We work hard to find the country’s leading vegan producers, from street food vendors and bakers to ethical clothing and cosmetic producers.

The company launched its first event back in 2016 with the aim of making veganism accessible and inclusive. The VMCO now covers more than 50 locations across the UK. VMCO made their Winchester debut at the end of April, earlier this year.

Marketing manager, Chloe Hutchings described the market as a "great success".

For each business that takes part in each event, a tree is planted. The market company hope to offset the carbon footprint by supporting tree planting and conservation projects and promoting sustainable lifestyle choices.
