According to a recent survey by finder.com, the number of vegans in the UK is set to increase by 327% this year. The figures indicate that over the next year, 2.2 million people will become vegan, with the vegan population growing to around 2.9 million.
And if you’re thinking about becoming part of all of this, The Great Yorkshire Vegan Market this Sunday, 30th August, is the perfect place to start. It is a popular annual event on the vegan calendar and the organisers have announced that due to current restrictions, this year it is an outdoor event.
