For one night only, the historic Limerick Milk Market is being transformed into a street food mecca for Urban Food Fest 2016, as producers, market traders, restaurants, and hotels come together for a unique Limerick food event.

The event on the evening of Thursday June 16 will be open to the public with free entry, and guests will purchase tokens as currency to enable them to sample taster plates from various stalls (€15 for 5 tokens).

A family friendly event, Urban Food Fest 2016 will take place in the Milk Market from 6pm until 10pm as the venue will be transformed to create a unique and festive evening atmosphere that will showcase some of the best food and drink Limerick has to offer.

Inspired by the culture of international street food, the food offering will also have an Irish twist and everything will be local from Limerick including meat skewers hot off the grill, freshly rolled sushi, pulled Limerick pork, steaming paella, curries, seafood pasta, sliders, Mexican tostados, herring and gravlax tasters, and even a Limerick cheeseboard, and there’s lots more with over twenty Limerick food businesses taking part. Limerick craft beers and local lemonades will make the perfect accompaniment and all can be finished off with sweet offerings from local artisan chocolate and confectionery producers (which are bound to be a big hit with the kids!)

There will be games for the kids too and entertainment for the evening will be courtesy of The Limerick Lady female-fronted event of music, poetry, and dance.

Limerick Food Group is a voluntary group of people working with food in Limerick and wanting to promote it together. Since the start of the year, they have been encouraging people to use the hashtag #bialuimní online to support Limerick food and Urban Food Fest 2016.
