Seattle VegFest 2013 – New Food Finds

On a recent trip to Seattle, I just happen to stumble upon VegFest 2013.  I had never been to one, so I thought I for sure needed to get up and see it.  Little did I know, this little gathering is very popular here in Seattle and I had to wait in a very long line to get in despite showing up 15 minutes before the door opened!  I knew then, I was going to find some great new things.

Vegfest primarily is made up of food vendors – both Vegetarian and Vegan options.  Many of them new start-ups local to the Northwest area.  It’s a good thing they supply you with a grocery bag when you walk in because you will leave with lots of samples!  I thought I’d share some of my favorite new finds! 

 

Coconut Bliss – Organic Coconut Ice Cream – Mmmmm

Honest Tea

 

The Veggie Grill – The food is AWESOME!

Mighty-O Donuts – Vegan Donuts that are simply incredible!

As you can see, I sampled a lot of foods and found a lot I loved!  Many of these are available not just in the Northwest, but nation wide or can be ordered on-line.  I’d love to hear from you if you have tried any of these and how you liked them!

Happy Eating!
