A microbrewery in Hull is adding a bit of fizz to the menu at Trinity Market.
Fellows and Vittle is developing a range of ales to compliment the wide range of food on offer after the market was granted a licence to serve alcohol.
Owner Richard Rockett, 34, brews and bottles his beers on-site at the market – and he has developed ales to pair with food sold by other market traders.
Richards Mango Kapur Saison pairs well with the Indian food sold at Tapasya, while and the Silky Soul Porter pairs with burgers and dark meats such as those at Shoot the Bull.
Richard said: Weve got such an abundance and variety of fantastic food on offer at the market, and I just thought why not, in my own little way, try and add to that?
For example, if you pick up some falafel from Falafia, you can wash it down with my Weiss Spice Witbier that I have made especially to compliment all the tasty Middle Eastern flavours.
There is so much of variety on offer at the market. Hopefully my special range of ales will add to what is already a fantastic place to eat and socialise.”
Hull Indoor Market was built in 1902 and is situated on North Church Side opposite Holy Trinity Church. The North Church Side frontage comprises a grade 2-listed building designed by Joseph Henry Hirst, Hulls first City Architect. The market has operated for over 100 years and is an important and well known feature of the city.
It was transformed last year following a £3m refurbishment.
Each stall was upgraded, Edwardian ceiling features were exposed, a new mezzanine seating level was added, and the space previously home to Rumours nightclub was transformed into an open seating area with light flooding in from the newly-exposed arch windows on North Church Side.
Lucy Lines, Hull Old Town project officer, said: As the market continues to grow with more traders bringing different tastes and experiences to customers, you can sense a real community developing.
Trinity Market is quickly becoming one of the most vibrant places in the city to eat, drink and shop. All the credit for this has to be given to the wonderful traders who all bring their own unique ideas and personalities to the market, and together they are creating something really special.
As well as the food and drink vendors weve also got traders selling records, flowers, comics and gifts – the market really is a treasure trove to explore.
Trinity Market is open from 7.30am until 5pm, Monday until Saturday.
