Denton Vegan Cooperative adds to area vegan scene
Denton is fast becoming the go-to city for local vegans.
Boasting North Texas’ first and only all vegan storefront, Vegan Freak, and stealing recent headlines about an all-vegan university café at UNT, there’s little hiding the fact that Denton is an up-and-coming star in the DFW vegan scene. Further evidence of that fact was found during a recent visit to the Denton Vegan Cooperative, an organization formed in March of this year serving up fantastic vegan grub to hungry visitors at the Denton Community Market.
Denton Vegan Co-op offers a variety of vegan items such as biscuits & gravy, barbecue seitan sandwiches, and “cheesy” nachos at the market. In addition, their ample selection of baked goods are also available at Denton Jupiter House Coffee locations.
The Denton Vegan Co-op, a worker cooperative following the seven co-operative principles, works with the Peace Kitchen to bring its goods to the Denton community and hopes to bring their talents to a restaurant in the near future. Co-op member Nicki Roseman says the vision for a future restaurant might include things such as “a garden that provides for the restaurant, a juice bar, down home favorite cooked and baked menu items that anyone can enjoy (vegan or not), and so much more.”
Of course that sounds like a glorious future – but until that vision is realized, be sure to check out their delicious offerings at the Denton Community Market, Saturdays 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. through October 29, 2011.
