This summer Liverpool’s first permanent street food market, Baltic Market, opened its doors in the iconic Cains Brewery situated in the heart of the Baltic Triangle. Independent Liverpool coined the concept which includes monthly events and live music, which has in turn helped propel the Baltic Triangle to be titled ‘hippest area in the UK’.
We visited on a busy Saturday afternoon with friends for some drinks, which inevitably turned into a small food feast. The market supports ‘best of local’ currently housing street traders Meet Frank, Evil Eye Burrito, Finca, Salt House Bacaro, Halloumi Halloumi, Slims Pork Chop Express, Little Furnace, Oktopus and The Midnight Delivery, the last being a particular favourite of mine when it comes to glutinous desserts – hello doughnut fries!!
The atmosphere was lively but not rowdy, supported by a resident DJ and had a craft beer bar serving locally brewed ales and lagers, plus a great cocktail selection making it a big hit.
Baltic Market is open between Thursday – Sunday and the food vendors are anticipated to change frequently, ensuring repeat visitors. A great place to while away the weekend and enjoy some great food and drink.
