Sydney Vegan Market
Time Out says
This monthly market of all things vegan is back, bigger and greener
Traditionally held on the third Sunday of every month, Sydney Vegan Market brings together more than 100 stalls selling 100 per cent plant-based food and drink, homewares, fashion, art and cosmetics from some of the biggest names in cruelty-free shopping.
Sydney's flagship vegan shopping event takes over the Entertainment Quarter at Moore Park, where punters have plenty of room to spread out for a safe and enjoyable day of physically distanced and cruelty-free activities.
A day at Sydney Vegan Market is about more than shopping and eating. Start the morning mindfully and set your intention with a free yoga session, and catch sets from local music talents on the mainstage as you peruse the stalls with a coffee or chai in hand and engage with education and activism. On the foodie front, some of the Market’s most popular stallholders are back to slinging vegan delights – we’re talking cheese, banh mi, souvlaki, cookies, chocolates, cake, mac n cheese, burgers, dumplings, and pasta.
If you want to fill your boot with ethical goodies, you’ll be pleased to know there’s 2000 car parking spots and heaps of green space to spread out on a picnic blanket to assess your purchases. Of course, one of the biggest draws is the dogs of Sydney Vegan Market. The pup game is so strong that it has warranted its own Instagram account.
The market is committed to protecting the Earth and is a single-use plastics free event. Don’t forget to BYO your (clean) containers and cups (they’ve worked out a way to use them safely). Vendors supply food and drink using bio-plastic and cardboard packaging, which can all go straight into on-site composting bins.
The market was one of the first large scale events to make a come back after lockdown, and we spoke to market manager Jones about how they acheived it while being gentle on the environment.
During hiatus, the Vegan NSW team, which runs Sydney Vegan Markets and its Newcastle counterpart, and now also Alive Festival on the coast, was not merely hibernating. They set up the virtual Vegan NSW Marketplace, and launched VTV, delivering educational, supportive and interactive webinars covering topics like anti-oppression, art therapy and how to become vegan. Follow Sydney Vegan Market on Instagram and Facebook to keep in the loop.
