Update: Back to Eden Bakery will be donating, as well! Thank you, guys!
What vegan doesn’t love a vegan bake sale? I would say the gluten-free, but as Portland is getting glutey-free friendlier, there’s usually *something* GF at vegan bake sales now, right? At least a nice attempt!
This is the second year of World Wide Vegan Bakes Sales, which brings about vegan awareness, vegan treats, and community. They’re a new tradition on an international scale – independently run, vegan, happy, and were recognized as the VegNews “Veg Event of the Year” in 2009. There’s a snippet of the article on Bjorked Off!, featuring Evan’s picture of Mint Chocolate Oreo Cake and I do believe, famous danishes in the corner.
When: Try Vegan PDX is hosting the only bake sale listed in Portland during Last Thursday on Alberta on Thursday, April 29th. It will be between 4pm-9pm in front of Green Microgym on 12th and Alberta.
What: Vegan Baked Goods! Sweet, and possibly, savoury.
If you’re interested in donating, please drop off baked goods between 4-4:30pm. If you’re interested in baked goods, please stop by! Sweetpea Baking Co. will be donating, as well!
Why: This bake sale is a fundraiser for our upcoming Inaugural Vegan Iron Chef Competition in June (it quickly sold out! but you can still come to the free after-party at Backspace, and watch it online later!) and our 3rd Annual Try Vegan Week in late August (ending with the 3rd Annual Vegan Prom! Stay tuned for details).
