‘Tis the season to get shopping! If you’re like me, you probably haven’t even made a list, let alone started shopping. Well here is some good news. If you’re in the market for Michigan-made gifts that are vegan, then you have come to the right place!
There are 13 places throughout metro Detroit and beyond serving up delicious Thanksgiving dinners and all you have to do is pick it up and enjoy!
Can’t get enough of Detroit’s Eastern Market? Don’t worry, neither can we! We are back at Detroit’s premiere market to explore its veritable cornucopia of vegan eats. And let me tell you, we can’t wait to showcase even more vegan eats.
Thanks in part to its proximity to the educational behemoth, Lansing is home to an amazing diversity of cuisine and culture. Diners will be delighted to not only find greasy American favorites, but also a variety of cuisines from Turkish to Jamaican along with a focus on farm-to-table.
Not much beats the beauty of a Michigan summer or the bounty of a farmers market during said summertime. August is prime time for such a market, as much of Michigan’s succulent produce is at its peak.
Apples, cherries, and raspberries, oh my! Michigan is ripe with an abundance of beautiful fruits and delicious veggies throughout the summer and fall. In fact, picking mounds of plump, juicy berries is a great activity for the whole family to enjoy! If you have ever wondered where to go and when then this Michigan u-pick guide has you covered!
Like many Michiganders, going up north evokes some of my fondest memories. The shimmering blue waters of Grand Traverse Bay, the sweeping green landscapes, and the sweet taste of fresh cherries are unforgettable. The trip provides the opportunity to unplug and truly get away without even leaving the state.
Metro Detroit is full of an overwhelming diversity of food, especially vegan food. In metro Detroit there are three cities that really stand out for their culinary endeavors – Ann Arbor, Dearborn and Detroit. This guide will explore great vegan food in each city as well as a few things to do in between meals. The hardest part is deciding where you’re going to eat first.
The west side of the state is full of enchanting small towns lined with charming shops and fresh produce stands with a lovely feeling in the air to slow down and enjoy the views of Lake Michigan. Over the last few years, it has also become increasingly easier for vegans to not only enjoy West Michigan’s beautiful environment but also, the food.
Millions of people around the world are rising up against police brutality and other acts of violence against people of color. Included are some actions people can take to help bring about racial justice and equity. There are many other things we can do; this list is just a start.
I do not profess to be an expert in issues of racial inequality. I would, however, like to speak to White vegans about the importance of expanding our activism. Haven’t we, as a vegan community, already learned how to see the destructive biases and injustices that lurk beneath beloved cultural institutions?
A special thanks to VegFund, a nonprofit that empowers vegan advocates worldwide through grant funding, for recognizing VegMichigan’s Plant-Based 101 presentations and food tastings as a successful form of outreach!
