This popular event brings together an eclectic mix of vegan food alongside vintage, retro and traditional market stalls.

Julia Davis of Ely Markets, said: “Our vegan and vintage Fair is a brilliant event for all the family.

“You don’t have to be vegan to appreciate it – we’ve got delicious food and drink that’ll please everyone, as well as lots of vintage stalls. “It’s a chance to experience something new and enjoy a bit of retro fun while soaking up the atmosphere of our beautiful city.”

There will be a range of vegan food available – from meat-free burgers and Sri Lankan curry to Food by Lizzi’s famous “Scotch Eggless” and delicious cakes. Visitors should also look out for vegan beauty products and ethical clothing.

“Our markets have a great reputation for vegan food,” explains Julia. “At our Vegan and Vintage Fair, we’re bringing together local favourites with food and producers from all over the region.

“We’ve got something for everyone. For street food fans, there’s a vegan burger van, wraps, samosas and curry. There’ll also be delicious vegan-friendly coffee, tea and cake – plus a bar on the Market Place.”

There will also be a selection of vintage and upcycled furniture, plus collectables, clothes and records.

“This year there’ll be everything from retro lamps to 1950s-style dresses and vinyl,” says Julia. “People love the unique combination of delicious vegan food and quirky stalls.

“So, whether you’re curious about vegan food, or a fan of vintage style, come and explore our Vegan & Vintage Fair this bank holiday with your family and friends.”

• Ely Markets’ vegan and vintage fair is on Sunday 6 and Monday 7 May from 10am to 4pm. Vegan food and produce will be available on Dolphin Lane and the vintage stalls will be on the main Market Place.
