“This family-friendly day is for both vegans and v-curious alike, so come along and discover an array of street food, producers, information and wellbeing.”
The Ely Vegan Fair on October 29 will bring together familiar faces with regional and national traders.
The city’s High Street will be transformed with over 20 traders planned, as well a covered seating area to share a drink and enjoy some delectable delights.
Elizabeth ‘Lizzi’ Flaherty, of Food! by Lizzi, who recently featured on Spotted in Ely after deciding to convert her vegetarian stall to a fully vegan one, will be serving up her famous vegan scotch eggs as well as other meatless treats.
