Last weekend was the 2013 edition of the Toronto Vegetarian Food Festival. This is honestly the best weekend of my year! I’ve been going for several years, mostly for the food, but also for the speakers, demonstrations and information about animal rights and advocacy groups. I was very impressed with the amount of gluten-free options this year. I usually avoid desserts and heavily processed food, EXCEPT for this wonderful weekend in September. I buy whatever tickles my fancy, and then go into a sugar coma post-festival. I actually bring containers so that I can buy treats and even dinner items and eat them later or freeze them.
This year I was only able to make it out on Saturday, which was a very rainy and cool day. The good news is that there were very few lines. I think I would definitely aim to go back on a rainy day next year, too! I also left my cellphone somewhere during the festival, and some nice person left it at the lost and found. Thanks, stranger!
Below is what I got at the festival.
