On Saturday we held our Sydney Vegan Bake Sale as part of the second Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale!
Our charity this month is Edgar's Mission and sadly during the week we heard the news that sanctuary's first rescue animal, Edgar Alan Pig, had passed away. Edgar had been at the mission for 7 years and had toured Australia educating people about the life of pigs in Australia. Our bake sale was in Edgar's honour and our thoughts are with Pam and the staff at Edgar's Mission.
We had lots of baked goods for sale and it was a fairly busy day at the markets, despite it being a long weekend. We sold out by 1 pm (apologies to anyone that missed out) and we raised $940!
Gluten free cupcakes
Gf Choc Peanut Butter Cupcakes
Twilight Bar Biscuits (Vegan Mars Bar Biscuits)
We'll be back in June, check back for updates next month!

We're back for this year's Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale! Last year over 100 bake sales took place and over U$25,000 was raised.
We're really excited to be involved again and it's our first bake sale for 2010! We will be at the Newtown Square Markets on Saturday April 24 from 8am until 2pm, unless we sell out early. The markets are now run by the council and each stall has to apply for a permit in advance so we shouldn't have any issues with not being allowed to set up this year. Keep an eye out for our new poster:
This month our proceeds will be donated to Edgar's Mission, a not-for-profit sanctuary for abused and neglected farm animals. Belinda, one of our awesome bakers, recently visited the sanctuary and took some photos of the beautiful animals that live there.
We're looking forward to seeing all of our regular customers again and hopefully meeting some more vegans too! We'll have the usual baked goodies like cupcakes, cookies and muffins plus gluten free options, but if you have any requests, don't hesitate to contact us via email - sydneyveganbakesale at gmail dot com or via twitter.
- We're a group of Sydney vegans who hold bake sales to raise money for animal-related charities. We started by participating in the first Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale and then we realised what a great opportunity it is and have decided to continue our bake sales on a regular basis. Our stall is located at the Newtown Square Markets on King St Newtown, across the road from the train station, outside the Community Centre.
