Lots and lots of awesome food. I'm going to have dreams about the Baja tempeh tacos I ate

It was fairly small, but I think it was the first one in Asheville, so I'm looking forward to it being bigger and having more vendors next year. We didn't stay very long, but I know they had some bands playing and various nutritionists speaking. Some of the local animal santuaries were there and people were sponsoring animals, so that was pretty cool. My husband was excited about ordering food and asking what was vegan? and getting the answer "Everything!"
