Fifteen & KERB's Foodie Christmas Market near Old Street

Jamie Oliver has teamed up with streetfood specialists KERB to host a streetfood party outside his restaurant Fifteen this Saturday 15th December.  You might remember that Fifteen were banner sponsors of Fifteen Street, the British Streetfood Awards in the summer.  Note that they'll also be collecting for charity on the day, so please bring a small gift with you on the day to give to the local community.

"We're all counting down the days until Christmas, but now there's another super-exciting date to put in the diary! Start Christmas early by wrapping up in your woolly scarf and bobble hat and heading down to Fifteen for a heartwarming Christmas market on Saturday 15 December from 11am-5pm.
To help us get in the festive spirit we've teamed up with the fabulous KERB, whose mission is to normalise great food by getting it out onto Britain’s streets. In among the tinsel and fairy lights will be some of London’s best street food vendors, all dishing up delicious treats. Stalls already confirmed include the Rib Man and his legendary rib sandwiches, Bell & Brisket who champion all things salt beef, the Pizza Pilgrims and their authentic pizzas with attitude, and Poppy Smadja and her wickedly indulgent tarts. Also joining us will be Green Goat, a 1995 school bus converted into an awesome British food-specialising machine, breakfast specialists Original Fryup Material, Rib Man (widely viewed as having the best ribs in London), Luardos and their festival-famous Mexian grub sold straight from their gorgeous vans, Dosa Deli, Angus, Kimchi Cult and their mouth-watering Korean-style fast food, and Southern-style street food specialists Anna Mae’s.
Once you've filled your bellies there will still be lots to do. We’ve invited down a carefully selected bunch of incredible producers, so you can pick up those last-minute foodie pressies and do a one-stop foodie shop for Christmas goodies. Stalls will include renowned smokehouse Hansen & Lydersen, who will join salumi kings Picco Salumi and Eat My Pies, who make delicious pies, stuffed with love (and other things, of course). Alongside these, we’ll be joined by Hackney’s famous Vadasz Deli, the ever-fancy Meringue Girls, and Violet. Once all the shopping’s done, you’ll be able to sip mulled wine and hot chocolate while enjoying some festive classics from local choirs.
Of course, Christmas is a time for giving, so we’re also asking everyone who comes along to the market to bring with them a small gift, food or otherwise, which will be given to poorer families in the local community to help them have a happy Christmas."
