In true Canopy Market style, street food stalls including The Big Melt and Growlers will be dishing up grilled cheese toasties and Portuguese steak sandwiches.

On Friday and Saturday night, the market will be staying open for a special late-night session, for those who want to continue the beer drinking into the evening.
