Please your palate at Harringay Food Festival
7:00am Friday 14th August 2009
FESTIVAL organisers are searching for residents who are a dab hand in the kitchen to get involved with the Harringay Food Festival.
The first Harringay Food Festival, to be held in Green Lanes on September 20, promises to be a celebration of the cuisine, culture and history of the area.
Organisers are anticipating hundreds of people to flock to the one-day party and Haringey Council has pledged to close one of the roads so the street festival can really kick off.
Stalls are available for hire for food, information or arts and crafts.
Rob Chau, of Harringay Traders Association, said: “We want to celebrate all of the fantastic things Green Lanes has to offer with a tremendous variety of food and a range of interesting stalls.
“There will be hundreds of residents and visitors enjoying the fun on the day. Taking out a stall – whether to sell food, crafts and other goods, or to hand out information – will be the perfect opportunity to reach a captive audience for a very reasonable price.”
Councillor Nilgun Canver, chair of the Green Lanes Strategy Group, said: “The festival will be a fantastic event and I’m confident that we will see a great range of stalls reflecting the wonderful diversity of this area.
“We are looking forward to welcoming a variety of different hot and cold, sweet and savoury, international and local food stalls to help make the festival a success.”
