'Tis the season to be jolly, and all you Toronto-area vegetarians might have a little more reason to rejoice because a vegetarian holiday market is coming to Toronto next month!
Starting the festivities off a little earlier than most holiday markets, this holiday market by the Toronto Vegetarian Association will take place on November 19th at the scenic Artscape Wychwood Barns.
The one-day holiday market will feature 30 local brands and businesses that focus on all things cruelty-free, from food vendors and local restaurants, to clothing brands and artisan jewellery.
And of course, there will be an tons of holiday treats and goodies to choose from.
The organizers haven't released a list of participating vendors yet, but if this market is anything like the Veg Food Fest they threw in Toronto back in September, you might find the delicious donuts and baked treats from Bloor West's D-Beatstro or the vegan pizzas whipped up by Apiecalypse Now.
Oh, and we're hoping that the volunteers at this season's event are just as adorable as the ones in the summer:
Market hours are 12pm to 6pm and tickets are $5, which you can purchase here.

The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) has just filed a $90 million lawsuit against the City and Toronto Fire Services (TFS) over a massive fire that destroyed York Memorial Collegiate Institute in 2019.
The legal document claims that the fire department failed to do its job properly upon initial arrival, which resulted in the fire rekindling on May 7, the following day. TDSB also argues that Fire Chief Matthew Pegg attempted to sway them into believing the fires were separate.
"While the TDSB and our insurers had hoped to resolve this matter outside of court, we were left with no choice but to take legal action," stated the school.
In a press conference, Pegg commented on the lawsuit, saying, "I became aware of the statement of claim being filed today, a copy of one of the media articles was sent to me by a colleague. It is now in the hands of city legal, as is our process at any point of time for any legal action, and that's where it's best suited. It's a matter that will be managed by legal services and ultimately in the courts."
"I'm going to say it again, and again and again, because it makes me so happy," said Crombie at a press conference. "We will all be eligible for the vaccine as of 8 a.m. tomorrow."
Residents can book their vaccine by visiting Peel region's vaccine website and clicking "book appointment" after 8 a.m., Crombie said. The mayor also highlights the importance of the change by explaining that some of Peel's non-hot-spot areas still had higher case counts and hospitalization rates than other designated hot spots in the province.
Currently, all adults over the age of 18 who live in an Ontario hot spot are eligible to book a vaccine via the provincial booking system.
