Vedast (died c. 540) was an early bishop in the Frankish realm.

He was venerated in Belgium as well as England (from the 10th century) where he was known as Saint Foster.

The spread of his cult was aided by the presence of Augustinians from Arras in England in the 12th century.

Three ancient churches in England (in London (St Vedast Foster Lane), Norwich and Tathwell) were dedicated to him.

His feast is on 6 February.
