NYC's First Vegan Shop-Up Celebrates Sixth Anniversary!
The market took place between 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Pine Box Rock Shop, a local vegan bar, and included Valentine’s Day themed items and even free goodie bags for all the patrons! Just some of the stuff people left with or enjoyed right on the spot included heart-shaped cakes, tempeh burgers, specialty cheeses, pretzel cinnamon buns, caramels, peanut butter cups, gluten-free and raw sweets, as well as skin care items and clothing!
For those who missed out on the day’s activities–and to those under the age of 21 as the event was held in a bar, don’t worry, because there will be another Vegan Shop-Up coming up this very month! On February 28, the last Sunday of the month, vegan footwear and clothing store MooShoes will be hosting this awesome event, which will of course be all-ages! MooShoes is located on 78 Orchard Street and the Shop-Up will run from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The initial launch of the Vegan Shop-Up in NYC was in 2011, and it has been going strong ever since, organizing monthly (or more) events. To check out some of the incredible vendors, or to have your business become one, check out the list right here.
