It's apt that the brainchild of two passionate vegans like Simon and Miriam have their vegan market, the first monthly vegan market established in Melbourne, at such an iconic, popular and amazing venue. Join the fun and warm atmosphere of the Convent and head out to the Vegan Market of Melbourne on Saturday 6 July 2019 from 9am to 3pm. Entry is FREE to this ethical, sustainable, good for the environment event. Other market dates for this monthly vegan market to take note of (always Saturdays at the same venue and same times) and put in your diary for 2019 are - 3 Aug; 7 Sep; 5 Oct & 2 Nov.
You'll find an eclectic mix of stalls filled with food, fashion, art, craft, education, live entertainment, free workshops and children's activities. Surrounded by beautiful gardens and historic buildings, it's a great family day out and for friends to gather and catch up in the gardens; not to mention the Convent's own eateries that also has a lot of vegan options on offer.
While you're there, you may well want to stay on, have dinner, and enjoy the After Party (tickets HERE $27.47 incl of fees) hosted by Afro Hub, Abbotsford Convent and Leaps and Bounds Music Festival. It goes from 4 to 10.30pm on Sat 6 Jul 2019 - same day as the vegan market. It's a live music experience showcasing some of the city's best up and coming artists. Good food, good music and a live lounge can be expected so don't miss out.
