The gates of the much-loved Glasnevin street food market will open once again on this Thursday (May 28) at 12 noon.
They’ve made some adjustments, of course, to get your favourite street food to you as safely as possible. All vendors are open for takeaway only and there will be restrictions regarding the number of people in the yard picking up food and social distancing queuing systems in place, with many of the vendors are available on delivery order apps, detailed below.
With its canal-side location, however, there is ample opportunity to enjoy your favourite street food al fresco.
Trevor O'Shea, founder of the Bernard Shaw and Eatyard says "We're very excited and optimistic to get things back up and running. It's going to be a challenge for the first while as we adapt, but we're eager to make progress. To any vendors, chefs or festival operators out there, if you’re looking for a new start, get in touch, we have a new site on the way later this year, or rotating spaces free in the current location''
Two new vendors will join the line-up.
The utterly delicious Village Pizza is setting up shop serving wonderful wood-fired pizza topped with the best Irish and Italian ingredients. (You may know them from their brilliant Belfry pop-up in Stoneybatter). Coffee aficionados 3FE will also be in the yard doling out perfect coffees and tasty pastries.
And Eatyard is delighted to welcome back the rest of the crew: La Cocina Cuevas are back with their tasty Californian Mexican vibes and plenty of tacos. Vegans will be well looked after as The Saucy Cow re-opens serving all-vegan comfort foods and Janet's are back with their irresistible line up of dumplings, bao and rice bowls. In a few weeks raw and vegan heroes My Goodness return with their stellar lineup of ferments, bright and tasty food, fresh kombuchas, loaded nachos and some irresistible treats.
The adjoining Bernard Shaw will also be opening up for food and drinks, takeaway and also delivery. The rest of the Bodytonic family are slowly getting things back up and running with The Back Page, Wigwam, Fowl, and The Square Ball all now available for collection and delivery. More details here.
It’s also time to turn rubbish into beer again as Bin It To Win It is also back up and running. Collect a Brewtonic bin bag from Eatyard or The Bernard Shaw, fill it with any rubbish created from folks hanging out by the canal, bring it back to The Bernard Shaw where they will dispose of the rubbish and you’ll get a free Brewtonic beer/drink. Brilliant!
