Local lovers of plant-based eats, you’re in luck this month, as Ely Markets get set to host their very first Ely Vegan Fair on 29 October. The fair is the first in a series of events geared towards celebrating the diversity of Ely market, bringing together familiar faces with regional and national traders. Aimed at both vegans and the v-curious alike, guests will be able to discover an array of delicious food, as well as information and well-being activities.
There will be more than 20 traders in total, as well as a covered seating area where you can relax and tuck into your treats. Pick up vibrant veggie cuisine from local faves The Wandering Yak, vegan pizza from The River Kitchen and delectable Caribbean dishes from The Lick, as well as vegan quiche and flapjacks from George’s Bakery and samosas and more from Cadwin Curries. You’ll also be able to enjoy Gaia’s Kitchen’s vegan cheeze, vegan scotch eggs from Food by Lizzi, flatbreads from Replete and indulgent chocolate cake, lemon drizzle, brownies, mini Bakewell tarts and more from Audrey’s Vegan Cakes. To wash it all down there will be a vegan bar serving up delicious organic wines.
“We hope this event will put Ely Markets and veganism on the map,” says Alex Higgs from local food and lifestyle blog Bone White China, who is co-organising the event. “What the vegan traders have started here is incredibly exciting for Cambridgeshire and we look forward to a day celebrating a more conscious approach to foodie culture!”
