Kommune Sheffield Castlegate Food Hall Announce Traders

Kommune Sheffield announce the independent traders set to take up residency in their Castlegate food hall

The people behind Peddler, Tamper and Depot Bakery have joined forces with Kollider Projects to create a 16,000 square foot Castlegate food hall on the upper ground floor of the former Co-op department store, inside Castle House. The new Scandi inspired food hall, set to launch in late autumn, 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.

Kommune Sheffield is an innovative concept bringing together some of the most acclaimed, independent kitchens, brewers and retailers in a unique, urban space. This new meeting place will be home to a diverse choice of great tasting food, an artisanal bakery and speciality coffee, independent retail and an iconic bar, serving everything from local brews to organic wines and an eclectic mix of cocktails.

The food hall is set to become the newest part of a greater project run by Kollider who is leading the development of the iconic Castle House, breathing life back into the heritage listed 1960’s landmark building. The redevelopment of Castle House marks a significant milestone for the rejuvenation of the entire Castlegate area, the original, historic city
centre of Sheffield.

Fat Hippo specialise in the good kind of gluttony, making indulgent burgers that leave your fingers messy and your belly full. Born from a love of great burgers in a small restaurant in Newcastle, Fat Hippo have grown into a family of restaurants and a talented team with a borderline unhealthy obsession with burgers. They constantly look for ways to deliver more than just a mouthful. With gourmet toppings and quirky combinations, their burgers are anything but basic.

Fat Hippo owner Michael Phillips commented: “After multiple pop-ups in Sheffield, we can’t wait to bring our bangin’ burgers to a permanent venue here!” Executive Chef Michael
Johnson added: “To have been offered a space in such an exciting new project that supports independents like ourselves is a great opportunity that we can’t wait to make the most of! Our burgers reflect the quality ingredients we source from local suppliers: shop local; buy local; support local”.

Chaat Cart, who are currently based on the outskirts of Manchester, started their concept as a street food truck, popping up at markets and festivals until they secured a space at
Spinningfields start-up incubator ‘The Kitchens’ for a period. After leaving The Kitchens and winning the Manchester Food and Drink Festival’s best street food award Chaat Cart have had a successful year in their solo venture and can’t wait to bring their food to Kommune.

Describing the Chaat Cart menu, owner Aarti Pandey described the menu as “an evolution of her street food journey, mixing snacks typically sold from roadside stalls, small plates
showcasing home-style south Indian cooking, with more refined supper club favourites drawing on India’s hunting and fishing traditions”.

Kelham Island favourite The Depot Bakery are also set to join the Kommune community. The bakery will focus on a new and unique range of patisserie products alongside a few of the Depot classics we all love. So if it’s a freshly baked pastry on your way to the office in the morning or a black forest eclair with your afternoon coffee, there will be some form of amazing sweet treat to see you through the day. Of course, their artisan bread will be on sale for you to take home too.

Jon Perry, one of The Depot Bakery owners said “The team at the depot bakery are hugely excited to be a part of Kommune, for some time we have wanted to be situated in the city centre and Kommune is the perfect opportunity to showcase a new range of sweet products and give more people access to ‘real’ bread”.
