Maryland Vegan Restaurant Week Starts Today
The month-long celebration is a chance for omnivores and plant eaters alike to try vegan dishes at their favorite local restaurants.
If you live in the Maryland area, March is about to get a lot more vegan! Maryland Vegan Restaurant Week is back for the 10th year from March 4-27, 2022.
More Vegan Options in Maryland
Maryland Vegan Restaurant week is a bi-annual event designed to give local restaurants a chance to add more plant-based items to their menu. From March 4-27, participating restaurants will offer special vegan items to their customers. Customers will then have the opportunity to vote on their favorite items.
The aim of the event is to increase awareness about the benefits of a plant-based diet through an engaging community-based experience, while also striving to make plant-based food more accessible to all.
Participating restaurants include several prominent omnivorous restaurants such as Paulie Gee’s, Sporty Dog, and Fire and Rice, who will all be providing new and exclusive vegan options. Many other vegan and vegetarian restaurants will also be participating with exclusive menu items for the month. Land of Kush—half of the founding team that started Maryland Vegan Restaurant Week—will be bringing back its eggplant parmesan, a huge customer favorite.
Win Prizes and Try New Vegan Food at Maryland Vegan Restaurant Week
Maryland Vegan Restaurant Week started in 2017 as Baltimore Restaurant Week and has since grown to include the entire state of Maryland due to its increasing popularity. This event was founded by Naijha Wright-Brown of The Land of Kush and Samantha Claassen of Golden West Cafe.
This year, the founders are planning to ramp up the event, adding raffle prizes, swag bags, and a Bingo game to encourage customers to try as many items as they can from participating restaurants.
