Say goodbye to the Tart
I’m not sure how much more I can take of my favourite vegan food suppliers disappearing or retreating from public life. If I start losing weight, you will know who to blame. Come on vegan food makers, this FGV needs you.
First Saf closed up for good, then The Mighty Fork stopped trading and now I find out one of the best vegan bakers in the city is set to stop trading in Brixton.
Dumisani and Andy are the people behind The Vegan Tart. Anyone who has strolled around Brixton market will know of the colourful stall overflowing with gorgeous baked goods. Their creations are so well loved they scooped the top prize at the Great Brixton Bake Off, as well as the snatching the top gong in the Best Savoury category.
I reached out to Dumisani to find out what was behind this disappearing act and his response indicates it isn’t all doom and gloom:
We’re supplying 2 shops now, Lazy Rhubarb in Tulse Hill and Lady Dinah’s in Shoreditch (FGV says, “Boo!“) and they’ve been keeping us busy. Lady’s Dinah’s we supply twice a week and they’ve increased their order since starting with us. With that and more personal orders coming in we’ve been stretched and decided that we just don’t have the time to keep doing Brixton market as well. We’ll hopefully do one off markets and events still but just not Brixton regularly. So Saturday will be the last chance at least for a while to buy from us there but The Vegan Tart will still be available at shops and for personal orders. – Dumisani
So it seems Brixton has lost one of its favourite foodie stalls, but cake aficionados can still get their fill of The Vegan Tart by ordering online.
Pop down to Brixton market this Saturday (June 7, 2014) to wish Dumisani and Andy all the best in their future endeavours.
