I went to Just V Show today with my Mum at Olympia. It is hosted in the same space as the Allergy Free From Show and the Love Natural Love You Show. This is my favourite vegan show/fayre of the year. It’s well spaced out and easy to navigate with all the stalls clearly labelled with numbers.
We received a free goody bag from the allergy show on the way in. I was really impressed with the contents. There were a few non-vegan items which I haven’t shown here. There was also a fizzy orange drink that I drank on the way home.
I bought this goody bag for £5 from TeenVGN who are an organisation who run support, networking and education for vegan and veggie teens. I got 3 mini mags a recipe mag, a bag, a sticker and 3 snack bars.
For lunch I had this deep fried seitan with coleslaw from Temple of Seitan. I saw lots of people post about these guys on Friday and I knew I wanted to try them. I wasn’t disappointed! They are currently doing vegan fayres with the plan to find some premises to open up in a permanent spot.
I bought these Dr Who shaped chocolates for my Husband from Cocoa Feliz. I love these guys and have bought their boxed chocolates a few times for presents. It’s nice to get a posh box of fully vegan chocs!
I bought this coconut sauerkraut from Rhythm. I’ve been getting into fermented foods recently and this benefits from the sauerkraut and the kefir in the coconut.
I love Follow Your Heart and always stock up at shows. I got the soya free vegenaise and a free tote bag!
I’m not in love with the flavoured mylks from Rebel Kitchen but I was impressed with their coconut yogurt and gave their coconut water a go as it was only £1.
I love a round up from Ananda Foods. These are made up of marshmallow, biscuit and chocolate. My Sister-in-law asked me to get her a mint one and I went for an orange one along with the original (they also do a gluten free version)
I have wanted to try the doughnuts from Ruby’s of London for a while now and I finally got my chance! I had a chai spiced and a white chocolate raspberry. These are more of a baked cakey doughnut than a deep fried one and went down a treat with me!
Lastly from me, were some supplies from Ecozone which were 50% off. I love their ethos and that they are completely vegan!
My Mum got two packets of Linda McCartney burgers with a cool bag for £2! (Although she had asked for one pack to be sausages!). Blue Sheese from Bute Island Foods, nutritional yeast from Marigold Health Foods and some cruelty free perfume inspired by Marc Jacobs “Daisy” from Eden Perfumes.
I love meeting the people behind the products when I go to shows and find out why they chose to make them and where they source their ingredients. All the samples let you try before you buy and the deals are great too!
If you have a vegan fayre/market/show going on local to you I would recommend you attend and see what is available, remember to wear your fat pants!
