The 14th edition of the National Street Food Festival is all set to take place in Noida Haat’s Sector 32, from February 2-4 onwards. Oragnised in collaboration with the Small Industries Development Bank of India (SIDBI), the event is set to take place from noon to 10pm over the course of three days. Known as the ‘Noida Utsav,’ street foods like malai kebab, aloo chat, kesar doodh and tava chicken litti are amongst some of the available delicacies for visitors to sample.

Like the previous editions, the National Association of Street Vendors of India (NASVI) decided to bring the experience to other cities after spending 13 years in Delhi. Not only will the festival be a showcase of the rich culinary diversity of street food across India, but a section will also showcase Indian handicrafts, to give visitors a shopping experience while at the festival. Products like carpets, terracotta artefacts, takarashi woodwork and khadi garments are among some of the things that will be retailed.

In addition to this, the endeavour by the organisers has been to work towards promoting the zero waste practices by way of providing vendors with leaf and bamboo serveware as well as recyclable plastic containers. The generated waste will also be segregated before part of it is sent for composting and a part of it goes to the recycling plant. Alongside the 50 vendors who will be putting up stalls at the venue, small business owners will also have an opportunity to network with like-minded individuals and raise awareness about market understanding, government schemes and mudra loans to further their entrepreneurial capacities.
