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!

[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!))

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!* & maybe meet whoever's still in the pub later on! I rather like the Walled Garden :) (Brockwell Park - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia>>

    Hi Walkabouters! :) I'm exhausted! Sitting here trying to roughly count, in my head, how many people made it... at least 27... or approximately 30+? I stopped trying to do head counts ages ago!-- It was lovely to meet lots of new people! Of course I'm out of it as I do 2 meet ups in one day!! But it's well worth it! :) All the best! See some of you soon at Drinks! All the best! Jess :)

      Hi Jess, I did make it to the walkabout eventually - around 4 pm. Had a wander around the market - Ms cupcake, Scoff and it was at Trina's that FGV spotted me from across the road while sipping his beer at the Craft beer co. and my walkabout ended into a drinkabout! Badger, Laura, Kip, Melissa & others joined us later. See you at vegan drinks!
