This woman has set up a vegan market where you can get pizza, ice cream and cheese

This woman is setting up a vegan market in Cardiff – where she can get you vegan ice cream, pizza and cheese.

Sue Thomas, who lives just outside Cardiff, has arranged a vegan market on Sunday in Roath .

Up to 30 stalls will be at the event and organiser Sue, 65, is hoping people will go along to see exactly what vegan food has to offer.

Sue, from Cosmeston, has been a vegan for around seven years and believes the quality of vegan food on offer in Cardiff and South Wales is so high that she can’t believe more people haven’t joined her.

She can usually fix up vegan fish and chips, sushi, and even sausages.

Sue is hosting one of her Absolutely Fabulous Vegan Cruelty-Free Market events at Plasnewydd Community Hall on Sunday from 11am until 4pm.

Pizza, cakes, cheese, juices, milkshakes, ice cream, brownies, macaroni and cheese and Indian food will be on offer while vegan Mexican food, fish and chips, and sushi will hopefully be returning to the menu at a later date.

Sue believes the movement is a growing market and is even setting up an event in Narberth for later in the year.

She said she was brought up on meat and dairy but decided to switch to vegan around seven years ago and feels much healthier for it.

The organiser said: “I’ve got more energy and all the rest of it. It’s just the future.

“I just think animals are so abused in every single way.

“I decided why don’t you have a farmers’ market, only a vegan market?”

She prides the events on having a large choice for visitors and hopes people will go along to see what exactly is on offer.

“We’re getting a growing market. Anything that people can eat we can do.

“People think we eat lettuce leaves – I eat everything everyone else eats in a different form.”

Avant-Garde Vegan

Firms holding stalls at the market include Sicily to Seattle, a Chepstow-based firm specialising in Sicilian street food with a few American favourites thrown in, and Avant-Garde Vegan.

Sue added: “The cooks are out of this world. We’re talking about works of art, really.

“If I said come along to my fayre and I didn’t tell you it was vegan you wouldn’t know. That’s the beauty of it.

“It’s just giving people a healthy idea.”

Adults will be charged £1 to enter the market on Sunday while children will be admitted free of charge.
