Welcome to The Brixton Vegan Walkabout!!

Come rain, or come shine, join us every 1st Saturday of the Month to explore the many Vegan delights, South of the River!

Buses >> 45, 59, 109, 118, 133, 159, 250, 333

The usual timings of the day; *with Seasonal variations!* [masked]pm; We gather outside Brixton Tube Station

[masked]pm*; walk to Brixton Station Road for Vegan Tart, Saba's, Trina's, Taza Falafal, etc! ((Some of us may wonder off to the Jamaican place, but we'll come back to the market where there's some seating near Saba's stall, or plenty of standing room!! :) ))

About 2-3pm*; wondering along to Ms Cupcake, via anywhere people fancy enroute!
((We generally go down to the end of the market, past the Recreation Centre Stairs, turn right, past more stalls until we reach the main road, turning left; that's Atlantic Road, which curves round to join Coldharbour Lane, where we see the Dog Star to our right. Our route may also take in the indoors markets of ''Brixton Village,'' (side entrance just before exiting the outdoor market) where The Oracle Organic Juice Bar is at 6th Avenue, and ''Market Row,'' which leads us to Ms Cupcake!))

3pm onwards*  ;
Raining/cold? Off to The Dog Star {{who can do Vegan pizza with V Bites Cheezly Mozzarella & V Bites Deli Toppings including Vegan Chorizo! :) }}
Sun shining? Brockwell Park till late, & choice of pubs later, i.e. back to Coldharbor Lane for Dog Star/Prince Albert/Market House OR up to Tulse Hill for the lovely Railway Tavern!

Other recommended pub *cheers Sarah Jane :) * ; the lovely retro/kitsch Effra Social, only a short 10 minute walk up Effra Road! Or next door, there's The Hootenany!



*Approximate times

Market Stars!


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!

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))

>Trina's Delicacies, (Vegetarian & Vegan), delicate fluffy yummy Vegan brownies & cupcakes; she often has free samples to try too...well worth a try :) . ((Located near Saba's/Vegan Tart)) Web link> Trina's Delicacies


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

Scoff! New to Brixton Station Road is the lovely Jane & her decadent truffle & fudge delights! I think pictures say a 1000 words.... *photos care of Sean's review here >> http://fatgayvegan.com/2014/02/22/scoff-home-delivery/ *www.scoffsweets.co.uk * :) >> You'll find her down the far end, after the Recreation Centre..... :)

Dark chocolate & Amaretto truffles

And... (what, there's more? Oh yes...) .... There's another new stall nearby Scoff, by a dairy free lady who sells, mostly Vegan, cheap boiled sweets & iced coconut; check her out for all your boiled sweet & icing needs! 


Brixton Village! >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

>The Oracle's Organic Juice Bar; (Vegan) lovely salads & fresh juices in Brixton Village, 6th Avenue; see Sean's article here..... :) >> You can crush us | fatgayvegan

Market Row/Coldharbour Lane! >>>>>>>>>>>>> Grande Doubles; (Under the bridge, Coldharbor Lane, off Atlantic Road, diagonally opposite The Dog Star) Lovely little place with fruit & veg out front, inside, a small row of seats; they do a lovely simple dish of slightly spicy chickpeas with a lovely tamarind sauce in two pieces of bread, as below; it's lovely and can be as spicy as you like, depending on how much tamarind sauce you have!!  :)  >>



>Franca Manca; Sourdough pizza can be veganized (basically, minus the cheese & choose whatever toppings you like) Franco Manca - Brixton

>L'Express; Pop up Vegetarian/Vegan French restaurant; check out the link below for menu/opening times :)

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

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!

http://www.mscupcake.co.uk



And Local shopping;

Holland & Barratt (Brixton Road)

Brixton Wholefoods (Atlantic Road)


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

The Dog Star

A spacious cosy place, we regularly take over the back space by the Dog picture! They serve several Vegan friendly Beers & cider; and now they can do Vegan Pizza, with V Bites Cheezly & Deli toppings, including Vegan chorizo, made by their Sicillian chef, they've gone down a treat in recent months! :)

Other local pubs we've been to are minutes/seconds away from The Dog Star & Ms Cupcake; The Market House and The Prince Albert. 

OR *weather permitting!*

Brockwell Park *In case of chilly or rainy weather, nearby pubs to Brockwell are Effra Social & Hootenanny, on Effra Road; Brixton Water Lane to the right of Hootenanny leads directly to the park! :) *

At 3ish, if you fancy a trip to Brockwell Park, I'll head off with a little group for a few hours, & maybe meet whoever's still in the pub later on! I rather like the Walled Garden :) (Brockwell Park - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia>> 

And later....if you fancy a trip North of the River, there's Vegans Invade Soho; the regular Post Walkabout night out!

We'll meet people at 7pm(ish) under the Freddy Mercury Statue (Dominion Theatre, Tottenham Court Road) & go from there! Or meet us in The Coach & Horses around 8.30 or later, we may be in Tibits around 9/9.30 till late! We'll see! :)

So, after the success of a year+ of past trips, I look forward to more trips!!


All the best, Bye for now, Jess :)

    Hi guys! I'll be there with the Scoff stall again this month. I'll have lots of lovely vegan fudge and chocolate truffles. (Not sure where I'll be exactly, but probably down the Pope's Road end again as bakers and flea market stall holders get priority down the main road end.) Hope to see you all there.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
