If you've ever been (or tried to be) vegan, you'll know there's a certain bliss that comes with having a whole smorgasbord of plant-based products at your disposal. So we expect squeals aplenty at the news that the Big Vegan Market is back, and will once again grace the sprawling interior of Carlton's Royal Exhibition Building on May 12 and 13.
Kicking off at 10am on both days, the event pulls together a dizzying, all-vegan array of food, drinks, craft, beauty and fashion, with more than 200 vendors signing up to showcase their cruelty-free wares.
Head in to snack on treats from the likes of Fitzroy dessert bar Girls & Boys and Vietnamese eatery The Pham Sisters, while indulging in some guilt-free retail therapy, spying sustainably-crafted threads from Velvety and animal-free wares from The Cruelty Free Shop. Given the stacks of businesses involved, they're really just a few of the goodies on offer. Jump on the Facebook page for the day's full lineup of vegan vendors.
