BROOKGATE HOSTS FOODPARK’S STREET FOOD FRIDAYS AT CB1

Brookgate in partnership with foodPark this week launch Street Food Fridays at CB1, offering high quality food and drink from unique pop-up stalls on Station Road every Friday from the 6th June.

Visitors and commuters will be able to enjoy the street food lifestyle with hot breakfast and coffee during the morning rush hour; burgers, steamed buns and byriani boxes for lunch and cupcakes for the sweet toothed, all within a short walk of the train station.

Traders including Steak and Honour, Two Little Cats Bakery, Guerrilla Kitchen, Inder’s Kitchen, and Warming Your Cockles Coffee will be taking part in the event and bringing the street to life every week as they serve their dishes out of their special stylised hot food vans and quirky pop-up stalls.

The pop-up trend has already proved successful with local restaurateur Franck Parnin, owner of Le Gros Franck and La Maison Du Steak, having set up a permanent stall on Mill Park serving French inspired dishes, which commuters, workers, residents and visitors have all enjoyed.

A spokesperson for Brookgate, said:
“CB1 will create a gateway for Cambridge, significantly improving the area around the train station and making a real difference for local residents, visitors and commuters alike. We believe that the Street Food Fridays will create a vibrant atmosphere around the area creating a great new food offer for Cambridge. We look forward to it becoming a part of the weekly calendar in Cambridge and hope we can get more traders involved and expand the market over the coming months.” 

foodPark Founder, Heidi White, said:
“We're thrilled to be working with Brookgate to bring street food to what is shaping up to be a vibrant new area of the city. We're delighted to be contributing to the great work that Brookgate, and the fantastic traders in the foodPark street food collective, are doing to enhance the offering on Station Road.”
