Veggie lovers united last month for Charlotte’s annual Vegan festival – Vegfest! This free, family and pooch friendly event featured a huge array of vegan friendly vendors offering veggie love and knowledge.
Plaza Midwood, on the outskirts of downtown Charlotte, was lined with non-profit organizations, artisans, and food vendors eager to share their love for a compassionate, vegan lifestyle. The Produce Box set up camp and had the pleasure to meet and chat with a bunch of produce-lovin’ festival goers. Neighborhood coordinators Julie and Bridget answered questions and helped us spread the word.
Charlotte residents flocked to The Produce Box to chat about how the whole process works, what kind of boxes and produce are available, and even how to become a Neighborhood Coordinator.
A day full of sunshine and vegan alternatives, people kept cool with local iced coffee, King of Pops popsicles, and free samples of kombucha tea. Festival goers also enjoyed samples from a variety of food vendors such as Roots Hummus, Oil Vey!, and Chosen Roasters.
