The hubby and I finally had some time to visit the Quarry Farmer’s Market this past Sunday. We met up with my sister, her husband, and my baby niece Lillian around noon to check out the market. The weather was beautiful and we didn’t have to wait long at each booth we visited. I took some time talking with some of the vendors to learn more about their products and to find vegan options. I didn’t have to look hard. Aside from all the fresh fruits and vegetables, there was also a variety of vegan-friendly food and drink to choose from. This isn’t a definitive list of vegan products at Quarry Farmer’s Market, but it’s a great start.

The Gardeners Feast
The first booth we came across that advertised their vegan options was The Gardener’s Feast. Reasonably priced at $3, their vegan tamales come in three varieties: Spinach and Caramelized Onions, Mushrooms, and Nopalitos Cactus. The tamale I tried was moist and delicious. Make sure you visit their booth early, before they run out! www.TheGardenersFeast.com

Buddha’s Brew Kombucha
I didn’t think I would like Kombucha until I tried Buddha’s Brew. This tasty probiotic drink was a sweet, carbonated treat. Our Kombucha was one of 4-5 blends on tap, poured into a lovely glass mason jar. I plan on trying their other flavors to see which I like best. Nearly all flavors are vegan-friendly, just ask to see which may contain honey. www.BuddhasBrew.com

Nisha’s Quick N Ezee Indian Food
Nisha sells her homemade Indian cuisine at farmer’s markets and also does catering. We tried her Parathas, a flatbread stuffed with vegetables, similar to a quesadilla. Nisha’s parathas come in three different flavors: Spinach, Potato, and Pumpkin. I also recommend Nisha’s flavorful Chutneys. Nisha was very friendly, so feel free to ask to make sure which products are vegan. www.NishasIndianFood.com

La Panadería
We came too late to enjoy the vegan-friendly breads offered by La Panadería, but if they taste as good as they look online, I’m sold. www.LaPanaderia.com

There were a few booths we didn’t get a chance to visit which also carry vegan options: Oh Kimchi Austin, Revolucion Coffee + Juice, Humble House Foods, and Good Gluten-Free Foods. I hope you’ll take some time to support local business by visiting the Quarry Farmer’s Market soon!

p.s. I highly recommend taking the drive up to Austin this Saturday for the Texas VegFest, a free festival promoting and celebrating plant-based diets and cruelty-free lifestyles. There will cooking demos, lectures, youth activities, live music, and lots of amazing vegan food.
