Today we continue sharing the vast knowledge from folks in the Toronto Vegetarian Association Facebook group. This resourceful group of people always seem to have answers to every and any question, so we’re creating a series of posts to compile and share this wonderful information.

Here is the third in the series: Where to buy vegan shoes in Toronto. (Note: others completed so far include “Where to Find Vegan Coats” and “Host a Vegan Wedding”.
