FARMINGTON — VegMichigan’s seventh annual Fall VegFest is set to take place 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Sept. 10 at Riley Park in downtown Farmington.

“Everyone is invited to attend this family-friendly event, whether you are completely new to plant-based eating or have been eating a plant-rich diet for many years,” a press release states. “We will be hosting some of the best plant-based food that Michigan has to offer in one place. There will be more than 30 featured vendors, including restaurants, food trucks, caterers, specialty items, sustainable shopping and nonprofits.”

Attendees are encouraged to visit the VegMichigan table to learn about the benefits of plant-based eating for health, ethics and the environment.   

New this year is a scheduled presentation of “Healthy Eating” at the Farmington Civic Theatre 11 a.m.-12:15 p.m. by Marc and Kim Ramirez, who will tell their story of how Marc, a former University of Michigan football player, regained his health through dietary changes, followed by a testimony from Oliver Bosnjakovski, who began eating plant-based to support his recovery from a heart attack, according to the release.
