JL Fields has been on a mission to build the Colorado Springs' vegan community since she arrived here in 2012. Her message is catching on. Witness the popularity of her sold-out vegan beer-pairing dinner at Phantom Canyon Brewing Co. in January and her frequent Vegan Pop-Up Markets, which bring vendors selling vegan groceries, food, clothing, accessories, books and more under one roof.

"We launched the Vegan Pop-Up Market concept in 2013 with five vendors," she said in a statement. "Five years later, we have more than 20 for the upcoming Summer Vegan Pop-Up Market."

Fields stays busy promoting a 100 percent plant-based lifestyle. She's the founder and culinary director of the Colorado Springs Vegan Cooking Academy and the author of four vegan lifestyle and cookbooks. She also writes a monthly vegan dining review for The Gazette.

At the June market, she'll have a booth with information about her academy alongside the other vendors (see the list below). Two food trucks, Potato Potato and Vegan Van, will be parked outside.

Details: noon to 3 p.m. June 9, at Colorado Common Hard Cider, 4655 Town Center Town Center Drive. Admission is free. Visit tinyurl.com/ycch86xc.

Gather your corn-based shopping bags and get ready to fill them with goodies from the following market vendors: Colorado Common Hard Cider, Santana's Vegan Grill, Vejje (plant-based burgers), the Burrowing Owl, Azteca Gourmet Foods, Moxie, Ola Juice Bar, Rustic Donut, Nourish Organic Juice, Kite Vegan Ice Cream, Nooch Vegan Market, the Compassionate Closet, Simple Body, CocoPrana (coconut-based foods), Bonbon Bombardier, High Vibration Products (natural, vegan teeth whitening), An Empowered Kind(ness)/Pinned Reality (T-shirts and art), Colorado Springs Vegan Cooking Academy, Love is Vegan (bumper stickers, mason jar drinking cups, tea towels), Luvin Arms Animal Sanctuary and VegFest Colorado.
