As any veggie lover knows, there are certain seasons and times in the year that are better for specific produce. Depending on the season, you can enjoy a range of different fruits and vegetables from local communities and farms. Here in South Florida, people are always on the move. In this case, so is the restaurant! Love and Vegetables is a vegan cafe which pops up in different locations throughout Miami.

Their Mission

Love and Vegetables is a pop-up community cafe which operates on a pay-what-you-can basis. They do this with a goal of feeding everyone in the community, no matter the cost. For those who cannot afford a meal, they open up volunteer opportunities in exchange for the food. They also offer educational workshops and other learning opportunities on subjects like growing, harvesting and preparing vegetarian and vegan dishes. They pride themselves on being members of One World Everybody Eats Foundation, and adhere to their community cafe standards.

The Farm

The Earth ‘N’ Us Farm is a learning space to teach people how to respect and care for the Earth, animals and each other. The Farm intends to increase in productivity, providing fresh greens, fruits, and vegetables for all. They are always welcoming to volunteer, so if you would like to help out, check out the website at http://www.earthnusfarm.org/.

The Food

Love and Vegetables focuses on local and organic produce. As the seasons change, so does their menu and selections. Fresh sprout salads, tomatoes and so much more are available. Vegan mint coconut ice cream? Yum! They are always mixing new recipes to provide the best for the community.

Getting Involved

If you want the luxury of personal vegan cooking done just for you, you can have it! After consulting about your health goals and preferences, the team comes to your house one day a week and prepares plant-based dishes for your dietary needs. ​Each week, they plan a new tailored menu and buy the groceries, using fresh, local, and organic produce as much as possible. They also offer catering services for your dinner parties and special events, and vegan cooking classes and demos. In addition, they are always involved with local events and activities.
