Saturday Markets

MinorOak celebrates its history as a 1930s market building with occasional Saturday pop-ups, coordinating with Sneinton Market Square. There’s a vegan market the first Saturday of every month in the main market and in 2017, MinorOak will hold ethical markets during the Vegan Market in Sneinton Market Square, focusing on ethically produced products and local makers.

Some of the products will be vegan, and all of them will have an ethical dimension to their use of materials and/or production. You’ll find goods that are upcycled, organic, all-natural, vegan, locally produced, reclaimed, direct trade and more. Talk to the sellers and find out what they’ve done to make sure you can feel good about buying.

Next Ethical Market: Saturday July 1st, 11:00am to 3:00pm.
