Protein are turning their whole street into a Christmas Market for three days in mid-December. Lots of events and attractions are planned - see the flyer above and the details below. There have been other events in Hewett Street, for example last year's Dante's Fried Chicken, so it's bound to be lots of fun and lots of it is for good causes.
"You may remember our Hewett Street Block Party, where over 3,000 of you came through for a full day summer spectacular complete with raffles, food trucks, and cameos from ODB, Ghostface and RZA. This Christmas, we're upping our festive food game with a 3 DAY CHRISTMAS MARKET!
From the 14th of December, our 18 Hewett Street space will be turned into a Winter Wonderland of Culinary Delights. Mince-pie Popcorn and edible Christmas cards by Animal Vegetable Mineral, Choco Smoked Walnuts by Lily Vanilli, a super special Christmas Pudding from St. John, mouth watering pickles, sriracha, kimchi and jerky from F.A.T., and bad boi salami hampers from Picco Salumi ...
And that's not the half of it. We've got surprises coming from the likes of Elliot's, London Borough of Jam,Monster Supplies, and Gelupo plus many more.
And of course, no Protein event would be complete without a festive tipple. Expect bottled Christmas booze from The Boilermaker, We Are Noble craft beer & fine wines and kickstarter cuppa wonder Good & ProperTea throughout the three days.
Buying a gift for someone else? Try our donation based gift wrapping service, with paper designs by the ludicrously talented GIF pioneers Reed+Rader, comic artist Joe Kessler (whose show is on at 18HS right now!) and jewellery designer Alice Waese. All profits go to the wonderful Foodcycle charity, so when you're buying your third bottle of Dante Fried Chicken Sock-It-To-Me Apricot Hot Sauce you'll be helping a good cause too.
The Protein by DunneFrankowski coffee shop is open as usual, serving Irish coffees along with sellling their exclusive handpicked Christmas Coffee Box. We've just got a bunch of new arrivals at The Shelf at Protein as well: Bompas & Parr's latest book FEASTING, Dante Fried Chicken’s Ride or Fry, and the latest issues of Lucky Peach, ACQTASTE, Gather Journal, The Gourmand and Wilder Quarterly.
Finally, a selection of limited edition prints from previous shows at 18 Hewett Street will be available, and we've got plenty of Protein gifts including the brand new 2013 Protein Calendar, Bompas & Parr ouija board tea towels, and Good & Proper tote bags to make sure you've got the best goodies this Christmas. come by from12pm on Friday where we'll be serving Family turkey tacos, Lily Vanilli absinthe hot chocolate and The Boilermaker hot mulled cider to keep you fuelled.
Our friends at TOMS will be setting up a GIVE Shop at The Old Truman Brewery just off Brick Lane over the weekend too, where there'll be acoustic gigs and craft workshops, so make sure you drop by after!"
