A huge homage to all things plant-based is coming to Melbourne this autumn, as the Big Vegan Market returns to take over Carlton's Royal Exhibition Building from Saturday, April 20–Sunday, April 21.

The brainchild of Melbourne Vegan Eats, the two-day affair will showcase a huge lineup of over 200 vendors slinging a wide range of food and drinks, fashion, beauty, accessories, homewares, pantry staples and more. Shop a bevy of brands and products, and unearth some new must-haves, all under one roof and for a very reasonable entry fee of $7.

The weekend's lineup of food stalls includes I Should Be Souvlaki (home to some of the best vegan food in Sydney), Le Gourmand, Woking Amazing, Mork Chocolate, Tully'z Kitchen and Chas Chas Vegan. Other non-food related stalls have yet to be announced, though if past editions are anything to go by, this market will leave you completely spoilt for choice.

Previous stallholders have included the likes of apparel and lifestyle label Velvety, quirky accessories brands Jubly-Umph and Yes Buddy, Larrykin Dog Treats and Deadly Sins Cosmetics.

And due to the success of the previous Big Vegan Market, it will run twice this year. April is the first version, with the next set of dates yet to be announced. That is a big win for the vegan Melburnians and anyone else simply looking to cut back on their use of animal products.
