The Brooklyn Vegan Shop-Up we all know and love returns June 15th from 12pm – 6pm. The event will once again be held at Pine Box Rock Shop, NYC’s only all-vegan bar, for another day of food, drink and vegan wares you might not need, but just can’t resist.
If you’ve never been to Vegan Shop-Up, it’s basically a little vegan oasis in the middle of Bushwick. Pine Box becomes backed with dozens of cruelty-free vendors and filled with people squeezing by one another to sample items from new and up-and-coming companies that don’t have physical storefronts. It’s a lot of fun, but can get pretty crowded, so I’d suggest arriving early, especially because vendors tend to sell out during the event.
Some of my favorite vendors on the current Vegan Shop-Up list inclue Gone Pie (the brownies!), Meow Meow Tweet (soap and candles), Kitty Jones (cat toys), and Alchemy Creamery, which makes yummy gourmet push pops that I tried for the first time at The Seed.
The bottle of sunscreen you bought two years ago is expired, your roommate used up the last of your soap, and don’t you deserve a cupcake? See you June 15th!
