It's pretty hard out here for a vegetarian. With the likes of BBQ here in Texas, the options are very limited for non-meat items. Sometimes it's but only one side on an entire menu, and even then it's a boring salad. Dallas took notice of this problem and created the Texas Veggie Fair for all the vegetarians out there. This November 2, the festival will be in its new location at the Dallas Farmers Market.

You'll be able to attend the event for free so all you have to worry about is bringing cash for all those yummy, veg treats. This annual event is not only the largest veg fest in Texas, but full vegan too! Some of the vendors include Fineapple Vegan, Down To Earth Vegan Kitch, and El Palote Panadera. There's plenty more on the roster.
