SHEFFIELD’S NEW TECH HUB WILL BE HOME TO KOLLIDER SOCIAL – A PERMANENT FOOD HALL FROM SHEFFIELD FAVOURITES PEDDLER, TAMPER AND DEPOT BAKERY.
The people behind Peddler, Tamper and Depot Bakery have joined forces with Kollider Projects to create a 16,000 square foot food hall on the upper ground floor of the former Co-op department store inside Castle House. It will be home to ‘several street food inspired independent food vendors, together with a bar, an area for private dining and a unique social work and event space.’
The new Scandi inspired food hall promises to be in the same vein as similar venues in other cities, such as Manchester’s Mackie Mayor, and will open its doors early every morning to the aromas of Tamper’s coffee and Depot Bakery’s freshly baked croissants from late autumn.
Nick Morgan from Kollider Projects said: “Tamper, Depot, Peddler, not only are they breaking great bread, they’re breaking great ground as well! The project at Castle House will bring a landmark building back into use in line with its provenance as a place for everyone in the community, a place to work and play, a place to connect and network around great food and drink.
We felt it was important that Castle House should be accessible to more than people who will work in the building, Kollider Social will achieve that goal. If you’re gonna build something for Sheffield it needs to be for all of Sheffield.”
Jonathan Perry, Tamper’s owner said: “For my part, I feel that Sheffield misses out on some of the great food experiences available in other cities both here in the UK and overseas. Kollider Social is an opportunity to redress this and transform part of this amazing building into a dynamic environment for food, creativity and connection.
With the development of Kollider in Castle House, and with many other exciting projects on the horizon, Castlegate is an area of the city that is quickly transforming. Councillor Mazher Iqbal, Cabinet Member for Business and Investment,was quick to give ‘credit’ to Tamper, Depot and Peddler for seeing ‘the area’s massive potential’ and for wanting ‘to play a part in its exciting rebirth’.”
Ben Smith, from Peddler’s said: “The opportunity to be involved in curating a collective food offer, in such an iconic building is extremely exciting for us and we cannot wait to open the doors.”
