With the number of vegans growing each year, the food industry is starting to take notice in a big way. While many grocery stores offer vegan products, a new trend has hit the ground running: vegan grocery stores!
All-vegan restaurants have proven hugely successful for years, but now grocery stores that eschew meat, dairy and eggs are popping up in cities around the country. From cookies and cheeses to sausage and snacks, these stores offer vegan versions of everything.
The largest vegan grocery store, Viva la Vegan, can be found in Rancho Cucamonga, California--they also just opened a store in Los Angeles. Residents of Portland, Oregon, can visit Food Fight! and in Denver, Nooch provides delicious options. If you find yourself in the Big Apple, the Vegan Bodega is set to open soon.
Even if you don't happen to live in one of these areas, online vegan grocers, such as Rabbit Food Grocery, Pangea and Vegan Essentials, make compassionate foods available to customers across the country.

And if you are lucky enough to live near an all-vegan grocery store, take the time to explore the hundreds of options available. If you hang out near one long enough, you may see a customer or two do their happy dance as they walk through the door.
