Come join Northwest VEG and Blue Ocean Events at this year's Veg Village at the Better Living Show, March 26-28 at the Portland Expo Center.
Visit some of the best vegan vendors this side of the Mississippi at this hugely popular, free event dedicated to introducing folks to how to live green and sustainably. Chef Al Chase and I have the honor of putting together this area of the event which showcases the connection between green living, vegan food, and lifestyle choices. The vendor roster includes Book Publishing Co., Northwest VEG, Cafe Yumm!, Masterpeace Hemp, Wild Alice Bars, Buchic Clothing, VitaCrisp, Adventist Hospital, and more. Cafe Mam, Numi Tea and Theo Chocolates are just a few of the main floor attractions in the Lifestyle section! Chef Al and Chef Chat Mingkwan will be doing demos as well as Northwest VEG's Wendy Gabbe Day as she cooks it up alongside her father, cookbook author and instructor David Gabbe. Invite your friends and associates to this exceptional event. Great speakers are part of the lineup, and the Green Children (www.thegreenchildren.com) will be performing throughout the weekend.
