Foodie Friday is Stockport’s monthly community event offering street food, craft ales and live music at Stockport Market on the last Friday of the month.

July 2017 Update: We’ve since redesigned the Foodie Friday website with a more modern look! Check it out here.

I am delighted to have built the website promoting the event, showcasing the fantastic street food traders as well as the sponsors Orbit Developments and Robinson’s brewery.

I teamed up again with Joe Barratt of the Teenage Market (having previously worked together on the Screen Stockport Film Festival website) who created the designs. The original Foodie Friday branding was brought to life by Ahoy Digital in Heaton Moor.

I then adapted the designs into a mobile responsive website ensuring it both looks and performs well on phones, tablets and wider screens. With around 57% of the sites traffic since launch coming from mobile phones this is very important!

The back end of the website uses WordPress and Advanced Custom Fields allowing the Foodie Friday team to easily update the site themselves.

The website also incorporates the social media tool Juicer which feeds any Tweets, Facebook and Instragram photos into the site when hashtagged with #skFoodieFriday.

We’ve had some fantastic feedback so far since going live, particularly from the traders themselves which it great!

Foodie Friday website feedback from Twitter

Some of the very kind feedback we’ve received on Twitter since launching the new Foodie Friday website.

Some of the street food traders are already feeling the benefits of being listed on the website too which is even better!

Foodie Friday is a brilliant community event so come on down! You will probably see me stuffing my face and enjoying the live music in Seven Miles Out!
