Best Vegan Markets and Festivals In and Around Melbourne

Some of our favourite markets and festivals are the vegan markets held across Melbourne and the wider state of Victoria throughout the year. Vegan markets support locally and ethically made vegan products, vegan wears, vegan eats and vegan produce.

Whether you identify as fully vegan, enjoy a partially vegan lifestyle (for example; you may choose to eat the occasional ‘vegan’ option on the menu and/or you might opt for more ethical and organic beauty and fashion choices) - or you are simply ‘vegan curious’ - these markets are fun to explore for the whole family.

There is always something different to see, and you can browse items that are great for the environment and the animals, as well as discovering products that help to support your overall health and wellbeing.
