A food market will celebrate culture through meals at a popular local event.

The Govanhill Food Stories Community Market hopes to bring residents together from the culturally diverse neighbourhood.

With a wide selection examples of dishes, stories and recipes from local people, the event will run on August 13, as part of the Govanhill International Festival.

Free of charge, the Govanhill Food Stories Community Market is only one part of the colourful programme but invited everyone to try meals from different cultures while learning about traditions, customs and celebrations.

The food will be prepared by local organisations and businesses.

For example, families will be able to attend an Eritrean coffee ceremony as part of ‘Our Rights, Our Communities’ project, delivered by Unity Sisters in partnership with the Govanhill Baths Community Trust and MILK Cafe.
