If you eat, drink and live vegan, this is the event for you
However you feel about veganism becoming more and more accepted into the mainstream, it's definitely good news for the dedicated vegetarians and vegans. The Big Vegan Market is flying the vegan flag with pride in May at the Royal Exhibition Building.
You can expect over 60 stalls selling vegan food and drinks, fashion, craft goods, and even skincare and cosmetics. This is one market where you don't have to ask around, you can be sure that every product sold is animal and cruelty-free. Just some of the vendors include:
The market is run by Melbourne Vegan Eats, which started as an Instagram account sharing vegan food (both in vegan venues and non-vegan ones) around Melbourne. Since the account started, it has become a valuable resource for non-meat eaters to find the best vegan feed around town. Melburnians got a taste of what's to come at the Big Vegan Market last year at the Brew and Food Fest in Brunswick and no doubt they'll be coming out in full force this time around.
