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.”
