Calling all plant-based food fans: Vancouver's first-ever all-vegan farmers' market is launching this summer, with a series of Saturday events.
The Vegan Farmers' Market is set to debut on Saturday, June 27, at Vancouver's Concord Community Park. Additional engagements will follow on July 11 and 18; August 1, 15, and 29; and September 12 and 26.
While of course, in its purest form, most farmers' markets do focus on naturally vegan products, like vegetables, fruits, and herbs, this all-vegan market will not have any meat, dairy, or other animal-sourced products for sale - it's totally plant-based vendors.
Applications are open for vendors currently, but we do know that there will be vegan food trucks on site at each market event, like Vancouver's popular Rolling Cashew.
Last summer, Vancouver was home to an inaugural vegan food and culture festival. However, this year, in light of province-wide restrictions on certain gatherings, a "festival" is not likely to happen. Instead, organizers of the Vegan Night Market event are curating this farmers' market for this summer. Farmers' markets in B.C. are allowed to operate, though distancing and safety measures will be in place.
When: Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (June 27; July 11, 18; Aug. 1, 15, 29; Sept. 12, 26)
Where: Concord Community Park - 50 Pacific Blvd, Vancouver
