The Vegan Tart *BRIXTON BAKE OFF-BEST In Show & BEST Savoury 2013!!*
From Chocolate Tarts, to Lime & Thyme, from Homity Pies to Cookies or Scones, enjoy something yummy indeed inspired by the 1950's, with a dash of Twin Peaks indeed!

Dumisani & Andy, the 'tarts' :)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Saba's Ethiopian Stall
Enjoy the great vegan option*, of injera (pancake made with self raising flower) or rice, with lentils, mixed veg & salad!
((*non-vegan option cooked totally separately))

A fine example of what to expect....... :)

(Photo I took of my plate in October 2012)

 

 

 

 

 

Ms Cupcake
With plenty of naughty cupcakes to choose from, (including lots of chocolate ganaches, with mint, coffee, hazelnut, strawberry & other flavours indeed), plus a fridge full of Vegan Ice Cream, Rice Puddings, plus savoury pastries & new Vegan sandwiches, there's lots to tempt you at Ms Cupcakes Brixton base!

Other Brixton Vegan delights....* checked/recommended-there may well be more to discover...but this is a pretty extensive list! :) *

>See Trina's Delicacies, (Vegetarian & Vegan), for her Vegan brownies & cupcakes; she often has free samples to try too...well worth a try :) . I've had 2 cupcakes; nice delicate, fluffy, yum! ((Located near Saba's/Vegan Tart))

Trina's Delicacies

>Check out Taza falafal *to the right, by the Recreation Centre Staircase*; yummy, fresh, well worth getting the large one!

>The Oracle's Organic Juice Bar; lovely salads & fresh juices in Brixton Village, 6th Avenue; see Sean's article here..... :)

You can crush us | fatgayvegan

>Franca Manca; ((4, Market Row, covered market)) I've heard people rate the vegan option here- I've heard there's one vegan pizza option, then you can add toppings; little bit pricey *about £1.50 per extra topping* but a friend said she just had the plain Margareita *minus cheese indeed* with just Artichokes added, that works out a good deal & sounds nice indeed!

Franco Manca - Brixton

>L'Express; (Market Row; a short walk from Ms Cupcake!) the 'greasy spoon' Express Cafe, that is 'taken over' on certain evenings, becoming a French Vegetarian & Vegan Restaurant.... nice people, yummy vegan options, well worth a look!

L'Express Cafe - London, United Kingdom - Vegetarian & Vegan ...

And Local shopping;

Holland & Barratt (Brixton Road)

Brixton Wholefoods (Atlantic Road)

Seating options >>
there is some seating that may be available in the market, there is also a seating area upstairs outside the Recreation Centre, to the left; at Ms Cupcake, there is some out door seating available; also option of drinks, at the next door cafe!

After enjoying some Vegan delights, then.....

The Dog Star!
....it's off to pub around 2.30 or 3ish (it may be earlier if the weather is a bit much! Haha!!) for drinks & good conversation!! :)

OR *weather permitting!*

Brockwell Park

At 3ish, if you fancy a trip to Brockwell Park, I'll head off with a little group for a couple of hours *say till about 5ish; could vary!* & meet whoever's still in the pub later on! I rather like the Walled Garden :)

(Brockwell Park - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia>> At the end of Coldharbor Lane, with the main part of Brixton Road to your right, turn left passing by the Ritzy Cinema, & go up the main road, which is where Brixton Road becomes Effra Road; there are buses but it's not a long walk, roughly 10/15 minutes. Keep your eyes peeled at the road names to your left; when you see a street called Brixton Water Lane, turn left & after a short walk, the park entrance is on your right)

Intrepid Fox; Post Walkabout metal/rock back North of the River!

I'll be leaving Brixton by bus around 5.30pm; we'll meet people at 7pm under the Freddy Mercury Statue, Dominion Theatre, Tottenham Court Road & wonder off to Govinda's & Maoz in anyone's hungry indeed, then head to Intrepid Fox for 9-late!

Here's the page >> http://www.meetup.com/londonvegan/events/135211492/ :)

 

So, latecomers, get yourselves down Brixton Station Road; if you don't see a group of vegans queuing by Saba or loitering at The Vegan Tart stand---

1) Look around the market for a seated area or generally explore the area! You are very likely to bump into someone you know!

2) Pop up those stairs to the Recreation Centre & look to your left

3) Pop by Ms Cupcake...

4) Gone 3pm? Just get down to The Dog Star!! OR head up to Brockwell Park! :)

5) Later? If you can't make Brixton & like Metal/Rock, meet us at 7pm at Tottenham Court Road, Under Freddy.... :) Vegans Invade Intrepid Fox!! :)

So, after the success of past trips, I look forward to more trips!!
All the best, Bye for now, Jess :)

    Hi Walkabouters! Little note to say The Vegan Tart will be at The Effra Social this Sunday; link here >> http://www.skiddle.com/whats-on/London/Effra-Social/Brixton-craft-fair--creative-workshops-September-29th/11970108/ :) Not sure I'll make it, as I'll be getting a bit tipsy perhaps over at the new Vegan Brewery... but this event goes on till 6pm, so we'll, but if not I'll be at next Month's Walkabout indeed! & by next month, I mean November's! See some of you at Veg Fest soon; I'll be at TRina's Delicacies from 1-5pm :) All the best, Jess

      There's been a change of plans so I will be there for the walkabout after all, and may even be bringing my father (which will be entertaining!!). :) See you tomorrow! :)

    • Jessica Stella F.

      Great! And I'm bringing a wee brolly! There may be showers! See you, and your dad :) , tomorrow! Jess :)

    Hello Walkabouters!
    Well, hints of Autumn have started to appear.....but there's still a bit of Summer out there, somewhere! But, a quick glance at BB Weather shows we're in for 'sunshine & showers' this Saturday, so, maybe bring a brolly! And so, after several lovely trips to Brockwell Park, this time it might be straight to the Dog Star! We'll see how things are at about 3pm! Anyway, I'll be away at 5.30ish for Intrepid Fox! :) Also, here's details of Stockwell Festival, in case anyone fancies nipping up there to visit my friends, The Vegan Tart! >> http://www.thestockwellfestival.co.uk/ Its at Larkhall Park, which is actually just a half hour walk away from Brixton or a 20 minute bus journey from Lambeth Town Hall (across from Ritzy Cinema & end of Coldharbour Lane, go to Acre Lane, Bus Stop V & get the P5 Bus!) Which gives me an idea for a bit of a Walkabout extension to the Festival, weather permitting!! :) All the best, Jess :)

      *What the hell is 'BB' weather? Not the 'tense/egotistical atmosphere' of the Celebrity Big Brother house??? Argh!! I meant 'BBC Weather!! :)

    ???? Just been looking at a version of this page that's not been edited/announced etc...don't know what the feck's going on....right....not going to worry..... anyway...I often hear the reputation of Walkabout is spreading so people will find us! :) Good Night!

    Testing....I've just been updating/editing details for the 'repeating' of the Walkabout's details.... & it appears to have wiped out the 11 RSVP's! Do re-RSVP or just turn up, no worries! Some glitch occurred or maybe, whilst editing, I inadvertantly wiped/re posted the same fecking event?? Noo idea! Hope this posts!! :)

    FYI that we won't be at this market as we'll be at the Stockwell Festival. If you want more details for this let me know.
