This last Vegan Night Market on Saturday, June 1 marked the event’s one-year anniversary.

Last year, we kicked things off at Owl’s Club and on the lawn of the Children’s Museum in downtown Tucson, drawing more than 2,000 people each time. This last Vegan Night Market lured in 4,000 people!

It was our biggest and best Night Market yet — more than 50 local food vendors and vegan makers set up at Rillito Park. We’re already looking forward to the next!

“We are surprised by the continued growth and are already looking at the future to find ways to accommodate the demand,” said Shane Reiser, Head Foodie at Tucson Foodie. “Whether that’s expanding the footprint at the venue or doing the event more often during the year.”
