There were so many fantastic food events going on that weekend, but unfortunately I was going to miss most of them due to prior commitments. One thing I did have time to attend very quickly was this and I’m pleased I did. Being a big carnivore it could be very easy to dismiss an event like this, but being a lover of food/blogger it was another great opportunity to find out more about what produce is on offer for different dietary requirements.
With just an hour to check out 115+ stalls showcasing a multitude of vegan products it had to be a short and snappy visit.
Of course an important part of the festival was to develop the awareness of animal charities and organisations, such as IAPWA and Animal Aid. If I’d had more time I would have wanted to find out more about the things going on here but unfortunately, I could only really get around to take photos of the stalls.
Here is my photo blog of many of the food stalls that day, apologies to any I have missed out!!
All proceeds from admissions went to the IAPWA animal charity.
Such a great event which was very well attended, it was heaving when I arrived! I wish I’d had more time to explore things in more depth, there’s always next time!
After visiting the festival I looked into Vegan eateries in and around the Leeds area, here’s a list of the ones I found, I’m sure there are lots more:
The Cheerful Chilli – Otley
Prashad – Drighlington
The Veggie – Ilkley
The Grove Cafe – Cardigan Road
Filmore & Union – Moortown and Leeds city centre
Are there any great vegan eateries I have missed off my list, I’m sure they are?The Queens Hotel City Square Leeds West Yorkshire LS1 1PJ
