This Sunday 23rd October Brum Yum Yum and The Vegan Grindhouse by Vegan Vox are re joining forces to bring you Hawker Yard goes Vegan.
The all Vegan street food event in the heart of Birmingham city centre is at Hawker Yard Pershore Street B5 4RR next to The Arcadian.
From 12-5pm, you can come and eat tasty vegan street food, buy vegan beers, wines, spirits and cocktails, meet like minded people, buy from vegan stalls and find our more about the fabulous work of their chosen animal rescue centre – Grace’s Rest who will receive a percentage of all takings on the day.
Following on from our two previous joint events with BRUM YUM YUM in Kings Heath which were vegetarian/vegan, that after campaigning this event is now all Vegan.
If the event is successful, hopefully a regular Vegan street food market in Birmingham will be hosted. so please bring all of your friends, vegans, vegetarians and not yet vegans. Families and dogs welcome and undercover seating provided.
If anyone is able to volunteer on the day to hand out flyers outside the Bull Ring, in the Arcadian, Snow Hill and at Grand Central, that would be great and will be rewarded with a free meal!
So support a fantastic event.
Also appearing at Hawker Yard are The Vegan Pizza company, Sri-Licious with Sri Lankan Street food, all vegan brewery Twisted Barrel ales for Vegan beer, Vegetropolis, for organic fruit, veg etc. Fresh juices and shots from U-Juice, and a range of gluten free cakes and bakes and desserts and fermented drinks bar from the Gut Hut.
Looks a fab line up!

As well as all the street food, local all-vegan brewery Twisted Barrel Ales are taking over the bars, and there will be stall with organic fruit and vegetables from Vegetropolis, animal-friendly clothing and cosmetics, a fermented drinks bar from The Happy Gut Hut, fresh juices and shots from U-Juice, and a range of vegan and gluten-free cakes and desserts.

Lisa Burbidge-Brown, Co-Owner of The Vegan Grindhouse and prominent vegan blogger said,
“We are thrilled to be bringing this hugely popular event to Hawker Yard. It’s a great way to showcase quality meat-free street food and raise money for a good cause at the same time, and now the event is all-vegan it’s even more exciting!”
“There’s some amazing vegan street food in Birmingham, from some of the most popular street food chefs. More people are looking to reduce or eliminate their meat intake due to health, environmental or ethical reasons and this is a great opportunity for people to try exciting new vegan and vegetarian food and see why going meat-free is a viable alternative diet and lifestyle.”
Hawker Yard Founder, Duncan Stanley added,
“Here at Brum Yum Yum we’ve always set out to prove that street food isn’t just about the meat-in-a-bun classics and I firmly believe that a lot of the best street foods out there are the vegan and veggie dishes. What better way to spend a Sunday than stuffing your face with some of the tastiest and most interesting meat-free meals in town?! Add in the vegan bar, the side stalls and the great vibes, and this is the animal-friendly street party that Birmingham deserves!”
So get down to Hawker Yard on Sunday 23rd October for a day of plant-based family fun at Hawker Yard Goes Vegan.
