Street Food Union has officially partnered with Brixton Village with the aim of offering more new street food vendors a foot in the door, as well as the support they need to make their businesses a success. Its team is working with Brixton Village to mentor and support fledgling traders wanting to explore a career in food.
The partnership will initially support a number of individuals, including two locals who won the Brixton Kitchen competition last year. It is run by Brixton Village with the promise of providing local chefs looking to launch food businesses within the area the support needed to build a long-term food presence.
Nick Willoughby, founder of Street Food Union, said: “We are incredibly excited to form this partnership with Brixton Village and to be able to support local entrepreneurs in realising their ambitions to become street food traders. The concept of mentoring food businesses who work with us is something right at our core – and has been since day one – but we are excited to be able to expand this offering from our existing base in Soho and so extend our offering to more future traders.
“Brixton, and especially Brixton Market, is a vibrant and exciting food scene and one I, having grown up in the area, can’t wait to get more involved in.”
