Discover exciting Christmas gift ideas, workshops, and new seasonal food to try and buy at the Manchester Vegan Christmas Market.
At a loose end this weekend? Why not head down to Manchester Vegan Christmas Market on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th November 2018 where you will discover an abundance of exciting Christmas gift ideas, workshops, and new seasonal food to try and buy…
The event, which is run in partnership with animal welfare charities including Miracle’s Mission, gives visitors the chance to sample new innovative foods and recipes as well as finding out how to make vegan life as simple as can be.
Vegan Festival Organiser Victoria Bryceson says: “With the number of people in the UK describing themselves as vegan at an all-time high, there’s a massive demand around the country for vegan-friendly events. Our festivals are set to be a fantastic day out whether you’re vegetarian, vegan or simply vegan-curious. The idea behind the festivals is to educate and inform everyone about the vegan lifestyle and offer support to anybody who would like to try it.”
The festival promises guests the chance to experience a wealth of fantastic stalls selling a huge array of Christmas gifts as well as world food caterers, cookery demos, inspirational talks, interactive workshops, yoga, a wide range of free food samples to try, and children’s activities running throughout the day.
Food on offer includes a varied and exciting array of plant-based hot and cold dishes, including Asian, Mediterranean, Indian, Greek, hotdogs, burgers, street food, raw food and gourmet delights.
There will also be a huge range of Christmas food, pies, cakes, chocolates, cookies, doughnuts, sandwiches and salads to take away as well as alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks, juices, smoothies, tea and coffee.
Not only is the event a chance to indulge and pick up festive gifts, stall holders are being asked to donate any surplus food at the end of the festival, where a group of volunteers distributes it to homeless people after the event, providing a hot meal as well as cold dishes.
