Grab your lunch on the go from one of these delicious local market traders.
After quite the regeneration, Trinity Market is back open for business, having re-emerged as a foodie haven with a host of street food goodness to tickle your taste buds.
Situated in the peaceful surroundings of Trinity Square, the market is perfectly placed for picking up lunch on the go and enjoying the impressive sights of Hull Minster and its ambient mirror pools. On damper days, watch the world go by in the market’s indoor seating area, surrounded by the aromas of fresh food.
If all of this has got you feeling peckish, read on to find out what you could be tucking into at Trinity Market.
Perfect for veggies and the health-conscious, Falafia serves up fresh falafel and an array of other delicious street food specials, from lentil dahls to soups and salads.
Choose from regular or chilli and garlic falafel, then pick your wrap from a selection including beetroot, spinach and Mediterranean herb before layering up with a choice of two salads and a whole range of sauces. If that’s not enough, you can always add in some halloumi or guacamole for even more flavour.
A standard wrap will set you back around £3.50, which is an absolute steal for the level of quality and flavour. We’re pretty sure you’ll agree.
Satisfy those lunch time cravings with a hunk of delicious pizza courtesy of Hull’s Cone Queen.
Priced under £4, choose from the Queen Supreme (chicken garlic and mushroom), Queso de Cabra (goats cheese, red pepper and red onion), Triple C (chorizo and chicken) and the Cretian (feta cheese and red onion), and prepare to be blown away.
These tasty cones are convenient to carry if you’re on the go, but if you have a little more time, take a seat and treat yourself to a side order of fries – we recommend sweet potato.
SHOOT THE BULL
A firm fixture on Hull’s festival scene, Shoot The Bull has taken up permanent residence in Trinity Market with its award-winning, gourmet street food.
So what’s on offer? Take your pick from: flat iron steak sandwiches; fried chicken wings; beef burgers; slow cooked pork belly; poutine; tiger prawn and halloumi flatbreads and a range of breakfast muffins.
With the average meal costing between £5 and £7, Shoot The Bull is a little pricier than most, but we guarantee it’s worth every penny.
Sometimes a good sandwich is exactly what you need at lunch time, which is where Trinity Delicatessen comes in, serving home comforts from tuna mayo to chicken and bacon, ham salad and more.
If you’re after a light bite, pick up a delicious slice of quiche or a traditional sausage roll for a bargain price. And if you fancy something hot, go for a steaming jacket potato with your choice of fillings from the counter.
Offering service with a smile and sarnies that don’t break the bank (£2-£3), you can’t go wrong.
Bringing Italian home cooking to the streets of Hull, Alessandro’s is your one stop shop for yummy pasta, pizza, calzone, focaccia and arancini – all for under £4.
Having recently expanded into sweet treats, you can now head to Alessandro’s to get your sugar fix and sample authentic cannoli, tiramisu, croccante and crostata. Form an orderly queue, please!
JANEY’S FOOD SHACK
With plenty of loyal customers, gorgeous food and super affordable prices, you’d be a fool not to give Janey’s Food Shack a try.
For just £2.50, you can get your hands on fresh ham salad encased in a tasty tasca bread, or if you’re feeling a little more adventurous, try one of Janey’s Bombay sausage rolls or goats cheese and roasted veg lattices.
Offering great service on top, Janey’s Food Shack provides the perfect pick me up to get you through the longest of days.
Once you’ve filled your boots with delicious food, pop to Caffeinated for a coffee that’s sure to pull you right out of your food daze and fix you up for the afternoon.
Coffee comes directly from local roaster The Blending Room, and a good cup shouldn’t set you back much more than a couple of pounds.
While you’re there, try to resist the temptation to buy one of the lovely homemade flapjacks, biscuits and cakes on display…or give in to temptation like we do and treat yourself!
Trinity Market is located on Trinity House Lane, Hull Old Town and is open Monday to Saturday.
