Leicester vegan fair review

November 22, 2016

On Saturday the Leicester vegan fair returned for the third and final time this year, this time taking up the space within Fullhurst College. I wasn’t sure what to expect this time around. The first two vegan markets were an amazing success, but I wasn’t sure if that was partly due to the location of it being right in the city centre.

Big crowds early on

Well, I needn’t have worried. When we arrived around 11:30 the parking lot was overflowing and there was a steady stream of people arriving to the event. Inside, there were plenty of stalls selling every type of foodΒ you’d want from a vegan market, as well as different charities, a vegan family room, cooking demos and live music. There was even a brewery this time selling their own beer, result!

I’m always worried about food selling out, so Andrew and I made our way around all the hot food vendors first and then hit up the other food stalls for treats to take home. Here are just a few highlights from the event:
