The annual Vegan Christmas Market welcomed visitors this weekend in its fifth year on Bailgate.
The event, which was hosted in the County Assembly Rooms, was dubbed as the ‘busiest yet’ as visitors looked at the cruelty-free food, homemade crafts and entertainment that were on offer.
This comes a week before the traditional Lincoln Christmas Market opens for business.
Sheena Louise, who organised the event said: “The market is a great alternative to the Christmas Market, which I and a few others personally think isn’t inclusive enough options wise.
“Year on year I see an increase in visitors and this year has been the busiest yet. I do think that’s to be expected when veganism is becoming more of a well-known and respected lifestyle choice.”
Veganism is a plant-based diet that cuts out any product produced either from, or by an animal. As of 2019, 600,000 people are reported to be vegan in the UK.
