A Totally Vegan And Zero-Waste Market Is Heading To London

Back by popular demand, London’s first ever vegan and zero-waste market is returning to London.

Zero Mkt had a very successful debut back in September 2018 – so successful that it’s coming back in April, and organisers have promised that it’ll be bigger and better than before. (See also: the plastic-free, zero-waste store in east London.)

Tucked away in Saint Thomas More Language College in Chelsea, the market will be a one-stop shop for vegan food and drink, fresh produce, toiletries, up-cycled accessories, and so much more. With over 40 exhibitors attending, there will be zero animal products, zero single-use plastics and zero waste.

All profits made on the day will be donated to the animal rights charity, Animal Equality. Any leftover meals will be donated to City Harvest, who distribute surplus food to organisations that feed the hungry. Other leftover food will be composted and used by the school’s Gardening Club. Zero Mkt’s founders have also promised to plant trees as part of a carbon offsetting mission.

The market will take place on Saturday, April 13. It’s completely free to attend, and there’ll also be free workshops taking place throughout the day.
