Orlando gets a new vegan food hall, alternative dairy brand Oatly releases two nostalgia-laced flavors, and other top news.
Main House Market—an LGBTQIA+-friendly and plant-based co-op based in the Orlando area—will be relocating to the Milk District after facing discrimination in their previous neighborhood. The new Main House Market is set to open its doors on June 8 and will continue to host several other vegan concepts, such as The Kind Cleaver, Vegan Scoops Orlando, and Retro Roast. Main House Market will still feature its extensive collection of homemade and local kombucha and has plans to host many more inclusive events.
Oatly—one of the leading dairy-alternative brands—announced last week the addition of two new ice cream flavors. Banana Split is reminiscent of the classic diner treat, while Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is made without gluten for all those gluten-free folks who still want to enjoy the classic flavor! Both options are rolling out to retailers across the US and can be found in the ice cream sections of many leading stores, such as Vons, Stater Bros, and Albertsons.
Kula is a gluten-free and vegan ice cream brand with a scoop shop in San Diego and retail partnerships with dozens of local businesses. This week, Kula launched three new ice cream sandwich flavors into 25 retail stores across Southern California. Made with thick, gluten-free cookies and ice cream spun with local ingredients and fresh fruit, Kula’s new vegan ice cream sandwiches can be found at The Manchester Grand Hyatt, Cardiff Seaside Market, and more.

And at a price point of just $20, this period underwear is more accessible than some of the other leading brands.
