Seed Food & Wine Week Featured in the New York Times!
It's been a seriously exciting year for Seed Food & Wine Week. We celebrated our FIFTH year in Miami, expanded the festival to Los Angeles in partnership with Eat Drink Vegan, and were named one of the nation's top three wine festivals by USA Today.
And just when we thought 2018 couldn't get any better, we earned a spot in the New York Times!
Honestly, we couldn't be more honored! The storied newspaper ran a piece titled Vegan or Vegetarian? You Have More Travel and Dining Options Than Ever.
In it, writer Nora Walsh notes that the percentage of vegans in the U.S. has risen from one percent to six percent in the last three years -- and that Pinterest has seen an almost 200-percent spike in searches for "vegan food travel guides" since 2017.
She mentioned our friends at vShops Food Hall, the world's first-and-only all-vegan food hall, in Coconut Grove (Miami) -- and talked about the impact of Seed. She spoke to chef Todd Erickson, co-owner of GLAM Vegan and Seed's Culinary Director.
Todd said: "Festivals are a great way for people to learn more about vegan values, experience the lifestyle, sample products and eat delicious food. There's something for everyone at every price point, from burger battles to private chef dinners. Vegan food is not just kale and tofu anymore."
Amen to that! Seed is a foodie fest that appeals to EVERYONE with amazing events, mouthwatering cuisine, fine wines/craft beer/cocktails, and sustainable brands, influencers, and celebrities -- all gathered to celebrate conscious living.
