“Although we really appreciate the efforts of folks to include vegetarian or vegan foods into Lexington’s popular food weeks, it was never the focus,” says Sarabeth Brownrobie, founder of Lexington Vegan Week. “We knew that local restaurants have always had creative vegan dishes on their menus, even if people didn’t think of them that way. We wanted to celebrate that and help diners discover a whole new way of eating.”
