Last year, Sydney got its first ever vegan market — and while it's usually held in Marrickville, this month it will be heading to Waterloo. Conscientious consumers will be able to wander through the stalls at at Commune from this Sunday, June 24, completely free to sample, sip, browse and buy, without having to worry one iota about flesh, leather or cruelty.
The happening is an initiative of Vegan NSW (previously known as The Vegan Society) and, for the most part, is all about food. You can expect to see Sydney's most popular vegan brands, peddling everything from burgers and wraps to cheese, chocolate and coffee. When you're done eating and drinking, you can spend time perusing fashion and homewares or kicking back to live entertainment.
To make the whole thing more enjoyable for everyone, the market will be ticketed with two sessions: 10am–1pm and 1–4pm. Entry is $3 for low income earners and $5 for everyone else. If you'd like to donate to Vegan NSW, you can choose the $10 ticket option.
