Young Vegans pie shop London closing
2020 has been an indisputably tough year for everyone and nobody knows this better than independent vegan businesses.
And the latest news to back this up?
News broke yesterday of legendary London food hot spot Young Vegans Pie Shop closing in Camden.
Cue a flood of tears.
Young Vegans Pie Shop was the pride of its owners, Carla and Marco.
For anyone who has had the pleasure of meeting these enterprising vegans, Carla and Marco are not just a force of nature when it comes to business but also two of the nicest people on the London vegan scene.
Young Vegans pies were always the star attraction when they appeared at Hackney Downs Vegan Market and their Camden Pie Shop was a magnet for plant-based eaters from all over the planet.
I reached out to Carla to ask for her to clarify exactly why her Pie Shop in Camden Market is closing and she said:
Our Pie Shop in Camden Market was great as it allowed us to learn a lot and grow our brand. But with uncertainty around COVID it makes sense for us to pivot and focus on expanding our online store and to make Young Vegans a household food brand.
As sad as we are for the Young Vegans Pie Shop to disappear, we can celebrate the fact that we can still buy their delicious pies via their online store.
