100% Vegan Night Market Returns to the MASS District, September 11, 2021


Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – August 16, 2021 – On the heels of a successful inaugural edition, Veg Night Out, South Florida’s first-ever 100% vegan outdoor night market, will return on Saturday, September 11 featuring the best of the region’s plant-based offerings. Created in partnership by Sean Russell, founder of SoFlo Vegans, and Melissa Guzman, owner of The Caribe Vegan, Veg Night Out made an outstanding debut in July, attracting hundreds of attendees and 30 local vendors.

“We’re thrilled and incredibly grateful for the community’s support at our first-ever Veg Night Out,” says Sean Russell, co-founder of Veg Night Out. “We reached nearly 500,000 people to raise awareness, support local businesses, and continue establishing South Florida as a hotspot for veganism, and we’re excited to keep the momentum going for our next edition.”

The free, family-friendly event will once again take over the MASS District on September 11 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. to showcase the power of Fort Lauderdale’s vegan community. Attendees will enjoy an expanded line-up of plant-based vendors including vegan eats and treats, craft goods, music, and entertainment. A complete list of vendors will be announced in the coming weeks.

Veg Night Out is an optimal opportunity for businesses interested in reaching current and future vegans in South Florida and to be featured on SoFlo Vegans, one of the fastest-growing multi-channel platforms for the vegan community.

Supporting sponsors included Hodo Foods, Sayblee, Anny’s Bread Factory, SEED Food and Wine, and Pure Honey Magazine.
