VegFest 2011: Top five food products

We know, you've probably seen the Amazing Grater on television, but if you haven't already considered it as an addition to your vegetarian/vegan kitchen, you might want to. Vegan cheese isn't exactly easy to grate, but this thing makes it simple as can be.

If you're considering a CSA share, you could do a lot worse than Grant Family Farms; you can get food shares of all kinds (veggie, fruit, mushrooms, eggs, bread, flowers, cheese and even meat, summer or winter) for a single person or a whole family. Fresh and delicious!

Qrunch was doing a brisk business offering samples of the quinoa burgers, which were snapped up quickly by a line of waiting eaters; the gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, corn-free, wheat-free, egg-free and nut-free patties are made from organic grains and vegetables; you can find them at Tony's markets and Marczyk Fine Foods.

We saved the best for last -- and we know what you're thinking: "Raw? Vegan? Gluten-free? Ew." You are so, so wrong. Hail Merry makes nuts, granola, macaroons and amazing tarts, all raw, vegan and gluten-free -- and every last product is delicious. The booth was serving up macaroons at VegFest and could barely keep up with demand. If they'd brought the lemon tarts to share, no doubt there would have been a stampede or a riot. Just try one Hail Merry product and we bet you'll be going back for more. (You can get them at Natural Grocers and Whole Foods locations.)
