Join the street food revolution at Street DinerBrighton’s hottest street food market, serving up diverse cuisine at affordable prices. The market was set up by cake baker Cristina Angus and her business partner Kate O’Sullivan in 2013, after they met at a farmers market in Hassocks and got talking about the emerging street food scene in Brighton. The original market, which can be found in the previously underused Brighthelm Gardens on Fridays between 11am-3pm, has been taking Brighton by storm ever since: racking up rave reviews and introducing Street Diner devotees to an assortment of culinary delights from around the world.

With a focus on showcasing local producers and fresh food, Street Diner creates a connection between its customers and their lunch, as they watch it being cooked right before their eyes. After strolling around to enjoy the sights and smells of the different stalls, you can tuck in for instantaneous enjoyment. Street Diner brings a whole new meaning to the words ‘fast food’. With stalls representing the best of the Brighton food scene, you can journey around the world: from spicy burritos to Middle Eastern veggie delights, fresh fish to home-baked brownies.

Following huge success at Brighthelm Gardens, in 2014 Street Diner launched a second market in front of Hove Town Hall: Wednesday lunchtimes between 11am and 3pm. The people of Hove now too can rejoice in the street food revolution!
