An exciting monthly market serving quality independent street food has recently launched in Derby

Bustler Market is a new collaboration between Blok Knives, Hide Burger Bar and Love Derby, who have joined forces to bring the best street food to the city.

The Bustler team consists of street food fans Liv Pritchard, Ben Edmonds, Stu Costen and Tom Erskine, who regularly travel abroad to sample different types of cuisine. Now, they have put their skills and expertise into creating a new place for visitors to enjoy delicious street food in Derby.

The first market was held in formerly disused units at The Riverlights, St Peter’s Quarter in May. Each market will host up to eight traders with their own distinctive cuisines and specialities, plus a well-stocked bar and entertainment such as beer pong, table-top football, table tennis and live music.

Ben Edmonds, owner of Blok Knives, said: ‘We wanted to create something that Derby hasn’t seen before, and that idea goes through everything we’re doing, from the venue, to the type of food on offer, to how we decorate the space. We have been inspired by events like London’s Street Feast, Birmingham’s Digbeth Dining Club and Sheffield’s Peddler Market, and are excited to give Derby a version of its own.’

Stu Costen, managing director of Love Derby, commented: ‘It has been incredibly exciting to be doing something new and vibrant for the city. We think the location of Bustler Market will be a real asset in the summer, so people can enjoy what’s on offer all day before it becomes a major night-time destination after work. We want to create something that people of all ages can enjoy.’

Declan Stafford and Nico Irving of Deckards, who traded at the market, said: ‘As a local independent business we couldn’t be happier that Derby is stepping up to the plate and following the likes of Sheffield and London. Even better, it is holding its own! We have traded at both events so far and the response has been phenomenal.’

The next markets will be held on 28th-29th July, 25th-26th August and 29th-30th September. Visit www.bustlermarket.co.uk
