Night markets serving and selling food are common in the Far East and South American but in the UK they are a rare phenomenium. I know of only four, but nevertheless they are worth a visit if you are in the right part of Britain and have a free evening.

Urban Food Fest - This group assembles a different group of food trucks and vans in both East London and Manchester's city centre every Saturday night. The line-up is constantly changing and evolving, so each week visitors will discover something new. They open from about 5pm and go through until midnight. There are craft beers, cocktails and live music on offer as well as a wide range of foods to try. For details visit:
