‘We Are The World’s First Vegan Market’ – New Marketplaces Are Launching Today
By now, the marketplaces that are coming online are already well underway, and they’re bringing together food, fashion, beauty and beauty products and more to create a new generation of vegan shopping experiences.
As part of the Food Revolution in the 21st Century, a new wave of vegan retailers are popping up on the market.
But the next wave will be even more important for those who choose to follow the new trends, says Sarah Smith, owner of Vegan Beauty, a boutique in London, England.
“We want to give the consumer an experience where the beauty and fashion industry can have a real impact, because it has a huge impact on our society,” she says.
“You see this in the new wave in fashion, where there’s a real resurgence in vegan fashion.
So that’s going to be really important in the future.”
Smith has been experimenting with a number of new concepts to help shoppers make informed decisions about what they want to buy.
And for those looking to get in on the action, she offers a free online trial of a range of brands to help them decide what they should buy.
To be sure, there are still many barriers to veganism, and Smith has had to work hard to overcome some.
In her own experience, she has encountered resistance from those who have been raised on a vegan diet.
“There’s a stigma around veganism and that it’s a choice, so if you do decide to change your diet, you’re probably going to have to live with it,” she tells PEOPLE.
But Smith believes that a shift in consumer mindset and consumer demand is already underway.
“I’m definitely not the only one who has experienced that,” she explains.
“It’s a really good thing, because we’ve had a change in the consumer consciousness and awareness of vegans and vegans-only.”
Smith and her team have been working hard to create the most vegan-friendly marketplaces possible, using the latest technology to help customers shop and find the best products.
The new markets are being developed with an eye to providing vegan products that are affordable, sustainable and safe for animals.
“A lot of these are still just in the early stages, but we’re really excited to see how the market develops,” she adds.
For those who want to start their own vegan shopping adventure, the first marketplaces are opening soon in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Denmark, and Sweden.
These marketplaces have already been established, and the first of the new ones will be in Vancouver, British Columbia, next month.
“The biggest thing we want to do is make sure we don’t create a vegan shopping experience for vegans, and we’re not doing that, but at the same time, we’re trying to make sure that it is accessible and accessible to everyone,” says Smith.
“So that means we’re making sure it’s not going to take you a long time to find the products that you want to shop for, or even just have a look through the website and see what you’re interested in.”
For now, Smith says the goal is to provide a vegan-focused shopping experience, which she believes is a really important thing.
“For me personally, it’s about being able to go to the grocery store and see the products I need, and seeing them in person,” she reflects.
“That’s one of the things that’s really important about this, and I think the vegan marketplaces really need to be a place for everyone to go, and feel comfortable shopping there.”

“But there are also many products that people really enjoy, so the whole thing needs to feel comfortable and accessible.”
Smith says the markets are designed to be user-friendly and accessible, and she encourages anyone who has already been to a market or who is interested in starting their own shop to get their foot in the door.
“Just go in and ask them what they’re interested, and make sure they’re willing to talk about it with you and understand what you need and what your options are, so that’s definitely going to help you get the most out of the experience,” she encourages.
The vegan market is already a new phenomenon in the marketplace, but it could become even more so if people start making the conscious decision to stop buying meat, dairy, and eggs, and eat less of the animal products they consume.
“People are really interested in making that decision, and it’s really encouraging,” Smith says.
“It’s not a trend that’s happening by itself.
But it’s important that people start taking steps towards this change.”For more
