Traders at the Latin food festival on Sunday 29 May include Noso, the Venezuelan restaurant in North Liverpool, Esto es Espana, and Desserts by Dre. 

Noso’s reputation for authentic Venezuelan street food - including arepas, empanadas and tequeños - has put it on the Liverpool foodie map. Owners Miguel Pereira and Jean D’Amico met in Liverpool and decided to bring something of their love for Venezuelan food to the takeaway and restaurant in Fazakerley.

Mr Paella and the team at Esto es España on Hope Street serve traditional Spanish food inspired by chef Andres' hometown of Valencia. Expect a range of Mediterranean street food, from paella to tapas dishes like albondigas and chorizo in cider.
