Following on the success of the Spring Market Cheese Festival which saw 2000 people descend on Digbeth, Birmingham Seasonal Markets are welcoming in the British Summertime with their second themed market of the year. On the 2nd June 2018 The Bond Company will again play host to the Summer Market Veggie & Vegan Festival. Seasonal Markets will be returning to their usual stomping ground to showcase the best of the best that the earth has to offer.
Entry will be £2 with under 12s free. We’ll be open 12pm-6pm for everyone to come and try some of the best Veggie and Vegan Street Food, quaff some vegan wine and beers and have a look round our market hall of 15 artists, designers and makers and 15 veggie & vegan food producers.
The street food line-up includes some new and exciting traders bringing Veggie and Vegan specials to the Summer Market. We know our food offering will have something for everyone to enjoy from longtime vegans to those flirting with a plant-based lifestyle. Seasoned pros and Birmingham favourites, The Middle Feast will be bringing along their famed kebabs and mezze. Bringing some colour to the party will be UJuice, juicing up the best and bringing along their vegan bowls & snacks.
Puckin’ Poutine will be coming to Seasonal Markets for the first time serving up authentic Canadian poutine with exciting veggie options, jackfruit poutine, mushroom chilli poutine and Mediterranean veg poutine to name but a few. Fellow Seasonal Market newbies Kanassa will be bringing along some South American style with their Colombian inspired menu, decked out with plenty veg-friendly options. After taking the Cheese Festival Market Hall by storm with their unique and tasty vegan cheeses, and having just finished their month-long residency in the Jewellery Quarter’s 1000 Trades, BA-HA Vegan will be pulling out all the stops to bring their menu to The Bond and prove just how good plant power can be.
Award winning Fresh Rootz will also be bringing along their acclaim to help serve up their best veggie dishes from around the world. And let’s not forget dessert, purveyors of the best waffles in town, The Bournville Waffle Co will be making an appearance to satisfy everybody’s sweet tooth – look out for their vegan waffle with mixed berry compote.
And of course, not forgetting the drinks, we’ll be welcoming the natural wine trend to the Summer Market with a range of excellent vegan and craft wines on offer for everyone to enjoy. And if wine isn’t your thing, no worries – were super excited to announce that Burning Soul Brewing will bring their ace philosophy about vegan beer to the table too. Not to mention, our favourite Cocktail Caravan will be offering up some Spring time favourites as well as Prosecco by the glass and bottle.
Aside from our exciting veggie and vegan food & drink offering, Seasonal Markets will be hosting 10 of our favourite local artists, makers and designers. We always get so excited about being able to share some of the loveliest homemade crafts from in and around Birmingham with everyone who comes to our events. This summer we’ll be introducing vegan streetwear Being Clothing to the Market Hall and leather alternative cork accessories from Cortica Boutique. Alongside our craft exhibitors, we’re brought together a brilliant range of veggie and vegan food producers, from delicious and nutritious nut butters from ButterBelle to vegan chocolate from Tryshulls Raw Chocolate, to natural and organic wines from Grace + James and beyond.
