The winners of the 2017 Toronto Veg Awards were announced over the weekend of the 33rd Veg Food Fest: September 8th to 10th at the Harbourfront Centre. Congratulations to all of the winners!

Please note: The nominations were selected by Toronto Vegetarian Association’s members, and then voted on by the general public. The Toronto Vegetarian Association did not select winners or influence the voting process, and does not endorse particular businesses. We love ALL the great vegetarian and veg-friendly businesses Toronto is so fortunate to have.
