Taunton Vegan Fair


Thanks for coming along to Taunton Vegan Fair 2017!
And a massive thank you to all the companies who very generously donated to the fair:

Saturday 16 December 2017
11am to 4.30pm
At Wilton Church Hall, Fons George, Taunton TA1 3JT. Close to town centre, directions here.

There were over twenty stalls from chocolate, cake and plant-based cheese to vegan info and animal rescue. Plus three caterers, a cafe area and talks upstairs. Free goody bags for the first 50 visitors to the fair and vegan afternoon cream teas from 2pm.

Everyone was welcome whether vegan, plant-based or new to it all and want to find out more. All stalls and food were wheelchair-accessible, unfortunately the talks upstairs are not.

Join us on the Facebook event page.



There was be a cafe area inside with two hot food caterers, plus vegan cream teas and drinks, and a street food van outside the venue.

Those Vegan Pizza Guys will have freshly made hand stretched, stone-baked vegan pizza!

Fairfoods will have red wine and mushroom shep's pie with gravy; chick pea and veg korma w/ spice-crusted potatoes, basmati rice and salad; sausage rolls and creamy cashew roast.

Pyramid Catering will be providing the vegan street food outside. They will have the Pyramid breakfast in a pitta, chilli burritos, burgers, chilli cheeze dogs and regular dogs. Mostly organic.

Stalls (downstairs)




Hosted by Fairfoods and organised voluntarily by local vegans.
Big thanks to Animal Equality and Animal Aid for sponsoring the fair.

Everything at the fair will be vegan.
