Back in the beginning when I first started this blog, my main goal was to share my love for my local community and document the lovely eating places I discover along the way. Although small, Middlesbrough is a fantastic area for events and one thing in particular that I’ve been loving over this past year is the monthly farmer’s markets taking place across the North East. Here I’ve been able to purchase homemade and locally grown produce right on my doorstep. I believe in supporting independent traders and much prefer the quality products they have to offer.
With the likes of Stewart Park farmers market, Bishop Auckland food festival and the Orange Pip market, I’ve now got a real taste for street food, freshly cooked before your eyes. One of my all time favourite street-style food dishes has got to be pizza created in an authentic wood fire oven. Since discovering Scream for Pizza at Festival of Thrift last year, I’ve been craving their Brooklyn Bee pizza drizzled in their chilli honey.Another fantastic foodie festival is arriving in Teesside this coming weekend called Eats from the Street. Taking place at Teesside Park* between Mothercare and Superdrug, the event is set to provide weekend shoppers with a fun variety of street style food. Having visited Eats from the Street during their first year back in 2014, I’m excited to see what’s in store for us Teessider’s this year.
As you can probably guess, I’m extremely excited to hear that there is going to be a pizza trader there that goes by the name The Dough Rollers. They are going to be rolling out some fantastic individual pizzas created in their 500 degree wood fired oven that enables them to create a crisp yet chewy base to resemble authentic Italian pizza. I’m also looking forward to seeing Wilma’s Cupcakery who will be serving up some amazing cake-topped milkshakes.

Some of the other confirmed vendors include: The Pork Store (artisan hot dogs), Beacon Burgers, Kar Soi (traditional Vietnamese dishes), Toro (Spanish barbeque), Perissia Food Box (Persian cuisine) and Ruby’s Street Kitchen (Mexican street food). A brilliant variety of foods that I’m sure is going to make the decision on what to have for lunch a real tricky one! Let me know in the comments if you’re going to be attending this event this weekend and tell me what what favourite kind of street food is.
The Eats from the Street foodie festival takes place Saturday 8th July and Sunday 9th July at Teesside Park from 11pm – 6pm.
