The best of Bangkok's zero-waste, eco-conscious and ethical community gathers at Ekkamai on July 19

This weekend, Bangkok is getting its first eco-friendly, vegan market that will hopefully be the first of many. Hosted by Root The Future, a bilingual Bangkok-based platform that aims to raise awareness around plant-based food and sustainability, the Root The Future Sustainability and Plant-Based Market is being held this Sunday, July 19 at Union Space in Sukhumvit Soi 61, from noon until 4pm. 

Some of Bangkok's pioneering businesses of sustainable and environmentally-ethical practices will be setting up booth at the event, amongst them our favourite Refill Station, Nourish Cafe and PAWS Bangkok's Adoptable Cat Cafe. Other vendors include up-and-coming vegan food brands, such as Bake The Brownie, Whisked Away (for vegan breads and cheeses), Veggieology (cold-pressed juices, vegan yoghurts and dried foods) and The Courageous Kitchen, which makes beautiful banana leaf-wrapped tempeh. This is just a snippet of what's on offer at the Sustainability and Plant-Based Market. In total, there are almost 20 different vendors who are ready to help you achieve your green living goals.

"The Root The Future market was born from our main Root The Future community," say Root The Future founders Joanna and Max Hellier. "Essentially we just put together a market that we’d want to visit in Bangkok. There are quite a lot of green or eco markets in Bangkok, but none that also take into the account the sustainability of the food we eat, and none that are single-use plastic-free." 

There is no entry fee for the market on Sunday, but do bring your own bags and containers for your purchases.
