Ever since I heard the news earlier this summer that the guys behind Independent Liverpool had got the premises to run Liverpool’s first street food market the Baltic Market, I’ve been desperate to go. My cousin Chris and his wife Anna had traveled up from London for the August bank holiday weekend to visit so I thought it was a perfect opportunity to go.
It was a gorgeous day and we made our way to the up and coming Baltic Triangle area of Liverpool via the Albert Dock. When we arrived at 2pm and the place was already bustling with life and people. The converted old brewery is lined with independent food stalls with a bar in the middle. It is filled with long tables and benches offering a casual dining experience. We managed to get a whole table to ourselves and got ourselves a drink. Chris, Steve and myself were on the beers, a nice selection – we had the Paulaner wheat beer. Anna was sold straight away by the Prosecco stall and Faye our designated driver had a freshly squeezed juice. We all took it in turns to have a wander round the stalls and currently there are about 8 traders all offering something tasty and unique. Some of our favourites were the squid and pop corn mussels from Oktopus, the chunky halloumi fries from Hafla Hafla and we finished off with a bubble waffle from the Midnight Delivery.
If you haven’t already been it’s definitely worth a visit, open Thursday through to Sunday every week.
