I love chocolate. Especially Taza Chocolate. It’s just better. That’s why I was so excited that Bartleby’s could be a part of the Taza Block Party on Saturday, May 5th. Taza is a great company, led by great people who work hard to create a delicious and unique chocolate that is both minimally processed and made from ethically sourced cacao. I was honored to be celebrating spring with them.
The annual event is a chance to connect with the friendly vendors and citizens of Somerville. I’ve lived in Somerville for two and a half years, so it felt special to serve food to my fellow residents, and my neighbors. I’ve been driving the big blue and orange Bartleby’s truck all around the city of Boston, and having blast doing that, but it was so nice to be sharing food in the place that I call home.
Thank you to everyone who stopped by and made the day great, and a big thanks to Taza for hosting such an incredible event for the community.

Our first-ever VegFest was an incredible experience. I was so humbled by the amount of people who lined up to try Bartleby’s Seitan Stand. The day went by lickety-split and we completely sold out by the end of the event! Thank you to everyone who braved the long lines with patience and good cheer while we worked as fast as possible to get you fed.
I was happy and proud to be among the many vegan vendors, each passionate and excited to share their wares with the crowds. 2018 was a hugely successful year for VegFest―over two thousand hungry folks came out to dine and show their support. They’re proof that the plant-based lifestyle is growing in popularity. I love it!
You devils gave us some awesome feedback during the day as well! Just a few of the highlights:
