Thanksgiving can be weird time for vegans — like you want to hang out and eat with your family and friends. But you might get a lot of questions about why you aren’t eating the turkey, or be told “you can have the salad.”
Feeling a bit left out sometimes makes the holiday less festive.
The Thanksgiving vegan pop-up shop at Morristown’s Laundromat Bar on Sunday, Nov. 18, 2018, may help make the holidays happier. All are welcome.
The vegan pop-up shop hosted by the New Jersey VegFest features vegan chefs from around the region serving their most delicious dishes, as well as live music, local craft beer, sustainable vegan fashions, skincare products and art. all perfect for gifting.
If you have a vegan friend coming for Thanksgiving be sure to stop by and get some treats to go!
