New Jersey VegFest Launches New Online Vegan Market
Kendra Arnold and Marisa Sweeney, co-founders of New Jersey VegFest, are launching an online vegan marketplace called The Vegan Local. Find the most popular vegan foods such as The Freakin’ Vegan Mac-n-Cheese, Blackbird pizza, Yeah Dawg root vegetable hot dogs, and plant-based lifestyle products.
Marisa told VegOut New York, “The Vegan Local is an extension of our mission at the New Jersey VegFest, which is to promote local plant-based and vegan small businesses. These small businesses are working at the ground level to grow the plant-based movement in our communities by making eco-friendly and cruelty-free options more available, and plant-based living more feasible. Although we intend to continue the NJ VegFest events in the future, we have pivoted our efforts to The Vegan Local, an online vegan specialty market. People who visit the online market will be able to search by their location to see what products are created local to them, or get vegan food and lifestyle products shipped to them from over state lines."
The Vegan Local features a variety of vegan brands providing made-to-order plant-based food. The online market will also feature locally-made clothing and fashion lines, beauty and skin care products, art and craft supplies, and even products for your pets! The market will open May 31st.
