Yesterday was the first of three Vegan Markets happening this summer! What is a Vegan Market you may be asking..It is a community joining together in a location full of vendors of all types that sell vegan products, food, art, and much more along with non-profits and lots of smiling people! It is a safe space for people to ask questions about veganism and learn of this amazing world, while raising awareness of products we can purchase to help make a difference for ourselves, the environment and the animals.
Organically Grown Muscle is an up and coming new vegan gym! Anthony Creighton is the owner of O.G. Muscle and also the coordinator of the Vegan Summer Market. He is passionate about helping people strengthen through plant based food and without any supplements! He loves helping all types of people but specifically people over the age of 45 and people who are recovering from injuries. He is also a great friend and inspiration. Anthony and I recently partnered to create this video sharing more about O.G. Muscle and two testimonials from Jackie and Buffy, two of his most inspiring clients!
Lava Lava Donuts joined the Vegan Summer Market last year and the response they received was absolutely incredible. Since last year's market, Lava Lava Donuts has expanded out from Olympia to two markets in Tacoma the Proctor and Point Ruston markets. This year they sold out again so if you want to try these delicious treats, make sure to get there early!
Below are some more of the Incredible Vegan Vendors that showed up to the summer market. There were many more. I'll make sure to share more images next month of some of the vendors not shown here such as Vego food truck, Heartwood Haven, Mispit Rescues, Happy Belly and more! Make sure to visit the next two markets on Sunday July 21 and August 18. Also look out for a video of this awesome event later this week!!
