Drinks in the park, street food sizzling, crowds mingling and music playing. Sound familiar? If yes, it’s because the beloved Fork Food Market returns! And it has certainly been a long while since the Municipal Gardens of Nicosia has hosted the people’s favourite street food event as since the pandemic broke out Fork Food organisers have been unable to put one together. This April and May though it returns with some of its oldest food vendors and its usual groovy atmosphere.
The market will make its comeback on April 29, serving food between 7pm and 11pm with music and drinks on until late. Another two Fork Food events will follow the next month again at the Municipal Gardens on May 6 and 13 promising the same recipe for a fun, tasty night out.
“What can we really say after a more-than-two-years ‘forced’ break other than we couldn’t be more thrilled and excited to be returning!” writes the Fork Food team. “At times it felt like we would never be able to hold our beloved markets again and even now it is hard to believe. We missed doing this more than anything and we can’t wait to welcome you to our events once again. We know you missed us as well and we know that these past two years have been hard on practically everyone. Our return almost feels like a return to the way things were and so we gather that the first events will be epic!”
Because of this two-year break, the organisers decided to hold the first event with some of their oldest vendors making April 29’s market a kind of ‘classic’ Fork. Expect to see the vendors you’ve tried and loved many times in the past while in May’s events two new additions will join. Information on the street food vendors, music and cocktails will be shared closer to the time on the market’s Facebook page (@forkcy).
“So,” concludes Fork Food, “(and we’ve missed saying this so much) prepare yourselves and come hungry!”
