Vegan Grand Rapids Pop-Ups

The Vegan Grand Rapids Pop-Ups are special events connecting you with vendors and local, sustainable vegan goods that you normally wouldn’t have the chance to shop for all in one place. It’s a temporary retail shop that allows us to connect you with something awesome!

Our next pop-up event is the annual Vegan Grand Rapids Holiday Pop-Up Market.


This year’s Holiday Pop-up Market will be on Saturday, December 14th at the Spoelhof Fieldhouse Lobby at Calvin University from 9am to noon.

Everything sold at the Holiday Pop-Up Market will, of course, be free from all animal products, including meat, dairy, leather, wool, silk, honey, etc… Where else can you shop over 30 vendors and NOT have to ask about what it’s made from?


Check out these photos from our past pop-up markets.
