This is probably the first monthly vegan market ever in London (correct me in the comments if I am wrong) and it was announced today by the legendary blogger Fat Gay Vegan, which is organising this event in collaboration with Eat Work Art and Hackney Downs Studios.
If you remember last year’s Vegan Christmas Market, it got super busy, so make sure you get your ass there early to avoid any disappointments. Last year we were there showcasing for the first time our 100% vegan pie and mash and it was great, we couldn’t barely deal with the demand, but this year we are prepared!
FGV prepared something different for this year events, which is a stallholder policy meaning that he carefully selected people who are often overlooked/sidelined at mainstream vegan events, traders who identify as BME, LGBTQ, people with disabilities and/or as women. And I, Carla and baker dealer in this company, am woman (hence my lady name), Brazilian and black, feel special to be part of this and now feels like screaming a big FUCK YOU on the face of all those who laughed at my afro hair, the way I speak a foreign language and who said I would never succeed.
The upcoming dates for the Vegan Market are:
18.03.2017 – RSVP at the Facebook event page
Stall line up for Saturday 18.03.2017 is as follows:
+ Young Vegans – we will bring our special pie and mash and gluten free peanut butter brownies
+ Peanut Butter Bakery – they are our BFFs and you can find them every Saturday and Sunday at Boiler House in Brick Lane. They do super tasty freshly cooked donuts
+ Big V London – the borough market stars that do gourmet and gigantic burgers with sweet potato fries
+ Vegan Delice – our fellow street food trader from Tottenham Green Market will bring her famous cupcakes
+ Crawl Arts – up-cycled clothing with environmental illustrations
+ Rupert’s Street – homemade, healthy, seasonal food that has been locally sourced
+ Temple of Seitan – one of the best vegan food in London and they happen to do the the best fried chicken we ever had!
+ Club Mexicana – we simply love their beer-battered cheese fries and they will also bring their tacos and burritos
+ Café SoVegan – seitan burgers with all the trimmings, mac and cheese and cheesecakes
+ Green Bay London – the only 100% vegan supermarket located in South Kensington will be selling chocolate bars, whipped cream, marshmallows and assorted vegan snacks/groceries
There will be also a bar serving beer bottles and cans bar as well as a few resident artists and traders from within Hackney Downs Studios.
