Exciting new food hall set to open in Sheffield City Centre

15 March 2019

Much anticipated new food hall, Kommune have announced their launch weekend with the exciting foodie venue set to open its doors to the public on Friday 22 March.

Following hot on the heels of the successful Cutlery Works in Keham Island, this brand new food hall will open in Sheffield City Centre, taking up residence in Castle House which has been undergoing vast regeneration to transform it into the city’s new tech hub, Kollider.

The new 16,000sqft food hall will bring together independent kitchens, brewers and retailers in a unique urban space, offering an array of foodie delights for all tastes.

Kommune will be open from 9am until late, to satisfy breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner needs, as well as serving everything from local brews to organic wines and an eclectic mix of cocktails and homemade sodas.

The 10 Traders, each with their own onsite kitchen, who will be getting mouths watering and tummies rumbling, include:

The Depot Bakery, providing freshly baked pastries for your journey to work and a unique range of patisserie and sweet treats as well as artisan bread to take home.

Pom Kitchen bringing Australian inspired, plant powered food in a rainbow of colours and jam packed with flavour.

Tamper Coffee will focus on speciality coffee to keep you sufficiently caffeinated all day long.

Chaat Cart’s south Indian inspired food will mix snacks typically sold from roadside stalls, small plates showcasing home-style south Indian cooking and more refined supper club favourites.

Shoot The Bull, starting a new rotisserie and grill concept focussing on great quality ingredients cooked with skill, interesting techniques and exciting flavour combinations.

Yoki,  adding their healthy, colourful and exciting Korean soul food to the mix.

JH Mann will take their fresh fish concept of ‘straight from market to plate’ into a more adventurous all day dining menu.

MorMor will be cooking up a contemporary mix of Middle Eastern, North African and Mediterranean street food with an abundance of veggie and vegan options as well as meaty choices too.

Baked in Brick are last but most definitely not least with the all-time crowd pleaser- pizza. They’ll use local and premium ingredients on top of freshly proved dough to make some top-notch pizza.

Fat Hippo specialise in the good kind of gluttony, making indulgent burgers that leave your fingers messy and your belly full.

Sitting alongside these incredible kitchens will be the Department of Drinks - the bar run by Kommune that wraps around the iconic staircase at the heart of the building. The bar line up seeks to impress with a permanent selection of Freedom brewery beer that is brilliantly balanced, free from animal products and brewed with a conscience as well as some continually changing guest taps.

The wine list will offer established favourites, alongside more contemporary wines and fizz, while custom cocktails will be inspired by each of the traders.

A number of well-loved Sheffield retailers will also be joining the Kommune family, including Hop Hideout, using their in-depth knowledge to provide craft beer, cider, specialist natural, biodynamic and organic wines and spirits in ‘a one-stop shop for great quality drinks to take home’. 

La Biblioteka are putting in a specialist magazine,book and printing shop as well as facilitating other pop ups by local, independent artists and craftspeople in the space.

Lastly, The Viewing Room, brought to Kommune by the creators of 99 Mary St and DED design agency,  will present a contemporary gallery with a focus on pop, urban and contemporary art showcasing the works of established pop art idols as well as exciting new works by local and international up and coming artists.

Following the opening of the National Videogame Museum in Castle House last year, the opening of Kommune, and Kollider as a whole, marks the next big step in the wider regeneration of Castlegate area of the city. 

Kommune joins an already strong independent food scene in Sheffield, something for which the city is increasingly getting more national and international attention.
