The announcement is expected to be warmly welcomed by Newbury residents and businesses alike…
Newbury Business Improvement District (BID) is thrilled to announce the highly anticipated return of Newbury Vegan Market.
Newbury BID confirm the market will return to the town centre on Sunday 8th August, and it is free for visitors to attend between the hours of 10am and 3pm. The event, founded by Vegan Fairs, is expected to bring in vegan (and vegan-curious) visitors from regions near and far to enjoy all things plant-based and cruelty free.
Subsequent markets are due to take place every three months and will deliver fresh and exciting vegan products and produce, from an array of vegan street food, baked goodies and sweet treats to sustainable clothing brands, animal-friendly cosmetics and beauty products, and ethical arts and crafts stalls, to name but a few.
The selection of independent and big-brand names set to make an appearance at Newbury Vegan Market only enhances the existing vegan-friendly offering at many of Newbury’s eateries, boutiques and cafes- many of which will be open to new customers on market day.
The town has an impressive selection of 30 stores that cater specifically to vegan diets, such as authentic Thai hotspot- Khon Kaen, street food specialists at The Cross Keys, Mexican-inspired foodies at The Lion Pub, and vegan brunch spots at Weavers Walk and The Flowerpot Café – recently achieving ‘Best Breakfast in Newbury’ status on TripAdvisor.
Furthermore, many retail businesses lining the historic town’s streets don’t shy away from cruelty-free and sustainable-shopping products, with stores such as Plum & Grain, Grape Tree, B The Lifestyle Shop, and Inn at Home, all boasting an array of vegan-friendly products.
Newbury BID, the not-for-profit organisation behind the Visit Newbury brand, is delighted to welcome back these specialist markets.
Alison Drummond, Newbury BID’s Operations Manager, states:
“Since the launch of the first Newbury Vegan Market in 2018, the demand for vegan variety in the town centre has only grown, and businesses are listening!
Without fail, the Vegan Market increases town centre footfall year-on-year, and I’m sure this year will be no different. Given the exceptional line up of stalls jam-packed with vegan goodies, even the biggest carnivore among us will be tempted!”
Daisy Botha, Founder of Aarde Events and Vegan Fairs organiser, states:
“The Vegan Fairs team has been working hard with Newbury BID to ensure Newbury Vegan Market is a safe environment, with extra measures in place to ensure this socially distanced event is COVID safe and managed within government guidelines.
We recognise that our Vegan Fairs have somewhat of a following, and it’s great to see so many Newbury businesses join our market traders in the fight for a more vegan and eco-friendly world. Newbury, we can’t wait to see you again very soon!”
