Burgers, nacho boats, and hard kombucha hope to attract steady crowds at this environmentally friendly vegan night market.
From the same folks who brought you Rollin’ Roots comes a vegan night market in the heart of Miramar! Veggie Gang Market is curated with small business owners in mind, and there is a conscious effort toward minimizing the market’s environmental impact, an aspect often ignored at public events.
Veggie Gang Vegan Night Market
Veggie Gang Market is a vegan night market held in the parking lot of Babe Kombucha on the first and third Friday of each month. The market’s reduced vendor fees based on a sliding scale attract owners regardless of their ability to pay an upfront cost. “So far I have paid out over $10,000 for new equipment, tents, and packaging items for vendors who are just starting and have a great product but no budget. This market was started for the needs of the community, and it will always be just that,” said Avonte Hartsfield from Veggie Gang.
Vegan Pizza and Burgers
You have your Watermelon Mojito or Mango Mimosa Babe Hard Kombucha in hand, now it’s time for some vegan pizza and burgers! Try Uprising pizza’s Mushroom Madness served on leavened sourdough with white garlic cream sauce and roasted oyster mushrooms, or go with Veggie Fam’s West Coast Bacon Cheeze Burger. You’ll also spot Rollin’ Roots (making a triumphant return after losing their business due to major fire damage), Nomad Vegan Eats, and several other vegan food trucks, food stalls, and hand-craft vendors!
An Emphasis on Zero Waste
There are multiple measures in place to aid Veggie Gang in accomplishing its goal of being as zero-waste as possible. For one, there are no trash cans on site. Instead, look for composting bins (courtesy of Feed The Soil in Vista, CA) or receptacles for your bottles and cans. Additionally, all vendors are required to use compostable materials and packaging.
The next market is scheduled for June 3 from 4-8pm at 7727 Formula Place, San Diego, CA 92121. Follow @veggiegangmarkets on Instagram for updates.
