Huge success for South African Food and Drink

Members Pierre and Val run My New Butcher & Deli – an African butchers and food shop now based in Alwoodley (previously in Leeds Kirkgate Market).

On 7th June 2015 they held a South African Food & Drink day. It started at midday, but it was so overwhelmingly popular that by 3pm all the stalls had sold out of food!

“It was a total surprise to see so many locals there, as well as some people who came from Derby for it. What I did was get the stall holders to make small portion so you could have a Bunny chow and all the other foods,” Pierre told us.

Pierre returned home to a full inbox of emails asking for the next event, and requests from new stall holders, even some from Manchester.

“There is just so much interest for this one I think we might have to have it on the football field!”

So get the date in your diaries folks – the next South African Food and Drink event will be on 16th August 2015!
