One of the most important goals for the festival is to showcase delicious vegan food. To that end, we’re excited to announce some of the food vendors that we’ll have at the festival.

First up is Asase Yaa. Asase Yaa is a local catering and festival food provider run by the amazing chef Petrina Walker. Petrina will be cooking up a variety of delicious vegan food with influences from Africa to Asia. Her food was a big hit at last year’s festival, and she sold out before the end of the festival, so get yours early this year! Asase Yaa catered the Twin Cities Veg Fest Donor Preview event in August and her food was spectacular.

We are also excited to have Kitty Corner Cafe as a vendor this year. Kitty Corner Cafe is a relatively new cafe that opened on Washington Ave just east of Cedar earlier in 2013. Owner Zuhal Sari is committed to providing great vegan options, and her shop includes vegan waffles and sandwiches. Kitty Corner will be selling Turkish style vegan waffles served with fruit, nuts, and powdered sugar. We’ve tried them at the shop and they’re fantastic!

Stay tuned for more announcements because we have three more great food vendors to tell you about! Here’s a few hints … Think spring rolls, misir wot, and delicious vegan cookies, muffins, and cupcakes.
