About the Toronto Vegetarian Directoryvd2017-frontcover-final-web


The Vegetarian Directory is published every September in time for our Annual Veg Food Fest held at Harbourfront Centre. This event attracts over 50,000 people and continues to grow every year.

Veg Directories are available free in the Toronto Area at over 200 businesses and locations, including restaurants, natural food stores, bakeries, libraries, colleges & universities, and non-profit organizations, as well as through our office and information tables at community events. 50,000 copies are printed each year.

If you would like your very own copy of the current Vegetarian Directory and can’t find one in your neighbourhood, send a self-addressed stamped regular envelope and we will mail one out to you free of charge. You can also download and print a PDF version (see below).
