I've always wanted to visit Philadelphia - there are so many places to I want to go in and around the City of Brotherly Love, and my bucket list includes the fancy and highly rated restaurant Vedge, the gorgeous Laurel Hill Cemetery (oh, to explore the old gravestones there would be heaven), Grindcore House coffee shop (metal music and vegan goodies?? YES PLEASE), the Mütter Museum (housing a collection of medical oddities, anatomical and pathological specimens, wax models, and antique medical equipment), Charlie Was a Sinner bar (slinging vegan drinks and eats), Vegan Treats (a few hours outside the city, but I'm sure their treats are well worth the drive!), and, now, V Marks the Shop, a new vegan convenience store that wants to join the burgeoning vegan scene in Philly.
There is currently a Kickstarter going for V Marks the Shop, and you can help make history by donating towards the opening of this all-vegan grocery store, which would be the first of its kind in Philadelphia! V Marks the Shop will offer a place to purchase staple vegan products, but also unique local, international, and hard-to-find vegan items as well. Not only that, but it will also serve as a meeting/event space for fabulous happenings, including pop-ups, cooking demos, book signings and much more depending on the space they secure. And it won't just be a brick-and-mortar destination, either, as they will also have an online shop where all their products can be ordered, as well as offering recipes, forums, etc.
The couple behind V Marks the Spot is none other than The Food Duo, Carlo and Carmella, who are very active and well-known in the vegan community for their blog, their Vegan Food Chat on Twitter, and their warm, generous, and compassionate personalities! You can watch their video on V Marks the Spot below:
For your support, there are some awesome perks included in V Marks the Spot's Kickstarter, including their own cookbook, the opportunity the name a recipe in the cookbook, totes, tees, invites to their grand opening, and more! Please help support Philly’s first all-vegan convenience store being built on compassion for the entire global community!
