Kettering Vegan Market will be taking over the Market Place in the heart of the town this summer. A hand-selected assortment of street food, artisanal baked goods, craft cheeses, handmade cosmetics, ethical apparel and jewellery, arts and crafts, and charity booths will be available at the event on Saturday, June 17.
As part of the council's calendar of events for the town this year, the market is run by Kettering Town Council and the Vegan Market Co.
