Tokyo Vegefood Festa had taken place on October 2017 for 2 days.
Both days were rainy day but still it was good it took place.
It was not a big event but I could enjoy the festival.
It was raining as the typhoon had been approaching.
Still it was not windy or heavy rain.
What I first saw was this station wagon of Kushar.
I think I saw this shop at GREEN FOOD FESTIVAL which is held in Ueno this summer.
Kushar is a local food in Egypt made of macaroni. chickpea, lentil, pasta, rice, etc.
I have not tried it yet but looks good.
This is cool station wagon.
Burittos, so it is a Mexican cuisine.
Special vegetarian paella and burittos were sold here.
Mame means beans and this is the slogan of Tokyo Vegefood Festa this year.
I could see a stuff baking pizza in the oven.
It must have been beans pizza.
I see, yes it’s already October and Autumn is the season of chestnuts.
I remember childhood picking up chestnuts.
Tokyo Vegefood Festa is always held on this avenue in Yoyogi Park.
If you go straight father through Yoyogi Park, you can get to Shibuya station in 20 minutes.
Wooden board says Organic & Fairtrade, Alternative Selection.
I could see dried fruits and spices here.
Staff recommended me sample of Miso Soup.
There were 3 types and the taste was very good.
The stuff told me selected Japanese vegetables and miso of Kyoto are used for this Miso Soup.
It was sold in dried pack for 350 yen (About $3).
Next to the shop of organic vegetables was also organic vegetable shop.
I could sample fresh organic carrot at this shop and it was very sweet.
I bought some carrots here.
Lunch box of Macrobiotic.
This is rare lunch box.
Japanese traditional sweets!
They sell Warabi mochi and rice dumpling.
Warabimochi is made with bracken starch, toasted soybean flour, brown sugar.
It’s one of my favorites!
I like fried noodles called phat thai and fresh juice of Thailand!
Curry is famous, isn’t it.
This shop offers curry of Mumbai.
I could see board of Soup and juice.
For soup and smoothie, selected organic soybeans are used.
Shop focusing organic beans is very rare!
I think food self-sufficiency rate of beans in Japan is 5 to 7% so when it comes to organic, it must be less than 1%.
There was a stage for talk show and music, too.
I felt like the size of Tokyo Vegefood Festa got smaller this year.
There must have been cancellation of the companies because of the typhoon.
But I could see some interesting vegetarian food and shops.
And I could buy organic carrots, too!
Tokyo Vegefood Festa takes place once a year on October so come visit if you have a chance!
