Ely Markets’ Vegan Fair returns to the High Street on Saturday 29 September. This popular event is now in its third year and brings together some of the region’s most vibrant and innovative vegan streetfood and producers together with an opportunity to learn about the health and wellbeing benefits from their products.
“For such a small city, Ely has a very strong vegan community,” says Julia Davis of Ely Markets. “We’ve always supported our vegan traders and helped them find a permanent place at all our weekly markets. The Vegan Fair brings together this wonderful network of producers and stallholders in one place. We’re helping them reach a bigger audience than ever before.”
There will be a diverse range of vegan food available on the day. Sample the famous “Scotch Eggless” from Food by Lizzi for your lunch, or try exciting street food from Samu Kitchen and The Wandering Yak. The handmade vegan chocolates by Harrison Chocolatiers and delicious cakes from Audrey’s Vegan will satisfy any cravings for something sweet.
“Ely Market is now a real destination for vegan food,” says Lizzi Flaherty of Food by Lizzi. “The Vegan Fair brings all this together in one friendly event. Everyone’s welcome – old and new vegans, or just the curious!”
“You don’t have to be vegan to enjoy the fair,” says Audrey Hewerdine of Audrey’s Vegan. “We want to help non-vegans discover just how delicious this food can be. My vegan cakes are all traditional favourites – and they’re even more delicious than the originals!”
Ely Markets’ Vegan Fair will take place on Saturday 29 September from 9 am – 4 pm. The Vegan Fair will be on the High Street and the regular Saturday Craft, Food & Vintage Market will take place on the Market Place and Dolphin Lane as usual.
