We are sisters, Becky Jones and Niki Forster. We've been vegan since early childhood and celebrate our 34th 'veganniversary' this year! Having been vegan since the 80s, we get very excited about how veganism has grown in recent years and love being part of the movement.
POTATO TOMATO WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
Potato Tomato was started by Niki when she opened a vegan food hut in the Whitstable Harbour Market in 2016. It was the first vegan eatery in Whitstable and was a big hit with both locals and tourists.
In 2017 Becky came onboard and we opened Potato Tomato - The Eatery on Oxford Street. We had an amazing three years and became the Number 1 restaurant in Whitstable on TripAdvisor! As well as serving delicious vegan food daily, we hosted parties, comedy nights, vegan meet-ups, information evenings, and even a mini Christmas market!
Sadly, in November 2020 we made the decision to permanently close the eatery due to the damaging effects of the pandemic on the hospitality industry.
However, after really enjoying planning the Maidstone Vegan Festival and the Whitstable Vegan Christmas Market in 2019, we have decided to make event planning our focus, along with catering and selling our food at other events.
