It’s the summer and you want to get outside to enjoy the weather whilst it’s good. Perhaps the kids are at home for the school holidays and starting to get bored so you’re desperately trying to tear them away from the tv or their tablets. We’ve got your back with an idea!

One thing we can all enjoy? Food, of course! And because we’re Soulful, we’re talking about the plant-based kind. Combining food and the great outdoors, we’ve collated a list of vegan markets that are on throughout August. 

You’ll find a whole host of delicious morsels to try as well as vegan beauty products and household items too. Many are organic, sustainable and ethically & locally sourced so you’ll feel good about your market finds too! What’s not to love?

Some of these events are regular, so if you enjoy them, you can head back again.
