Morristown Vegan Pop Up: Highlight Reel

Updated: Apr 28

I try to make it to every single NJ VegFest event because they are seriously the best. Since they started putting on events, I have missed only 1 (and I'd say I had a good excuse). If you've never heard of these events, you may have been living under a rock, but hey - I'm glad you're here now. Let me give you a little inside look and maybe we'll get to see you at the next event (peep our calendar to find the next event!).

The one that I am talking about, specifically, is the December 17th event at the Laundromat Bar in Morristown. Just recently, the Vegan in NJ crew has started hosting meet ups during these pop ups. You can find all of our meet up info on our events page. We post about it often in our Facebook group, too (and on Instagram, but really... not as much)! If you're not already a member, please join! It's a great crew and we discuss all things vegan and plan meet ups together. There's usually one or more per month, hosted by us.

Before this specific meet up, a few members of the Vegan in NJ community met up for breakfast at Morristown Pancake House, which happens to be literally across the street from the pop up! I know, could life get any better? I'm thinking we will do this before every Morristown pop up! Morristown Pancake House is one of three - Maywood and Rutherford are the other locations. They have vegan items throughout their menu, such as french toast, pancakes and milkshakes! They had a vegan sausage wrap on special with tofu scramble, vegan sausage, vegan cheese (they use Daiya) and avocado, so I got that, along with a fresh squeezed orange juice.

After the long walk across the street to the Laundromat, I arrived early to the pop up, so I could get some pictures. Unfortunately, for me, I spent so much time talking to people that I missed out on the limited run of cashew mozzarella sticks from The Green Moustache! The few people I talked to that had them said they were amazing. Hopefully I'm smarter next time and get in line earlier! I always have one regret at every pop up and this is it at this one! Though, I talked myself out of getting Freakin' Vegan buffalo chick'n mac and cheese and, looking back on that and looking at this picture, I think that was stupid of me. I did, however, take home some of the amazing pecan pie from Gone Pie, so it was not a total failure for me!

In my opinion, this was the biggest of the vegan pop up events held in Morristown (the ones in Asbury Park are definitely much larger) and had the most vendors. It was nice to see different vendors at this one! I do love the vendor regulars, though - Freakin' Vegan, Homemade Betty, Tamerlaine Farm Animal Sanctuary, The Green Moustache, Mo'Pweeze, Creature Comforts Stationary and Vegan Nest, to name a few.

I did a lot of gift buying at this event (normally, it's a lot of selfish buying and eating!) and finished up my stocking stuffers! Here are some products I recommend that I am stuffing some stockings with this Christmas, all thanks to the wonderful vendors at this event:
