Having had many pop up and events in our space at Redwell the Veganfest guys raised the bar. Our existing customers enjoyed the event and it was so refreshing to see so many new people here too.
The vendors were engaging and happy. The rapport and the “vibe” was indescribably good. From a business perspective we had one of the best Sundays of the year so far, but it’s our community we truly care about and this was a great fit.
We are so excited the guys are returning with the event in August!

We, Comptoir V, have been part of the Portobello Vegan Market since it started. It has been such a pleasure to be a part of, JP makes it so easy, the event is always extremely well organised and it helps that he is very passionate which helps with the execution!
He supports all of the vendors whether logistically or through promotion. Would thoroughly recommend any of his events. Thanks JP!

5 star event...! As owners of Tipple On Tap, we provide the bar service every two weeks at this fantastic event.
JP - Portobello Vegan - does a great job of pulling a range of traders and their products together for a chilled out evening of good music, good food and other vegan / cruelty free products. A must visit event for vegans and non vegans. All are welcome. A true community feel.

As a General Manager in B&I Contract Catering, I am always looking for innovative, exciting and interesting ways to keep my business ahead of the game, on trend and in line with what is current in both the food world and everything involved within that.
As a non-vegan myself and with not an extensive knowledge of Veganism apart from knowing how much this lifestyle has increased in popularity over the past years, I wanted to make the most of Veganuary. My aim was to impress my customers, bring something exciting to the table that was relevant to us; this is when I came across JP (Portobello Vegan) and his Plants Based Events Company.
After initially connecting over Instagram, JP and I arranged a consultation whereby he visited our site to get a feel for the environment and enable him to create a proposal for what he could provide and what he believed would work for our space and our clientele. He took note of all of the companies requirements, was amazingly quick on coming back with his proposal. His ideas were completely spot on for what I was looking for and what would work for us at Lexington providing our catering services to Ofcom, I was happy to go with everything he suggested.
In essence, I didn’t have to do anything but arrange the required elements from my end as JP covered everything from organising the wonderful Green Grill team to do a kitchen takeover and the thoughtfully put together list of market traders, The Leaning Tree Organics, K&R London Organic Candles, Sead Foods and Greener Habits Co. all of which were brilliantly professional, knowledgeable with amazing products as well as being present throughout the event, talking to customers and helping to create a great buzz.
JP was organised, collected and even calmed my nerves on the day as he had everything in hand. All in all, he created a wonderful event that was well received by everyone involved and has generated excellent feedback from my customers. A huge success and an amazing team to work with who I have no doubt I will partner with in the future.
Thank you JP and all involved.
