Only a couple of months ago I posted about how it seemed that prospective street food traders were being denied the opportunity to bring their home-cooked fayre to the streets of Peterborough. Now however I’m glad to say it looks like street food has finally arrived!

Typically the reserve of busier cities like London, Manchester, et al, Peterborough now has vendors selling hog roast sandwiches, falafel and halloumi wraps and the obligatory slow-cooked pulled pork bap.

Chris Jones from The Full Boar has a swanky unit on Peterborough’s city market in a prime location facing the square in front of the passport office. Chris changes his menu daily according to what’s available from local butchers and fresh produce suppliers. Find out more about The Full Boar

Pork & Co from Dog in a DoubletPork & Co.

Over in Cathedral Square you’ll find the Dog in a Doublet running a pop-up pulled pork stall as part of the Peterborough Farmer’s Market (last Thursday of every month). Find out more about Dog in a Doublet’s Pork & Co

If all that meat is making you sweat, then head along Bridge Street opposite the court where we now have BoHo Street food cooking up meat-free options of wraps full of delights such as halloumi, falafel and houmous. Find out more about BoHo Streetfood


Hopefully the growing Peterborough street food scene will inspire future food-based entrepreneurs to start up a business and see existing successful street food sellers move into bricks-and-mortar retail units as their ventures grow. Maybe we will finally see a street food festival in the city centre or by the Embankment!
