Later this month a Black-owned market celebrating vegan-friendly options for classic soul food as well as sustainable living makers will take place near downtown.
Naomi Hendrix Oyegoke is launching Vegan Family Reunion, an inaugural event taking place March 21 at Cherrity Bar. Oyegoke is the owner and head chef of Rooted Vegan Cuisine. The market is aimed at highlighting local, Black-owned businesses while educating the community on alternatives to foodie favorites. Oyegoke said she wants to show San Antonio that healthy, plant-based foods aren’t “intimidating or unsatisfying.”
