The Vegan Goods Market will only be held at The Source in Constantia for a few more times before moving to a new spot. I wanted to do a farewell post because of all the locations that the VGM has been held at so far, this one is by far my favourite! I just love being able to sit on the grass surrounded by trees and fellow vegans! It’s become my happy place and I’ll sure miss it but I look forward to seeing where the VGM will move to next!
Vegan Goods Market
The Vegan Goods Market is a must-attend for anyone that is interested in seeing what the vegan lifestyle is all about! The VGM is always packed with small businesses selling all sorts of amazing vegan goods: food, sweets, desserts, fresh produce, freshly baked bread, home products, body products, and more. I tend to avoid the plastic packaged items and gravitate towards the packaging-free and paper & glass packaged items.
Whenever I plan to go to the market, I take along a reusable knife, fork, spoon, straw, some food containers, a coffee cup, a bottle, some shopping bags, and also produce bags as I have often bought packaging-free fresh fruit, veg, and bread. I also often buy something to eat and drink there, which I ask them to put in my reusable container and cup/mug. I then find a spot on the grass with my husband and we enjoy our meal.
The reason I take more than one food container is so that if I wanted to buy some more food items to take home, I can do that without packaging. Most of the time though I buy some sort of delicious vegan baked good to take home, and most of the time it gets eaten the same day. I always end up carting two or three reusable shopping bags full of vegan goodies to the car and love being able to buy a wide variety of things from small businesses that most often make the items themselves.
If you have not been to the Vegan Goods Market in Constantia yet then I highly recommend you go before they move locations.
