Walt Disney World’s 17th annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is getting a little fresher and greener this year by debuting its first ever vegan marketplace.

Epcot, known for celebrating different cultures and countries from all over the world, is embracing all sorts of food and beverages at their festival and this time the park is implementing veganism into its Marketplace.

Terra Marketplace will offer vegetable-based culinary dishes with help from Gardein, a company that offers plant-based foods that taste similar to meat. Dishes such as, chili Colorado with chips and cashew cheese with Gardein beefless tips and chocolate cake with passion fruit sorbet and coconut foam will be provided.

Organic and sustainable wines created by Paul Dolan will also be available, including a sauvignon blanc and pinot noir. Silk, known for its soymilk products, will also offer a berry smoothie at Terra.

It’s surprising it would take so long for Epcot to have a vegan booth, as the park is popular for growing its own fruits and veggies, along with supporting the environment. Visitors can even see their gardening techniques on the Living with the Land boat ride.

Nearly 30 international food and beverage Marketplaces will be set up throughout the park. Not only can you taste delicious foods from Argentina, Italy, South Korea and Belgium, but you can explore and have an international adventure all in one day.

Jump here to see what food and drinks will be offered at Epcot’s festival. It begins on Sept. 28 and will end on Nov. 12 at Epcot, located in Orlando, Fla.
