The vegan market returns to Leicester

August 23, 2016

As you know, the first ever vegan market came to Leicester back in June and was a huge success. So much so that the Leicester Vegan Community have organized another vegan market for September!

Similar to the last event, this second market will take place on a Sunday at the Leicester covered market in the city center, from 11am to 3pm on the 4th of September.

Once again the event will support businesses, traders, artists, makers, charities, projects and community groups who have a strong vegan ethos. Offering food, drink, clothing, arts, crafts, cosmetics, gifts, entertainment and much more. It is an outdoor covered venue, so whatever the weather, you can come and enjoy a great day in the fantastic market place, right at the heart of Leicester City.

Here is a rundown of the vendors currently signed up for the September market. Be sure to check back frequently as I’ll continue to update this list in the run up to the event. And if you have a stall that’s not listed below, please do let me know!

Food stalls
