West End was Brisbane's place to go for vegan food long before vegan was cool. So it's no surprise the the inner city suburb is now home to one of the biggest vegan markets in Brisbane.
Good vegan food can be hard to find, but Brisbane vegans can get their foodie fix twice a month thanks to the Brisbane Vegan Markets. On the second and fourth Sunday of the month, dozens of food producers and suppliers dish up a variety of vegan delicacies from their West End location.
Skip breakfast, because these markets have something to suit every palate. Try a cocomari taco from The Coconut Shak, stock up on lunchtime treats from vegan French bakers The V Word, and finish up with a caramel fudge brownie sundae from I Should Coco. For non-edible vegan must-haves, pick up a bag, T-shirt or wallet from Vegan Leather Co.
The market's purpose is twofold – to support vegan companies and small businesses, and to act as a conduit between sellers and members of the vegan (or vegan curious) community. Delicious and ethical!
