Welcome to my blogpost and impressions about VEGAN PLANET fair in Vienna 😀 It´s a 3-day vegan lifestyle fair featuring many companies, brands and vegan food and products. It was held together with YOGA PLANET, the yoga fair 😀 It’s a great place to try some new things and meet other veggies and like minded people 😉 It´s also all about eating philosophy, animal rights, animal-cruelty free, health and plant-based lifestyle and gorgeous brands 😀 There were also live cooking and presentations taking place 😀
It had been my first time visiting this fair and I enjoyed it more than I could ever explain! Sadly, I wasn’t able to visit on Friday but I was there on Saturday and Sunday 😀 I also worked there as a volunteer/helping hand on both days and therefore I got free entry and loads of goodies and stuff for free in my goodie bag 😀 a win-win situation! I had the chance to enjoy as much as possible and experience a lot to write about 😀 I met very amazing people there and it was so much fun! I plan to visit and work at the fair again next year bc it has been an honor to me 😀
Let me show you some of my impressions and experiences 😀 on Saturday, I worked at the cloakroom from 11am to 2:30pm (before I handed out flyers in the streets ) and on Sunday as ticket taker from 1pm to 3pm 😀 it was quite stressful at moments but actually I enjoyed every second 😀 I’d love to do these things more often!!! Simply to connect and meet up with like-minded ones. The fair really made my weekend unique and positive 🙂
Luckily, I had the chance to try and eat a lot so that I can tell you quite a lot about it 😀
On Saturday, I had a vegan burger from I LOVE VEGGIE BURGER 😀 I was really curious to try it again for I also had on me at VEGANMANIA in summer 🙂 again, I liked it a lot ❤ the greatest thing about it was that I had the chance to create my own burger 😀 by simply choosing bun, patty, sauce, toppings and optional side (I didn’t choose a side dish this time).
I also tried a vegan wrap from FREIRAUM DELI 😀 it was a rice paper wrap filled with veggies 😀 super fresh and delicious 😀 but so tiny 😉 I´d love to have more 😉
Of course, I also visited VEGANISTA at the fair – on both days! Since it’s my favorite ice cream shop I visit their stores as well as their booth at festivals and fairs a lot 😀 it’s the best vegan ice cream and always a huge inspiration to me to create my own (N)IceCream versions 😀 on Saturday, I chose Black Forrest and on Sunday : Taste of Christmas & Gingerbread 😀 oh, how I love all their wonderful tastes 😀 they offer a lot extraordinary flavors and all of them are heavenly ❤ If you ever visit Vienna – their store is must! No matter if you´re vegan or not! 😉
But ice cream wasn´t my only sweet treat at the fair 😉 I tried loads of cookies, cake and other sweet things 😉 Too many things for to try out ! It all turned into a little binge 😉 little bit but definitely 😉
On Sunday, I nourished myself with a vegan organic kebab from MAKAM 🙂 and vegan baklava. 😀 really tasty indeed 😉 since my first vegan kebab in September I’m in the mood to try out more of these dishes 😀 and I was super curious about the baklava bc I’ve never eaten it ever before 😉 and now I know: it’s too sweet for me;) but it was worth a try!
For dinner, before leaving the fair, I ordered pita bread filled w/ hummus, seasonal veggies, cabbage and black olives 🙂 at RITA BRINGT‘S booth:) a very tiny stall at the fair with wonderful food 🙂 absolutely gorgeous and lovely! And it tasted all fresh and great!
At the booth of DANCING SHIVA SUPERFOODS I tried cake, cookies, …, and an homemade hemp blossom iced tea 🙂 super amazing! Best iced tea ever 😀 and sooo pretty ! 😉
