The group has put together a Google map of all the local restaurants that serve vegan and vegetarian meals and they are quick to update it when a new menu item becomes available. They also share local events and meet ups throughout the community. Possibly our favorite part of the group – the puns! Everyone loves a good vegetable pun, they’re simply un-beet-able!
Buying and selling is made easy through Tallahassee Online Yardsale’s Facebook group. With over 90,000 local members there are hundreds of posts a day for you to explore.
