Sydney Vegan Market: The cutest stall this weekend – Kind Republic

Sydney Vegan Market: The cutest stall this weekend - Kind Republic

Priscila Chavez from Ecuador, creator of Kind Republic, showcased her bakes at Sydney Vegan Market this weekend.

She makes wonderful slow-cooked vegan cakes and makes dips and spreads from nutritious whole foods… and her family just don’t get it. But she loves it.

The South American woman who recently moved to Australia showcased her skills and stock to the public for the first time at the Sydney Vegan Market.

I headed down there on Sunday and I was so moved by her delicious creations and sweet story that I had to ask her a few more questions and take some photos… and of course buy up lots of her goods.

Priscila, whose friend Jinglu was volunteering to hep her run the stall that day, said when she first turned veggie her family back home did not understand … but she just couldn’t help it.

She quickly because a passionate vegan and found cooking as a therapy. I totally get this as I find it a super meditate experience to get lost in a recipe, smells, tastes… and of course with the vegan element you know it’s better for your health, the plant and the animals.

Sydney Vegan Market, which is on the third Sunday of every month, only started last month in Marrickville, Inner West, but it’s already growing hugely in popularity with Vegan Business Media checking it out and lots of vegan bloggers too.

The awesome Lentil as Anything and Two Six 9 have set up stalls there so you know it’s the real deal.

Coming across Priscila’s stall, which was smaller compared to some others which are more established companies, was the kind of experience one hopes for coming to these things.

Her cooking – evolving from the Republic of Ecuador to the Kind Republic – and her sweet humble nature stood out to me.
