Food Walk & Poetry Trail @ Oastler Market

Food Walk
Come to the most talked about market in Bradford with Oastler Traders, Wur Bradford & The Sparrow Cafe as your guide. As Bradford City kicks off so does Oastler Market with its first Urban Food Forage, if you’re an experienced foodie or complete newbie this is the food walk for you. Meet the traders who can show you the true secrets within the market and taste the many foods. After the forage we finish at The Sparrow Cafe with a platter of food and a craft beer. The Sparrow Cafe gets all its food produce from the Market throughout the year, this is absolutely FREE but spaces are limited.

Tour highlights:
– Go around the world through taste, get to try food from the small traders of Oastler.
– Discover the ‘Lost Art of Market Shopping.’ How to shop in a market from your Vegman, Fish monger and Butcher
– Look at seasonal and local produce including exotic produce from around the world and how to cook with them
