Nashville’s First Plant-Based Taqueria Opens This Fall at the Farmers’ Market

A permanent home in the works for Adriana Ortega and Ronald Cerdas’ Succulent Vegan Tacos

Nashville’s first plant based taqueria, Succulent Vegan Tacos, is setting up shop inside the Nashville Farmers’ Market this fall.

The Mexico City street food-inspired spot from owners Adriana Ortega and Ronald Cerdas was born in 2017 out of a business incubator program, and has since made monthly appearances in the Nashville Farmers’ Market’s Grow Local Kitchen. Ortega and Cerdas came to Nashville over twenty years ago, from Mexico City and Costa Rica, respectively. The couple transitioned to a plant-based diet several years ago, and since honed in on developing a fully vegan menu that maintains true to Mexican recipes and flavors.

Succulent Vegan Tacos offers more than just tacos — there’s an entirely vegan menu also featuring tamales, weekend, brunch, vegan pan dulce (including the duo’s popular conchas), plus weekend brunch and rotating specials from enchiladas and tortas to other antojitos less commonly found in Nashville.

For now, Succulent Vegan Tacos sells heat-and-serve vegan meals online through the Nashville Farmers’ Market What’s Good app, plus in person at East Nashville’s Citizen Market.
