Peddler Market Launches Today

A street food and maker market brand new to Leeds is one of the country’s leading street food events.  Peddler is expanding into the City at Project House, an independent and locally owned event space within walking distance from the City Centre.

Originally launching in Sheffield in 2014, Peddler has grown into one of the country’s biggest and longest-established street food markets of its kind. The event will take place over two days, opening 5pm – 11pm on Friday 12 April and 12pm – 10pm on Saturday 13 April.

Visitors do not need tickets to enter the free event and will be able to purchase beers, spirits and cocktails from the multiple bars on offer.

Among the vendors will be street food traders serving cuisine from across the world. Confirmed names include Birria Bandits, Big Mouth Gyoza, Only Jerkin’, New Yorkshire Pizza Co., Thatziki, Tikk’s Thai, Banquet 1415, Urban Cheesecake and Stripclub Streetfood.

Alongside the delicious food offering will be independent makers including local Leeds favourite Savvy Baker, fashion brand Sundaiz Clothing and Fae Candle Co.

Revellers will be able to enjoy the line-up of artists set to take the stage throughout the weekend. Acts that can be expected are DJ Dan Burridge, Mica Sefia, Phenicia and The Rushbonds, among others.

Younger visitors will be well-served by the appearance of Boomchikkaboom, who will be bringing the party with their mini raves, providing fun and good vibes for the whole family.

Lucy Bailey, Event Director at Peddler, said: “We are so excited to bring Peddler to Leeds for the first time. Ten years since our first market, the City becomes our fourth location following our recent expansion into Wakefield and Chesterfield.

Leeds is an incredible City, with some of the best cultural and musical heritage in the UK. It was an easy choice when deciding where we wanted to take Peddler next; not to mention hosting the event at Project House, an amazing venue that aligns with our ethos and values so well.”

Joe Hughes, Production Manager at Project House said: “Everyone at Project House can’t wait to welcome Peddler to the venue this week. It’s a great example of collaboration between organisations that share the same vision of creating safe, cultural and vibrant spaces that enrich the lives of the community. Obviously, we’re equally excited to try the fantastic food that’s on offer!”
