Vegan and Eco Market, Saturday 12th September
The Seed the Day event has moved this year to Bridgwater High Street, Town Hall and Engine Room to allow for more space between stalls and people attending. Seed the Day will operate this year solely as a street market due to COVID restrictions and the High Street will be closed to allow stalls stretching from the Cornhill up to the top of High Street to operate in line with COVID-19 guidance. There will be talks that will take place on a range of environmental matters with limited numbers (pre-booking only via Eventbrite), within the Town Hall. The Engine Room’s cafe will be open for the day.
The Vegan and Eco Market, which will be held on Saturday 12th September from 10:00hrs to 16:00hrs, was born out of the Town Council’s Climate Change Forum last year and was previously held in Castle Street.
Our partner is Vegan Fairs who will be bringing some wonderful stalls to the Market. The food stalls have producers coming from Somerset, Bristol and Stroud. Items include pies, cakes, pizza, fermented foods, curries, many deli foods and delicious fried foods, beauty products, zero waste products and much more all made from plants.
Environmental groups, that include The Woodland Trust, The World Wildlife Fund, Greenpeace, Rage Against Rubbish, Bridgwater Area Cycling Campaign and Somerset Climate Action Network and may others. All will be happy to explain the work that they are doing and ways that you can to get involved locally.
Lead Organiser and Bridgwater Town Councillor Li Gibson said “The Forum meetings were set up to give the Town’s people a voice to express their concerns and ideas around the climate and ecological challenges that we all face. These challenges are with us right now and will be a part of any solutions we have for our continued future. We have produce stall holders and environmental groups that want to make a difference to what we do and how and what we buy. We hope to see you at the Market for some good food, interesting products and great conversations. Please support the Market and Act Now!”
