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 October 7th, 11:00am to 3:00pm.

Meowmuchgifts was born out of Heidi’s passion for animals. We donate some products each year at Xmas time to the PDSA to sell In their shops. Fabric is largely sourced by myself, family and friends on travels so carbon footprint to deliver my fabric is lower than it would if I just ordered off the internet. All products are made in a smoke and pet free home.
