A Giant Vegan Market Is Opening In London Today And It Looks Glorious

Soya-fields Market? Quorn Street? I-can’t-believe-it’s-just-nuts Lane? Well, no. It’s called the Hackney Downs Vegan Market and it’s absolutely fabulous. Coming to London every 3rd Saturday of each month between 11am and 5pm, this is the joint venture between the fabulous Fat Gay Vegan and Eat Work Art. First came the vegan fried chicken shop, and now this… and it’s total tofurky food porn. Here’s a taste of what to expect…

Young Vegans – the London favourite, pie and mash (and gluten free brownies for afters)


Peanut Butter Bakery – the most beautiful donuts in the world


Big V London – gourmet burgers and sweet potato fries

Rupert’s Street – healthy, seasonal food that has been locally sourced

Club Mexicana – BBQ pulled jackfruit tacos and burritos, loaded cheesy nachos and beer-battered cheese fries. Ah

That’s what is in store for today’s market open ’til 5pm, plus a beer bottle and can bar, clothes stalls as well as a few resident artists and traders from within Hackney Downs Studios. Upcoming market days to add to your diary are April 15th, May 20th and June 17th.
