Vegans, assemble. The highly anticipated Big Vegan Market is back this May for one weekend on the 11 and 12 May from 10 am - 6 pm. Melbourne Vegan Eats are the minds behind this event, and given the colourful success of last year’s market, we can expect an even bigger turn out this year.
So, there will be over 220 vendors. I repeat, 220 vendors. Basically, this means there are endless opportunities for you to spend that dosh on all the vegan nibbles, drinks, crafts, fashion and skincare. And for all the vegans out there, you can let your guard down having to always check the ingredients list, because everything will be completely plant-based. Get ready to impulse buy absolutely everything.
One of the vendors attending will be Ace Cookies. These guys make a hefty vegan ice cream sandwich with a slab of the most decadent ice cream filling. We want ten.
Eat Cannoli is also making an appearance. We’ve talked about these guys in the past, and how we cannot get enough of their delicious Italian cannoli with a twist. You can expect fantastic traditional recipes, as well as coconut pannacotta cannoli, Cookies and Cream, Lemon Cheese Cake, and Apricot cannoli.
Fork Mama will also be there; is a travelling kitchen creating both hearty savoury and delicate sweet dishes inspired from Thai cuisine.
Now, we can’t possibly mention every single vendor, but some of the line-up includes ACE Cookies, Curry Up Now, Eat Cannoli, Fork Mama, Greener Life, Hamsa Hummus Bar, Lord of the Fries, PolyPop, The Vegan Dairy and Le Petit Bouton. If you want a more detailed look into it, the full list of vendors is available on the website. Check it out.
