A North-east entrepreneur is launching her first street food venture on Teesside.
Fourteen Street Kitchen has arrived at Darlington Market and it promises to bring a 'touch of spice' to the market hall. The Mexican-Californian fusion menu will be the latest addition to the venue which also recently welcomed Bliss Desserts and Olive's Cypriot Food.
The eatery has been launched by owner and founder Alex Marshall, in her first foodie venture. The arrival of the new cuisine is timed well as the market is currently undergoing its second phase of development.

The food stall will offer a range of Mexican favourites like burritos, chilli-dogs and melt-in-the-mouth brisket. Alex, who originally hails from Newcastle, said she is excited to be joining the other independent vendors in the Darlington food hall, which is operated by Market Asset Management (MAM).
She said: “The renovation of Darlington's indoor market is an exciting vibrant hub. A place to be, a place to go – a natural fit for our new concept.
"Fourteen Street Kitchen is a new take on the exciting bold flavours of Mexican food tempered by the Californian influences of the sun-kissed outdoor lifestyle. Naturally wholesome but bringing your taste buds alive.
“The food is based around a healthier take on the classics; nachos, burritos, chili dogs and Tex-Mex fries.”
This new arrival to the market comes in quick succession to the launch of Bliss Desserts, which offers freshly-made doughnuts, crepes, and ice cream loaded bubble waffles, and Olive’s Cypriot Food with their packed gyros and mezze platters. They join Manao Thai, Kabao, and Spud Gun Loaded Fries, with MAM promising their is 'something for everyone to try'.
The second phase of the market development is well underway and will include the arrival of a new basement, prohibition-era inspired bar to be named The Vault, which will be offering real ale, hand-selected wines, spirits and crafted cocktails. This renovation follows the first phase of development which introduced the street food hall in 2021.
The works are part of a blueprint from operators Market Asset Management Darlington Ltd and Darlington Council for the venue. The plans intend to showcase the market as a home to amazing global cuisine and independent retail offerings and organisers hope to grow the market as a food, retail, and live entertainment destination.
MAM’s General Manager for Darlington Markets, Michael Harvey said: “Darlington Market is transforming at pace, and it’s so great to see incredible businesses like Fourteen Street Kitchen queuing up to be a part of it. This is an exciting time for the town.”
