Christmas beckons and as the festive markets begin setting up in cities across the UK, there is a little twitch, this side of Birmingham. King's Heath wakes up, and raises the question of 'why?' and offers something else: King's Heath Streetfood Market Christmas Lights.
This promises to be the best streetfood market they've held yet - it is Christmas-themed, after all. Food Yule Love as well asTwist and Snout are only a couple of the fifteen food stalls which will have had their ovens warming up, readying themselves for the hungry lot who descend upon the market.
I've been to a handful of the BYY streetfood events, and without fail, they deliver. I know the organisers, and they hand pick the vendors, simply based on how good their food is. Stipulations are tight, and frustratingly only the one has been divulged; apparently all of the vendors have to offer something significantly 'different', to the other food vendors. By 'different', the organisers mean in terms of flavour, the way it is served, but also the certain companies ethos. If they tick all those boxes, they're going to be there.
The line up looks pretty special this month, and I can gladly say Bourneville Waffle Company are back. Time and time again the Waffle Co. churn out, perfect, squidgy, moreish waffles, which are simply, fantastic.

This month isn't just about food - it is Christmas after all - 6 man (and one woman) band Dirty Old Folkers, will be playing their one of a kind, folky, bluesy, jazzy, slightly rocky, tunes, for your pleasure.
Even if the music isn't your bag, this eighth instalment of the streetfood massive is going to be an entertaining one, least of all you'll be enjoying some of the best food in the Midlands.
