Cheesesteak jokes aside, Philly is one of the best cities in the country to be vegan. There are so many here that former Mayor Michael Nutter named Nov. 1st Philly Vegan Day. But Philly’s extensive food festival scene has never reflected that.
Enter S.E.E.D., the Sustainable Everyday Edibles and Drinkables Festival. Vendors from across the area set up booths at Sugarhouse Casino to show off all the options Philadelphia vegans had for food, drink, and clothing. And, if you can’t stomach vittles without tipples, rest assured it’s never a Philly food festival without at least 40 percent of booths devoted to beer with a little help from their friends at Home Brewed Events with musical jazz stylings from a bygone 1920’s era with Evan Cory Levine & His Singular Band.
Overall, it was a good plan and we can’t wait to see how it improves for next year! Hint: More food is always a good thing!
