets and vendors to pop up across the city and the further region, and their weekly residency on The Rainbow Venues complex in Digbeth attracts hundreds of people every Friday & Saturday. Popular vendors include Buddha Belly, Low ‘N’ Slow, Bournville Waffle Co. and Habaneros.

DDC’s popularity has also seen them expand, with street takeovers in Kings Heath and Codsall.

Held at No21 Warehouse in Digbeth, Taste & Liquor’s street food paradise is open every Friday, as well as the last Saturday of the month. The venue, on Milk Street, just a short walk from Digbeth High Street, plays host to a wealth of unique food and drink traders and also offers 2-4-1 drinks between 5-7pm on Fridays.

Expect anything from slow-cooked Brazillian BBQ grills to Lebanese street food, all helped down with a range of beers, ciders, spirits and liqueurs from its many drinks vendors.

KingshEATh Streetfood Market

Held on the Village Square outside All Saints Church, KinghEATh Streetfood Market is a Brum Yum Yum celebration of restaurant-quality food at accessible prices. Combining unique street food with local fruit and vegetable vendors, the market brings together food, drink and live music on the second Saturday of each month.

Backed with a craft ale bar on a double decker bus, you really can’t go wrong here!

Hawker Yard

Inspired by Asian culture, Budapest ruin bars and European food markets, Hawker Yard is a brand new street food market on Pershore road in the city centre. Another Brum Yum Yum creation, Hawker Yard takes global inspiration for this truly local venture, which sits next to the popular Arcadian complex on the borders of China Town and Birmingham’s Gay Village.

Moseley Farmer’s Market

Okay, so Moseley Farmer’s Market isn’t strictly a street food market per se, but it’s still worth a mention thanks to the local food on offer! Taking place on the last Saturday of the month, this bustling market boasts more than 60 stalls, with everything from fresh local ingredients, ready-to-eat street food and cakes on offer.

All produce at Moseley Farmer’s Market is certified as locally reared, grown or processed, even the wine & beer, so why not head down for a Zebra burger and a pint?
