In an opening speech, Marketing Manager of Wadah Amal Sdn Bhd, Norfirdaus Rashid shared that Food Street has been around since 2021 and gained popularity around the country.
“It consists of three main components; food vendors, kids playground as well as a rentable event space.”
“Our vision for the food street still remains the same which is (that) we want to create a space that transcends mere brick and mortar. We want to create an experience for everyone and some things that can be remembered for years to come.”
Norfirdaus added that the public can expect seven to eight new vendors for this sixth edition.
The Yayasan Food Street was organised with the intention of providing a platform to assist local vendors to market their products, expand their businesses and enliven the atmosphere of the capital.
“It has proven to be one of the preferred destinations in the country that attracts businesses, locals and tourists alike,” read a statement.
The new cycle of vendors will be at the complex for five months and operate every Tuesday to Sunday from 3pm to 10pm.
Visitors can also find other facilities around the premises including urban street dining and family-friendly activities such as Mini Pirate Ship, Mini Rollercoaster and Trains that are available throughout the end of the year.
