West Lindsey District Council has embraced the return of the new sustainable living traders who have committed to attend the Saturday market, three times this year.

Rainbow Monkey Events, organisers of the Vegan Market are returning to Gainsborough, where small businesses will be able to share their vegan and eco-friendly products with the people of Gainsborough and beyond.

Organiser Sam Brundish, from Rainbow Monkey Events, said: “We know there’s a great interest in veganism in the area from the two markets we held there in 2023. We’re proud to be able to support small, independent businesses, and give them a platform to showcase their products.”

Coun Jeanette McGhee, who represents the Gainsborough South West Ward at West Lindsey District Council, said: “We are delighted to be able to boost the offering at our markets as we continue to support small businesses.

“It is great to see the return of the Vegan market traders to Gainsborough as they will bring with them ethical and sustainable products, which was very popular with shoppers in 2023.

“A market has been held in Gainsborough for more than 800 years since King John granted the town its Market Charter in 1204.

“We hope everyone will continue to support all of our markets to help maintain the existing traders and encourage new traders to enhance the offer.”
