It’s almost November which means Christmas will soon enough be in full-swing! That means, it’s likely there’ll be a christmas market springing up somewhere near you. How about this year you change it up?
With the growing support for a vegan lifestyle, there’s some exciting things taking place. There’s a few vegan christmas markets springing up and I’m sure there’ll be one near you. They’re perfect for taking your children, family or friends to and help expose plenty of people to the wonders of the vegan diet!
Here’s a few of this years UK vegan christmas markets.

Christmas is coming!
Though there’s not currently a large amount throughout the UK, it promising to see a handful spring up. There’s also talk of a vegan Christmas Market in Manchester but details are unfortunately yet to be announced.
If you want your own UK vegan Christmas market, you could do the leg work yourself and get planning. Many of these events start small, in a tiny village hall and grow into some of the biggest vegan events in the country! Every thing has to start somewhere and what’s to say you can’t be the one to start it?
Encourage your friends and family to come along and show them you can still enjoy christmas without any of the cruelty! I can’t wait for the one in Leeds, make sure you head to your nearest one and support local vegan trade!
