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 March, April and May 2017, MinorOak will hold an ethical market during the vegan market, 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. Talk to the sellers and find out what they’ve done to make sure you can feel good about buying.

Ethical Market: Saturday May 6th, 11:00am to 3:00pm
