Extraveganza: GRUB Manchester celebrated Veganuary with its annual street food festival

GRUB, a Manchester-based restaurant, held its annual three-day vegan street food festival marking the last weekend of Veganuary, to support local businesses and promote veganism.

Veganuary is a global campaign launched in 2014, encouraging people to eat a vegan diet for the entire month.

Manchester was recently ranked the second most vegan-friendly city in the UK, according to LNER, and the festival showed off the wide range of vegan eateries the city has to offer.

James Cooke, co-founder of Nina’s, a vegan taco van, said: “I love Veganuary, so I hope more and more people get involved with it each year.

“It has been a Godsend for us because having a food truck in the Winter is generally quite tricky.”

Stalls ranged from meat-free tacos, vegetable dumplings, and even vegan twists on classic cakes and cinnamon roles.

There has been an increasing number of vegan eateries around Manchester, with a vegan diet being normalised in the UK.

James added: “I think it’s amazing. There is always room for more but it’s one of the best cities for vegan food.”
