Loughborough will welcome a vegan market to the town for the first time on Sunday May 15 after being postponed in February due to high winds.
The event which is being run by Vegan Market Co. in partnership with Charnwood Borough Council will bring together over 30 stalls of vegan street food, artisan bakers, craft cheeses, handmade cosmetics, ethical clothing and jewellery as well as zero-waste champions and environmental charities plus much more.
Gluten free options are available and well-behaved dogs are welcome. The event is also fully wheelchair accessible.
The event will run in Loughborough Market Place from 10.30am until 4pm.
Cllr Jenny Bokor, lead member for Loughborough said: “We are really looking forward welcoming the Vegan Market. Co and the fantastic wide range of different stallholders to Loughborough.
“We were obviously disappointed when the event had to be postponed earlier this year because of the forecast of high winds.
“The Vegan Market is definitely not one to miss and I would encourage people to put the date in their diaries.”
