Veggie Fayre returns to Lincoln

Veggietastic: Those considering going veggie should check out the city’s annual veggie fayre for information and ideas.

The annual Lincoln Veggie Fayre will be making its return to the city this weekend, as part of celebrations for World Vegan Month.

The aim of the event, now in its fourth year, is to guide those thinking about going vegetarian and vegan, or just those wanting to add some meat-free dishes to their diet.

On Saturday, November 12, visitors can taste free sweet and savoury vegan and vegetarian food samples.

The fayre also provides dishes for those with dietary restrictions, such as coelics and diabetics.

As well as free food, the event will be opened by Director of Viva! Juliet Gellatley, who will also give a presentation and host stalls.

Co-organiser of the fayre Ruth Sanderson said: “More and more people are moving towards making ethical choices in their lives.

“Adopting a vegan diet is better for your health and for the planet and for other animals.

“It’s easy to do and more and more evidence shows that a whole food vegan diet is amongst the healthiest diets you can eat. Come along to the Veggie Fayre and find out more.”

The free event will be held at the Trinity United Reformed Church Hall on Gramston Street, starting at 10am until 4pm.
