This year we are designating an area exclusively for vendors to provide an international selection of vegan products and services. Our International Vegan Marketplace will highlight tasty and healthful plant-based vegan foods from many cultures around the world.
We share a universal responsibility to maintain a healthy planet for us humans, all other living beings, and for the many generations of people and animals to come. Eating clean, plant-based, vegan food and avoiding the use of animal by-products are two of the best ways to achieve and sustain this goal!
