Malvern Vegan Market returned to the town today after proving popular earlier in the year.

The market has taken over Abbey Road in Great Malvern for the day and was attracting good crowds on Saturday morning (November 11).

There were stalls selling food, clothing, coffee and doughnuts as well as nature charities.

Nia Morris represented Worcestershire Wildlife Trust at the market.

“We’re here to spread the word about our wildlife projects and the really important thing is to get kids involved,” she said.

“There’s lots for them to do including pond dipping and bug hunting. There are 76 nature reserves in Worcestershire so plenty of places to get out and about and explore nature.”

Dawn Hardwick runs Omishka, which sells Fairtrade and handmade blanket scarves.

“They are all sourced from a women’s co-operative in India,” she said.

“This is my first time in Malvern. It’s a nice market with interested people.”

Poppy Watkins was representing the World Wildlife Fund.

“I’m spreading the word about the charity and talking to people about what we do for animals and their habitats,” she said.

Zita Vimi was selling artisan vegan cheese with her company Sophie’s Delight.

She was returning to Malvern after enjoying success at the first vegan market earlier in the year.

“We’ve had a very good reception, the people here are very nice,” she said.

Olivia Teanby of Cub Coffee had travelled from Buckinghamshire to be at the market.

“The sun is shining so I can’t have any complaints,” she said, “it’s my first time here and I’m just hoping for a good day.”

Simon Ankers and Luke Parkinson were representing Riverford Organic Farmers, which offers ethical and environmentally-concious home food deliveries.

“There is no plastic, no contract and no delivery fee,” said Simon.
