So many mobile traders, itinerant hawkers, well-oiled festival trailers and regular market pitches all over Britain – and now, at last, a place for them all to come together. eat.st is all about driving British street food forward and it seeks to act as a hub for this relentlessly defiant industry: the old school, the new wave and all those great characters taking part in this edible street theatre that is as old as time itself.

    Hey just found your site and I love it! I think it’s great that so much is happening with British Street Food at the moment. I’m in Korea at the now but planning on getting VERY involved when I get back!

    Need some advice guys. I am doing community based work in the mile End area and have been asked by locals to look into setting up a regular street food event in Mile End park.
    how would i go about doing that?

    Hi there! This might not be the right place for this comment, but I couldn’t figure out where else to put it. You might be interested in how street food has transformed urban spaces in Portland, Oregon….. recently ranked as #1 in street food by US News and CNN Travel (of course, US news sources, so take it with a grain of salt). FoodCartsPortland.com is a great blog to get the scoop on the carts, and my book Cartopia: Portland’s Food Cart Revolution chronicles the history and revolution of the carts (http://portlandfoodcartsbook.com/).

      Hi Kelly, great to hear from you – love what you’ve done in Portland and have checked out Cartopia in my urban studies research. If London could grab a bit of Portland’s progressiveness we’d really be cooking with gas. Stay in touch!
