The Vegetable Hunter vegan brewery and cafe will open its third location at Fresh Market at Hershey Towne Square, a mixed-use development with over 40 food and drink vendors at 121 Towne Square Dr. in Hershey, PA. The Vegetable Hunter will inhabit a 350 to 400 sq. ft. space in kiosk 5 in Suite 102 in the building’s food court when they open in July or August.
“We’ve been looking in Hershey for a long time. This is an awesome location. I think we’re really going to be really successful bringing our vegan food in the area where there’s nothing else like it,” the company’s founder Kristin Messner-Baker told What Now Philadelphia.
Messner-Baker says she will be scaling down her menu at this location, serving items that are easier to assemble in a food court-type atmosphere. The Vegetable Hunter will also offer craft beer and kombucha in cans and serve handcrafted cocktails. The café is trying to work a few bar seats into their design and will have additional seating for customers within Fresh Market’s food court seating area.
“Even if people just try one plant-based meal a week, it makes a huge difference in the world. My husband and I are vegan, and we do it for our health and to save the animals and the environment. Substituting for one plant-based meal per week can really make a positive change. This will allow us to offer vegan options in the Hershey area,” Kristin Messner-Baker said.
The Vegetable Hunter opened their first location in Harrisburg in 2014, followed by their Carlisle operation in July 2021. Messner-Baker says The Vegetable Hunter has drawn celebrities and musicians like Carrie Underwood and Kendrick Lamar who perform in the area and seek healthy and energetic food options. So, she expects the new location to be wildly popular since it is so close to Hersheypark and Hersheypark Stadium.
