Veggie alternative to Christmas market

Healthy eating? Another market has sprung up for Lincoln residents to visit instead of the original.

Lincoln vegetarian and vegan group Vegan Lincs have put together another Veggie Fayre, helping replace the hole left by the Lincoln Christmas Market.

Vegan Lincs recently held a Veggie Fayre in November as part of National Vegan Month, which was popular with locals.

Although the charity Christmas fayre was arranged before the cancellation of the Christmas Market, they are hoping this market will bring more visitors than previous.

People visiting the market can expect vegetarian food from the likes of Veggies of Nottingham and vegan cake stalls, Lush cosmetics and many more stalls.

This event’s theme is Caring Christmas Campaign, looking at raising money for animal charities.

All proceeds will be going to local charities Bransby Rest Home for Horses, Weirfield Wild Life Hospital, Alternative Animal Rescue and The Ark Animal Rescue.

Lincs Vegan’s Ruth Dredge said: “Despite it being the very first Caring Christmas Campaign we hope to attract as many people to come and partake in all the good food, great gifts and games on offer.”

The fayre will be held at the Croft Street Community Centre on December 11 from 11am to 4pm. There are free mince pies for the first 50 visitors.
