Blackpool Vegan and Green Fair

We had a wonderful time at Blackpool Vegan & Green Fair today. After an early start and miserable weather, the sun came out and the venue was packed!

There was food and seating downstairs, and a large hall of stalls upstairs. Here are some of our favourite things!

Ice-cream

100% Vegan ice-cream by Icy Curls. This is a newly founded company, run by two young folks who discovered this marvelous type of ice-cream on their travels in Thailand.

They take coconut milk and fruit or biscuits and rhythmically chop and slooth at it over an ice cold plate. Delicious and free from things like gum, inulin and added fats.

Turkish Vegan Food

We tried Queen Gozleme, a delicious Turkish flat bread. Ours was stuffed with potatoes ane spinach. Yummy!

West African Natural Ginger Flakes

I can’t find the words for how tasty these are! I am a convert, an addict! Fresh grated ginger, dried and roasted. Eat as a snack, sprinkle on your breakfast or make a tea. Check out www.sacotradingltd.com if you favour flavour!

Riverford going worker owned

Our veg box supplier, Riverford Organic, are going to be employee owned within the next few months. Read more about this. We think this is amazing! The Leeds sales team are certainly happy about it!

Here is some of the veg in this weeks boxes…

Face oil

This lovely face oil from The Buddha Beauty Company is gentle and smells amazing.

Soaps
