Kardien said: “Daisy’s Farm vegan café set up in the square and provided hot and cold drinks including Rave coffee and loose leaf teas plus a range of vegan cakes and savouries.

“The range on offer included vegetables, vegan cheeses, preserves, baked goods, olives and falafels, fire cider, soups, samosa, beer and even Tuga Pastries, the Portuguese tart maker from the Saturday farmers’ market promoted his vegan tarts!

“It is an unusual time of year to start a new market, with mid-winter not usually deemed ideal for trading, but we felt it was the right time to introduce a regular and permanent event for vegan shoppers and are looking forward to the market growing as the year progresses. We had over 20 traders for Sunday, so it was a good start.”
