NYC’s Annual Vegan Valentine’s Shop-Up Event Offering Pickup
Get your love-inspired goodies from this vegan pop-up shop!
Vegan Shop-Up hails as NYC’s first all-vegan pop-up market and has served specialty vegan items in the city since 2011. On Saturday, February 13, the 11th annual Vegan Valentine’s Shop-Up will become VSUValentines2GO, in which shoppers can preorder, pre-pay, and pick up their items to go. There will be two pickup sites to choose from—Pine Box Rock Shop in Brooklyn and Riverdel in Manhattan. Guests must shop from a minimum of three vendors to place an order.
This year’s vendors will include local favorites with exciting offerings such as Riverdel (Valentine’s charcuterie box with a gluten-free option), WillyB Bakes (double chocolate heart bun with fudge brownie filling), Monk’s Meats (seitan steak meal box for two), Plant-Baked (mix and match from a menu with cookies, spicy cheese croissants, pastries, dog treats, and more), Insatiable Vegan (gumbo with housemade grain sausage and lobster mushrooms), Fine & Raw (Love is the Answer gift box that includes truffles and assorted chocolate bars), Freakin’ Vegan (Philly cheesesteak sliders—includes three), and Pine Box Rock Shop (Valentine’s cocktail box).
The order form will be released this Friday, 1/29, and will be available for preorders through Sunday 2/7. The full menus will be launched on Wednesday, 1/27. To view the menu and to order items, visit veganshopup.com. You can also follow Vegan Shop-Up on Instagram (@veganshopup)for information on their events, raffles, and more!
VSUValentines2GO will also be donating a portion of the February vendor fees to NICE, an NYC nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of immigrant workers and their families, focusing on workers’ rights, skill training, certification, fair wages, job placement, and dignified employment in a safe workplace.
