Last year, Sydney got its first ever vegan market — and this year, after hopping around town, it's heading to a new home. Conscientious consumers will be able to wander through the stalls at Entertainment Quarter from this Sunday, August 19, 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. Across more than 100 stalls, 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.
Other items on the agenda include a free talk series, free yoga and pilates sessions, and a sausage roll-eating competition. Entry is free and, after running from 9am–4pm on its first day in its new digs, the market will return on the third Sunday of each month.
