Veggie Fair 2019 Now at Farmers’ Market

Sep 11, 2019 02:46PM
Texas Veggie Fair, the largest and longest-running vegan festival in the state, will host its 10th annual event from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., November 2, at the Dallas Farmers Market. Weightlifter Kendrick Farris is among the featured guests. He is a three-time U.S. Olympian and one of the plant-based athletes in the upcoming film The Game Changers.

Moving to the Dallas Farmers’ Market, Veggie Fair  will take over The Shed and the adjacent Dallas Sports Park. It’s the first time to be held in November, which is widely celebrated as World Vegan Month. Texas Veggie Fair saw 15,000 attendees in 2018, showcasing a variety of plant-based foods, products from local and national vendors, speakers, cooking demos, live music, craft beer, yoga and kids’ activities, and more.

Feminist-vegan advocate and acclaimed author Carol Adams will speak about her award-winning Protest Kitchen , and eco-entrepreneurs the Sustainable Duo will give their Let’s Get Zero-Wasted presentation. Vegan electro-pop singer/songwriter Miss Krystle will perform on the Blue Circle Media Stage, where local musicians and DJs will also be featured throughout the day.

Eddie Garza, senior food and nutrition manager for the Humane Society of the United States and a leading figure in the movement to reform food systems in Latin American communities, will offer cooking demonstrations in both English and Spanish. Beyond Meat, local Spiral Diner & Bakery and Viridescent Kitchen, a new women-owned vegan kitchen  will all be providing meatless goodies.

Texas Veggie Fair was founded in 2010 to bring together, educate and expand the plant-based community regionally, nationally and worldwide; display alternatives to the norm of destructive, violent food and product production; and provide a positive, entertaining, and educational experience in a fun, welcoming environment.

Admission is free. Location: 900 S. Harwood St., Dallas. For more information, visit TexasVeggieFair.com.
