A feast of all things vegan takes place at the Guildhall
According to recent stats from the Vegan Society, the number of vegans in the UK has risen 350% over the past decade – a trend that shows no signs of slowing. If you’re local and among the ever-rising number of vegans and v-curious, or just keen to learn more about a plant-based diet and lifestyle, check out this month’s Cambridge Vegan Market, which takes place at the Guildhall on 1 October.
Swing by between 10.30am and 4.30pm and enjoy a huge showcase of vegan food and drink from all corners of the globe. The market is sponsored by vegan café Stem & Glory, so you can expect delicious eats from them, plus plenty more stalls serving up everything from Indian to Greek cuisine; vegan steaks to sweet treats including milkshakes, pastries, cookies, and donuts.
There’ll be plenty to try and buy, and you’ll also be able to pick up loads of great new recipe ideas to try out at home. It’s not just food on offer; there’ll be all sorts of vegan products to browse including luxury cosmetics and ethical clothing, plus a chance to learn more about various charities. If you fancy a tipple afterwards, pop along to the Pint Shop over the road, which will be hosting a mini vegan beer fest, with seven different vegan beers available at the pub on the day of the market.
Get in quick on the day as the first 100 through the door get treated to a free goodie bag packed with vegan goodies. Entry is £2 or free for kids under 12 years.
