gramel at the northside makers market, northcote

I love going to markets, especially crafty arty markets. My favourite at the moment is Rose St Market, and not just because our buddies at Fair Weather Friends are there.

Another market I'm enjoying of late is North Side Makers Market, an approximately monthly craft market held in Northcote.

One of the things I've always longed for at markets are those delicious sweets, beautifully decorated cupcakes and great looking slices. Since going vegan, I often look at these stalls in hope, and turn away in disappointment.

So I was super excited to find a stall selling vegan baked treats! I don't even know the name of the stall! We were super full from breakfast at Ceres, so I only purchased this gramel (gingerbread camel) for later nomming. It was a little hard, but nice! And more excitingly, I hope to see more vegan bakers at craft markets. :o)

I haven't been to those markets yet! I've been meaning to.
With everyone's fantastic culinary skills, maybe we should start a vegan bake stall together like they have done in Sydney...

Tahn, I've been thinking about that! I think it would be fun (and delicious)...

Yes, you guys should definitely start a Melbourne Vegan Bake Sale!

And I am going to suggest a friend read your blog, Steph, as she's visiting Perth soon and wants to know where she'll be able to find vegan food :)

Mandee, did you have to get approval from EHO's for baking in kitchens before being able to sell?

I have some other Perth recommendations Mandee! Can I email them to you and you pass them on?

My understanding is that you do need approval/permit from EHOs before selling your homemade baking. I might be wrong though!
