It was a busy day for Ipswich's vegan market on Sunday as shoppers looked to make the most of eased lockdown restrictions.
The market, run by Suffolk Market Events, was the first vegan market of the year after a successful 2020 and was held on Ipswich's Cornhill.
In total, 25 stall holders set up shop in the centre of town with everything from fudge to bagels on offer for visitors to try and buy.
"It's really good," said Rachel Dalton-Thorpe who runs healthy snack company Good to Go.
"It feels like a little bit of normal."
