The LC: Australia’s First All Vegan Marketplace

Australia’s First All Vegan Marketplace

LoveChild or lovingly known on the Gold Coast as The LC, is Miami’s new vegan foodie marketplace. Opening in April this year, The LC is Australia’s first multi-vendor foodie marketplace dedicated to vegan businesses. It is not the first bricks and mortar store for Abbey Jones who started Lovechild. Originally her business started as Australia’s first fashion forward cruelty free online boutique. From there she opened a shop not too far from the current location, it had a laneway down the side with boutique vegan market stalls. Most of the stall holders have followed to the new location.

Inside the large white ‘upmarket marketplace’ you will find 5 eateries, plus a gelato stand.

FLOUR OF LIFE BAKERY

6am – 2pm, seven days

Find all of your favourite sweet and savory baked treats with everything from Pies & Pasties to donuts and vanilla slice. All fresh daily from their bakery.

FLORA BY GREENHOUSE

7am – 3pm, seven days

The Greenhouse gals are serving up gourmet breakfast and lunch options from their delicatessen. You will find breakfast boxes, sandwiches, wraps, salads plus other drool worthy warm foods, hello vegan mac n cheese.  

BVK (BURGERS VS KEBABS)

11am – 10pm, seven days

Australia’s first 100% Plant based doner kebab fast food restaurant. If you are missing the real thing, these kebabs are not far off it with seasoned seitan straight off the rotisserie. They also have a selection of cheesy burgers and fries. You will be back again and again.  

I LIKE RAMEN

11am – 10pm, seven days

Australia’s first 100% vegan ramen location. The guys are serving up flavour packed bowls of goodness. Including spicy Korean kimchi, shiitake and soy mushroom. They also have GF noodles available. After something smaller? Grab one of their popular panko mushrooms and meat free po’boys.  

GIGI PIZZERIA

11am – 10pm, seven days

The original Sydney pizzeria is well known for changing their entire delicious menu to be plant-based overnight. Now, the stone roasted pizza by the slice is available in the GC at the LC. If you have ever missed out on the pizza in Newtown because you are celiac, you are in luck. The whole kitchen is a gluten free zone. Do yourself and grab an Italian gelato from their concept store out front when you are done.

This is just the first stage of The LC, soon to be open is the upstairs section which will have more seating, breakfast bar and will be fully licenced. Perfect for functions, and it will also have a boutique space.

The final stage will open up out the back for market stalls once a month on Sundays.
