Close to a thousand people from across the city recently flocked to the Loftus Park shopping centre for the Vegan Food Fair. The event kicked off with yoga and meditation before Pedro Barbosa entertained the crowd with live music. The Vegan Food Fair, in Pretoria, is an event for vegans, vegetarians and like-minded people said organiser Henry van Schalkwyk.
“We started this fair about two-and-a-half years ago. As a vegan from Pretoria, I felt that we didn’t have a vegan market that caters for us, so I needed to start something different for vegans,” he said. The fair happens every quarter and the next one will be in a few months’ time.
