The popularity of Veganism has soared in recent years, and we have plenty of vegan markets and stallholders on Pedddle for you to sink your teeth into. Perhaps not the butcher, but we do have the odd baker, tinker, tailor – and certainly some candlestick makers!
If the world went vegan, we could reduce greenhouse gas emissions by two thirds, avoid climate change related damage of over $1.5 TRILLION, and even save around 8 million human lives, according to statistics from The Vegan Society.
As a result, many of our markets and their stallholders are embracing the vegan life or providing amazing goods for vegans that do.
Our Vegan Stallholders
Greatly inspired by nature, Squiggly Sue Designs creates beautiful vegan suede cushions amongst a host of other products – perfect for a vegan home or as a gift for a vegan you love!
Cork leather is often referred to as ‘vegan leather’ and is a material that Ami & Lo use to full advantage, creating gorgeous earrings and other jewellery in an ethical way. A renewable resource, Ami & Lo use cork leather alongside hypoallergenic metals to create jewellery that is kind to both you and the planet. All of their packaging is recycled, recyclable and plastic-free – what’s not to love?!
When it comes to food, why not spice up your life with a spice blend from The Herb & Spice Co., who have several vegan mixes.
