Food Rocks Lewes

I'd heard of Food Rocks as they ran the Weald on the Field food festival in Uckfield this summer and having met some of their usual vendors at Joy Festival, I heard about their regular food market in Horsham but I only recently realised they also run one in Lewes every 2nd Sunday of the month and it's obviously much closer for us!

We went along to check it out with the twins and weren't disappointed!  It was set up on the main pedestrianised area of the High Street and had plenty on offer to tempt us.  We are all big foodies in our family so we love to find new food markets and love street food in particular.  It's taking us a while to discover more variation in the food around where we live now.  It used to be so easy in Glasgow where we had SO much choice with new restaurants opening all the time and so many tastes covered.  In Uckfield we're lucky to have some great pubs offering good food plus we've got Italian covered, Chinese and now Thai.  Nik and I love Chaula's in Lewes for Indian food but we have missed having more variety.

At Food Rocks we were spoilt for choice!  We ended up opting for Punjabi street food from Jah Jyot, a vendor I first came across at Joy Festival, their curries are so delicious and authentic, we had one Amritsar Chicken and one Mamaji's Mutton curry to share, they are so good!  The twins were wolfing them down despite being pretty spicy (they made all our noses run)!  As the twins ate so much of our two mains, we were still hungry which was a great excuse to try another dish from one of the other vendors we'd been attracted to, Kabak.  They serve Middle Eastern foods and we chose a portion of Halloumi fries which came served with a lovely salad, pomegranate molasses, pickles and some nicely spiced rice & lentils.  They also had pulled lamb which looked amazing so I think I'll be trying that next time!

Al the Pieman was there who we've also met at a couple of festivals and I had a lovely chat with Anna of My Little Gluten Free Kitchen who we met at Firle Vintage Fair, she'd almost sold out of everything!

There was also scandi food, burgers, bacon & brie rolls, marmalades, cordials, scotch eggs, pates... So many lovely foods on offer plus jewellery, live music and garden ornaments.

I'm excited to check out what's there next month!
