Lewis Beresford, VMCO’s founder, said they look forward to returning to the city and introducing residents to vegan producers.

He said: “We are delighted to be back in Darlington. We work hard to source the country’s leading vegan producers, from street vendors and bakers to ethical clothing and cosmetics manufacturers.

“We also work with many local businesses and can’t wait to give all these amazing producers the platform they deserve and introduce them to the wonderful people of Darlington.”

In addition, Michael Harvey, General Manager of Darlington Markets at Market Asset Management said, “The fact that this interesting and exciting event is returning to Darlington following the success of its first market is a testament to the unwavering support of the people of Darlington.”

“Our commitment is to bring a diverse range of markets, events and entertainment downtown.

“The range of products was amazing last time and I’m sure visitors will be spoiled for choice again.”

Organizers said the products were “developed by a handpicked selection of talented, ethical and sustainable companies.”

The event runs alongside the Darlington Borough Council (DBC) Sustainability Event taking place on 2nd and 3rd June in Market Square.

The aim is to find out how people can influence the future of the world. This includes stalls, shopping, demonstrations and even beekeeping.
