Update: About a week after Plantbar said it was coming to Camden Yards, the eatery announced that it would not in fact be opening a kiosk at the ballpark. The original article appears below.

Buy me some gluten-free falafel and coconuts ...

Oriole Park at Camden Yards is stepping up its vegan options for the 2015 season.

The operators of Plantbar in the Belvedere Square Market will be at Oriole Park this year selling cold-pressed juices and their gluten-free, vegan and sugar-free line of prepared foods and desserts.

In addition to its own products, the kiosk will vend vegan "hot dogs" and "hamburgers" from the Seattle-based Field Roast Meat Co., according to Celeste Corsaro, who is partners in Plantbar with Cafe Zia owner Danielle Troia.

The main meal option at Plantbar will be a bento box with Plantbar's spiral zucchini "noodle" salad and vegan falafel balls made with walnuts and Moroccan spices. The primary dessert offering will be vegan, gluten-free strawberry and chocolate mousse.

Corsaro said that in addition to the pre-packed cold-pressed juices, Plantbar at Camden Yards will be serving one special fresh-pressed beverage, a blend of orange and apple juices.

"It's a beautiful orange color," Corsaro said.

But Corsaro said the big attention-getter might turn out to be young coconuts, which Plantbar will crack to order.

"You'll be seeing people walking around with coconuts, sipping the juice out of a straw," Corsaro said.

The Plantbar kiosk will be located on the lower-level concourse behind home plate. It will make its official debut at the opening home game of Orioles' 2015 season, which is April 10.
