Get Set for the Vegan Market

The number of vegans in the United Kingdom has risen by over 350% in the last ten years – and on Sunday 3 September, shoppers in Leicester will be able to find out why, as Leicester Market plays host to the latest Vegan Market.

Taking place at the Outdoor Covered Market between 11.00am and 3.00pm, entry to the Vegan Market is free, with a number of stalls on hand to sell a variety of food, artisan cheeses, clothes, arts, crafts, cosmetics and gifts.

Are you a lover of street food? If so, there will be a number of stalls providing delicious vegan Mexican and Indian dishes, pizzas, burgers, smoothies and raw food. In addition to all that, you can enjoy the stalls selling clothes, arts, crafts, pots, plants, cosmetics, soaps, candles and much more. Those with a sweet tooth will also be satisfied with sumptuous cakes and deserts, including fresh donuts, Bakewell tarts, cheesecakes and milkshakes, on offer.

Children’s activities, including face-painting, will also be taking place during the course of the day, as well as cookery demonstrations that include advice on how to make your own vegan cheese!
