One of the booths coming in high on my list for every single food item is the Earth Eats Marketplace. Earth Eats is known as the plant-based food capital of the Epcot Food and Wine Festival. You’ll find three different menu items here, all sporting the little green leaf on the menu indicating the plant-based options.
Additionally, you’ll find that the terrarium dessert is listed as gluten-free, while the savory items are not. Below is a photo of the booth. This year its location is in the World Showcase Place area nearby the Mexico Pavilion.
Outside the Earth Eats marketplace, the entire menu is on display.

First, we will look at the items I tried at the year’s festival. Unfortunately, it was drizzling rain, so these pictures didn’t turn out quite as well as I would have liked.
Below is the Impossible Farmhouse Meatball served with lentil bread, spinach, marinated vegetables, and creamy herb dressing. The meatball made by Impossible is meatless, but it is tough to tell. I think that either savory item at this marketplace would make for an excellent introduction to Impossible products.
The meatball comes in a wrap of sorts. Inside the wrap are marinated veggies. My serving had red and yellow bell peppers. The dressing was somewhat similar to ranch but a bit more herbaceous. All of the flavors in the dish go well together.
The Impossible meatball is a dish I wouldn’t have a problem ordering in the future.
For dessert, I went with the Chocolate Pudding Terrarium. The pudding is another enjoyable dish.
The terrarium is described as avocado cream, matcha crumble, and baby herbs. The pudding was delicious and had a thicker consistency than your average pudding. The texture does have a bit of a grit to it as well. It almost reminded me of cake batter that hadn’t been over-beaten.
While I wasn’t for sure about the terrarium at first, I found myself enjoying it more and more. I ended up completely devouring both dishes at Earth Eats. That’s not something I do at every booth, even when I like something.
What I wanted to order was the Impossible burger slider. But I had tried it previously, and there were no changes this year.
Last year’s slider was the first time I had ever eaten anything from Impossible. And I loved it. Since then, I’ve had several Impossible burgers from Burger King and a couple on Disney property. I’ve yet to be disappointed.
Word of warning, though on the slider, it’s a spicy dish, so make sure to have water nearby in case. I love spicy food and a little heat. And trust me, I’m not exaggerating. You’ll know when that heat surprisingly kicks in!
