Sunday 7 April 2019
Albert Hall Yarralumla, Canberra
The Living Green Vegan Market returns for a third time on Sunday 7 April 2019 at the beautiful Albert Hall in Yarralumla from 10am to 3pm. Entry is FREE.
The Living Green Vegan Market features local and interstate businesses selling 100% plant-based food and a range of products containing no animal ingredients and that do not test on animals.
Organiser Tracey Lofthouse describes the market as ethical and cruelty-free. “Everyone wants to be environmentally friendly, and we’ve seen so much behavioural change around this, as well as legislative change, with the plastic bag ban and container deposit scheme. But more and more people are also making the connection between being environmentally-friendly and having a plant-based diet.” Ms Lofthouse said that “Adopting a plant-based (vegan) diet is probably the most effective change anyone could make as an individual to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and live a more compassionate lifestyle.”
Nicole Tikvah, the owner of a new local business and qualified baker who runs Tikvahs Bakery from her modest Southside kitchen, says markets in Canberra make all the long baking hours worthwhile. Ms Tikvah explains “Community markets are a great way to connect with potential clients and also showcase veganism. The Living Green Vegan Market is a fantastic initiative by a small group of like-minded people who care about the environment and getting to know their suppliers. Attendees appreciate good-quality handmade wares and treats that are also beneficial the environment.”
Ms Lofthouse attributed growing awareness of the environmental problems caused by animal agriculture, as well as increasing concern about ethical issues for animals, to the rise more generally of vegan markets and festivals across Australia. “There are now regular vegan markets in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Gosford and Mullumbimby, just to name a few.”
“The weather is looking wonderful for the day, and there is always a great vibe at the Market. We’ll have delicious food on offer including ramen, Greek baked goods and crepes, as well as cakes, chocolate, desserts, coffee and fresh juices. There will be not-for-profit organisations promoting social justice issues, and live entertainment. This is a family-friendly event, and dogs on leads are welcome in the grounds around the hall.”
