This summer, New York City will introduce its first Vegan Night Market, making culinary history.
This green gastronomic gathering, organized by MHG Events, the company behind the well-known Uptown, Brooklyn, and Bronx Night Markets, will take place every Tuesday night at Central Park’s Wollman Rink from June 6 to October 10.
From 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., a wide range of vegan vendors will provide a delectable selection of guilt-free food and drink options. Each vendor was carefully chosen based on their menu selections, business practices, and, of course, the mouthwatering taste of their plant-based delicacies.
The Vegan Night Market is entirely free to enter, with individual food and drink items costing anywhere from $5 to $15.
The variety of vegan cuisine available reflects the rich cultural mosaic of New York City.
There is something for everyone, whether you’re a committed vegan or just curious about what plant-based food has to offer.
There are options from the Caribbean to Colombian, Chinese to Mexican, American to a wide variety of women-owned options.
Some of the best vegan chefs in the city are represented in this year’s vendor lineup, including, to name a few, The GingerShot Man, Mao’s Bao, Secret Vegan Kitchen, Pinche Vegana NYC, Lillie Handmade Aromatherapy Products, and Sip & Savor BX.
These companies, which are owned by about 70% people of color and 50% women, reflect the diversity of New York City.
For instance, Sip & Savor is proud to present its line of non-alcoholic drinks that are inspired by the cultures of Anguilla, Antigua, and Aruba.
Similarly to that, Nadas Colombian Rainbow Empanadas, another participant, is eager to spread the word about the genuine flavor of their vegan empanadas.
The founder of MHG Events, Marco Shalma, sees the Vegan Night Market as a venue where individuals can delve into the world of plant-based cuisine while also promoting ethical and sustainable food choices.
