How Fine A Mess

How Fine A Mess

How Fine A Fine Mess contains interviews, articles and artworks that explore food production, consumption, sustainability and health. Rooted in Sheffield, the publication draws on the rich landscape of the city’s diverse communities to share ideas around sustainable living and the future of food.

About Mess1

Made in partnership with ASAP printers and Peddler, a monthly street food market situated at 192 Burton Road, Sheffield, Mess is directly connected to the community that frequents the market — city residents, students, families, professionals — as well as bringing into the mix contributors from across the city's social, economic and cultural divides.

I think your publication is bloody beautiful. I was on my lunch break, looking for fundraising inspiration and issue 03 caught my eye. It’s engaging, passionate and lovely to touch! I used to work for WIRED magazine (part of the Conde Nast group) so I know the effort that goes into editorial production and printing

Mess is the perfect platform to explore topics in and around what Peddler is at it’s core; a melting pot of passionate people making great stuff for other people to joyously consume. There are so many individual stories within the melting pot; each one plays it’s own pivotal role. For us and for the makers and traders at Peddler, exploring these stories and all the bit’s around the edges of the melting pot makes for a more interesting outcome.
