The Greenpeace Award for best trader in the Green Fields was awarded to Buddhafield Café, who serve a variety of vegan food and have created their own recycling station.

Once considered an invasive species, Crayfish Bob have created a green food source from the fish, and this won them the Sustainable Food Award.

The Ethical Trade Award went to Fairground, whose handmade crafts are all labelled to let customers know who had made them and where the money goes. The NCASS Award for Energy Efficiency went to Ooh La La, a fully gluten free café running on biodiesel and working directly with coffee producers to fund schools.

With votes cast via Twitter, The Ethical Chef won the People’s Choice awarded, serving up a very popular vegetarian chili alongside their foraged and seasonal produce.

Throughout the week traders were surveyed according to a variety of criteria including energy efficiency, use of recycling and the sourcing of their products or ingredients.

A variety of prizes come with the prestige of the awards, including a free pitch for the Gold Award winners, half price pitches for the Silver Award winners and champagne donated by Avalon Bars plus Fairtrade and organic goodies for the rest.
