Upbeet + Rooted has seriously upped the vegan game in Chicago! As a plant-based brand, we love aligning with other plant-based or mission-driven organizations. Kim and Diane are so passionate about what they do, and have curated the best vegan brands. Working with them and being part of Upbeet + Rooted has been a dream!
Regina Trillo, Founder Nemi Holisticks
Being part of Upbeet & Rooted was a game changer for Nemi. I’m a super new brand and Upbeet brought the exposure I was looking for to test my product, get feedback and connect with my target market. The vibe was energizing, I met other amazing brands and I loved being part of the Upbeet community. Can’t wait for them to have another one in Chicago and join!

"The energy at the Upbeet and Rooted Market is vibrant. Not only did I feel incredibly welcomed by the hosts Kim and Diane, but my fellow vendors as well. There are friendly faces and talent at every booth, sharing their vision of what a cruelty future looks like."
