Are you taking part in Veganuary? Or just looking to try something a bit different? Take a look at our roundup of seven places to try vegan sausage rolls in Suffolk, including Portman Road stadium and even West Suffolk Hospital.
Since Greggs launched their incredibly popular vegan sausage rolls in January 2019, vegans and foodies have been flocking to their shops across Suffolk - but where else in Ipswich, Felixstowe and Bury St Edmunds can you try one?
Food! By Lizzi
Long before Greggs brought their vegan sausage rolls to the masses Food! By Lizzi were selling their 'savoury vegan rolls' at markets across Suffolk.
Lizzi Flaherty, 37, who runs Food! By Lizzi said: "I am pretty sure Food! By Lizzi is the longest running vegan business in Bury St Edmunds, possibly even Suffolk.
