Ashford’s Elwick Place leisure complex saw footfall mushroom by 78% Saturday-to-Saturday when it hosted the town’s first vegan market recently.

Sixteen stallholders touting eco-friendly wares as diverse as vegan bacon, shaving brushes, Japanese seasoning and pot plants did a brisk trade in the sunshine, tapping into the growing popularity of vegan markets around the country.


SHW, which manages the 100,000 sq ft Elwick Place for Ashford Borough Council, said all the market traders nearly sold out of their produce, while the higher footfall also benefitted the scheme’s food and drink operators.


It is hoped Kent Food Hubs, which operates the market, will pop up again in Ashford as the trend towards a healthier lifestyle shows no signs of running out of steam.
