Vegan Eats at Prahran Market

As even the most dedicated vegans know, it can be tough making time every day to fix yourself a decent work-week lunch. And for all of us, the risk of a lunch-rut remains real!

So we put together this roundup of our favourite grab-and-go vegan eats here at Prahran Market, just to give you a little inspo for when that lunchtime hunger strikes.

Seasonal Salad Combo

Rivergum Grill are famous for their quality salads and have the very best produce located at their doorstep. You’ll find fresh and unique salad combos such as grilled sweetcorn & red capsicum with jalapeno, cherry tomato, black rice, black eye peas, spring onion & basil. Their menu is seasonal, and changes often so keep an eye out for new combos. 

Quench your thirst whilst you’re there with a Pressed ‘Gold’ Juice with carrot, pineapple, orange & passionfruit. Located in Harvest Hall.

Wholesome Goodness

Stir the Pot, caters specifically for dietary requirements and food preferences in their range of grab-and-go and take-home meals made with love. Current vegan options include a delicious Roast Vegetable and Lentil Soup, Pumpkin Dahl, and Butter Bean and Vegetable Stew with a range of salads too. What’s more, Stir the Pot is open on Mondays and Wednesdays when the Market is closed, so just head for the Commercial Road entrance.

Located in Deli Arcade; also enter from Commercial Road.

Hearty Greek

The range of cakes and sweet treats are TDF but did you know that Sweet Greek also sells grab-and-go meals and take home eats – and lots of these are vegan? We’re swooning over everybody’s favourite Cypriot Salad, and Whole Roasted Cauliflower with grated Greek Hard Cheese and Sweet Paprika. But it’s a tough call between those and the roasted vegetable salads and Roasted Sweet Pumpkin with homemade Tahini Yoghurt Sauce. Yummo. Prices vary.

Located in Harvest Hall.

Located in Deli Arcade.

Juice Frenzy

Head to the Sweet and Nut Shop and make yourself up a fresh juice, made to order. There’s an array of the freshest fruit and veg in the fridge that you can choose from, or you can let the team choose for you. We love apple, carrot, beetroot, orange, celery, lemon and ginger – perfect start to the day or a great mid-afternoon pick me up.

Where’s the Cheese?

If you’re like us and like to be prepared for mid-afternoon cravings, then while you’re here make sure you also grab some of the delicious vegan cheeses and dips available from Ripe the Organic Grocer – the range is impressive and tasty! We’re also pretty taken by the vegan crackers at Pete N Rosie’s Deli, particularly the Cauli Crackers – made from real cauliflower. Now that should keep the hunger at bay.
