2012 marks the third year for the Texas State Veggie Fair. We made the trip up to Dallas for last year’s event, and it has grown explosively since then. This year’s selection of vendors and exhibitors was greatly expanded, and the new venue at Reverchon Park had more than enough room for the larger number of booths. To top it all off, there was convenient free parking at the garage across the street.
We’re too beat from our weekend of fried-food gluttony and the long drive to do a proper write up, but our personal highlights included:
- Deep fried vegan cinnamon rolls (what?!?!) and vegan corn dogs from the geniuses at Tough Cookie Bakery!
- Meeting the Vegan Black Metal Chef in the vegan flesh!!
- Finally getting a chance to taste the bacon-style seitan (now known as “Hickory”) from Upton’s Naturals
… coming soon for realz!!!
I can’t wait to see what the Texas State Veggie Fair has in store for us next year, but until then, we have Texas VegFest 2013 to look forward to! Who knew that Texas, of all places, would be the home to so many great veg events?
