My friend Deb and I hit hit the Vegan ShopUp in Williamsburg. This open artisanal market at Pine Box Rock Shop was buzzing with life, vitality... and vegan food. If this were a country I would declare this destination Veganda. We sampled food and had a healthy delicious lunch of Ethiopian and Mexican food (not on one plate though). There were silk screened goods, chocolate fudge, crafts, personal care items, kombucha, salsa and sauces, apparel, posters, fair-trade incense... just take a look—people were hungry for more than just food.
