For years, many other cities have had vegetarian festivals; it is wonderful to see San Diego catching up with the trend. This weekend is the second annual San Diego Veg Festival in North Park along Herman Ave between University Ave. and North Park Way. The main event is Saturday, Nov. 9 from 10 am – 5 pm but there is also a Sunday brunch at Casa de Luz from 10 am – 2 pm. Saturday’s gathering will have speakers, food demos and samples, an eco-friendly fashion show, and even features as specific as making your own dog biscuits and vegan cheese making!
Also, Moncai Vegan is opening a restaurant any day in North Park and fans are eagerly awaiting. Their spot will be 3131 University Ave, San Diego, CA 92104. Their brunches at San Diego Public Market and food at other farmer’s markets receive raves.
