Vegans of Melbourne, clear your calendars — you now have plans on the first Saturday of every month. From September 2 onwards, Vegan Mini Market is your new regular go-to for animal-free items, with the first event taking place at Abbotsford Convent from 8am.
For its initial outing, the fresh addition to the vegan lineup has amassed quite the array of vegetable-loving businesses, so arriving with a full wallet is recommended. Munch on some plant-based Asian street food from Woking Amazing, eat your way through an array cruelty-free comfort nibbles from Yay! Food, or sign up for jam-packed lunchboxes from Good Freaking Food. Or, grab natural bath and beauty products from Polished Petals, stock up on handmade garments from Leo the Label and listen to the sounds of Futuro Vega*Pop.
Sweet treats from Lady Rawsome and the organic cocoa goodness of Girl Made Chocolate are also on the menu, and the list goes on. The first market also falls on Vegan T-Shirt day, which is all about wearing appropriate attire to raise awareness about animals, so dress accordingly.
