We love Hatch for everything it has to offer. Their selection of repurposed shipping containers are home to some of Manchester’s most exciting independent businesses.

With an exciting and ever-changing food selection, Hatch gives local businesses the opportunity to set up shop on Manchester’s bustling Oxford Road – adding further kudos to the increasing popularity of the area.

Keeping things fresh with their pop-up traders – visitors can be back at Hatch every few weeks for a completely new experience.

Hatch has been feeding hungry Oxford Road goers with their out of this world selection of food traders for a little over two years and it is safe to say – they’ve never let us down.

Say hello to…


Expect Pan Asian cuisine and the warmest welcome from Anna and Alex at FUKU. With an amazing selection of Asian street food, their space located at the back of Hatch transports you to a cool shack in Far East Asia. FUKU also has a great vegan offering – vegan or not, you’ll want to try their immense Vegan Plattertrust us.


Grandad’s Sausages

The guys over at Grandad’s Sausages are just the best. And if you don’t believe us – they’ve just scooped the award for Street Food Trader Of The Year at Manchester Food and Drink Festival (and honestly, it couldn’t be better deserved). The Sausage Connoisseurs have been bringing artisan bangers to the people of Bury for over 50 years fuelled by their Grandad Bernard’s best tips and tricks. These hot dogs are MIND-BLOWING, and you need to try them, immediately.




The Cypriot cuisine we’ve all been waiting for. The father & daughter duo have brought their passion for Cyprian food to their two-storey shipping container restaurant at Hatch. Reflecting the taste of the Mediterranean, Mezze combines Turkish treats such as homemade falafel, Mediterranean flatbreads and chef’s specials. Think everything from Halloumi, Kebabs, GYROS (I love Gyros), homemade Hummus & Chargrilled Chicken Salads. I’m verrrrry excited to try this one.



Abeja Tapas Bar

Officially the smallest (and cutest) tapas bar in Manchester – expect an authentic menu from owner Anna Villegas straight from her hometown of Granada. From the wine selection to the food offering – everything at Abeja is based around Andalusian cuisine. Abeja also hosts a monthly wine pairing event with their exclusive selection of wines from the boutique wineries of Granada, with each glass paired with a special dish from Southern Spain. The perfect low-key night out – if you ask me.




If you’ve never had a Parmo – I’m really sorry. Luckily I lived in up north for 3 years so I’ve had plenty. Bringing the Teesside delicacy to the people of Manchester – Parmogeddon has just set up shop at Hatch (parmos are usually built from a chicken breast, breaded and deep-fried, loaded with white béchamel sauce and plenty of cheese). Boro born, the guys at Parmogeddon are offering everything from your classic parmo to butty’s & loaded fries.



Golden Nugget

Proper good street food, served from a giant golden nugget. Golden Nugget’s bright gold food truck is parked up in Hatch’s courtyard for 6 days a week and is certainly the hidden gem of Manchester’s Street Food offering.  Expect pork nuggs, veggie nuggs and chicken nuggs alongside some delicious gourmet wraps, stacked chicken burgers and even fish finger butties.



KBOM are bringing their fusion of Portuguese and Brazillian street food to the people of Manchester. Their just-opened container features bold colours, stunning brickwork and a momentous iconic Portuguese street scene centre stage. You’ll find delicious Portu/Brazil mashups such as their popular prawn dish, Gambas a Guillo, along with Portuguese and Brazillian national dishes. A match made in heaven. Did we mention that they also do SANGRIA ON TAP? Yeah, I know.




Hatch’s resident vegan connoisseur’s Robyn and Damien have brought their esteemed 100% vegan brand Herbivorous, to Hatch – yippee! The duo has travelled the country with their award-winning vegan street food offerings. Vegan or not, their plant-based eats are to die for with stacked burgers, loaded fries, delicious wraps and more. The pair know their stuff and often host regular workshops. This March will see them host an exclusive Seitan Making Workshop (a popular but difficult to perfect vegan meat substitute) at Manchester’s biggest sustainable market, right here at Hatch!
