Street food markets and pop-ups are booming in Manchester – whatever the weather.
And now five of our best have been recognised by the national British Street Food Awards.
These five have won the hearts – and tummies – of people across their region, and will now go through heats, along with other businesses from Edinburgh, Leeds, Brighton, Belfast and Birmingham.
The ultimate British champion is set to be named at the British Street Food Awards in Manchester on September 16 and 17, then on to the European awards in Berlin.
So here are our runners and riders – if you haven’t tried them, get to it.
