Fort Lauderdale’s First All-Vegan Food Market And Café Opens Downtown

For vegans, shopping at traditional grocery stores can be time consuming and difficult, but Fort Lauderdale vegans won’t have to worry about those hassles any longer.

Fort Lauderdale’s first all-vegan market, created by Florida Atlantic University professor Steven Smith, is an exclusively plant-based gourmet grocery store. It also features a dine-in/take-out café.

Smith has been a committed vegan for 20 years, and wanted to create a one-stop shop for vegans, but it’s also designed to appeal to vegetarians and non-vegans as well. 

The grocery store includes multiple products from raw vegan foods and kid-friendly Pinkberry vegan frozen yogurt, to vegan meat and cheese alternatives.

The food market also highlights local vendors and national and international purveyors. The Inika Café, located in Vegan Fine Foods, serves acai bowls, wraps, juices, desserts and more.

Vegan Fine Foods will hold its grand opening celebration festivities from April 20 to 22, starting with a carrot ribbon-cutting ceremony at 2:30 p.m. on April 20. Prizes, product promotions and food samplings will also be included during the grand opening.
