Expect animal free beer and wine, plant based cakes and not so dirty doners

The vegan food and drink offering was so popular during the fourth annual Leeds Indie Food festival this May, that organisers have decided to host the first ever Vegan North.  

#EatNorth, the weekly food fair held at North Brewing Co every Saturday for eighteen weeks over the summer, will be hosting an exclusively meat-free line-up on Saturday 14th July. It’ll feature all manner of plant-based alchemy including vegan junk food and award winning vegan beer on tap.

Eat North’s first ever exclusively-vegan line-up will involve eight street food traders, offering a range of imaginative plant-based dishes, comforting vegan junk food and sweet vegan cakes. The event will even see one or two regular traders showcasing some fully-vegan offerings for the first time.
