Toronto Vegetarian Food Fair
Every year the Toronto Vegetarian Association puts on a Food Fair at Harborfront Centre. Admission is free, and there are tons of vegetarian and vegan businesses there, so it’s worth checking out if you are interested in vegetarian or vegan lifestyles. They’ve got food vendors (some of which give out free samples), health and wellness booths, vegetarian clothing, cookbooks, reusable bags and bottles, cooking ingredients, and even pots and pans. There is also an entire tent dedicated to ‘political’ causes like PETA, Earthroots, and of course the Vegetarian Association itself.
The event advertises itself as ‘BYOR’: Bring your own reuseables (plates and cutlery). However, if you don’t have your own, don’t worry – a lot of the food is served on a stick kabob style, or on napkins.
Today is the last day of 2008’s fair. Unfortunately it looks like it’s going to rain most of the day, but most of the vendors are in tents, so you shouldn’t get too soggy if you want to check it out.
