I know, I saw an old thread with a handful of people on it, but the posts were really old.

I've been to Arkansas, does that count?

Thanks. I find it hard to live healthy here thought. Wild oats is really my only option. at all. It's very frustrating.

I'm from Arkansas, closer to Fort Smith though. Whole Foods in LR, and a couple of stores in Fort Smith are my only options as well. But it helps me not to rely on processed foods as much.

I'm not in Arkansas now, though I grew up in NWArk and was living there for over a year after I got back from college. In Fayetteville there was only ONF (Ozark Natural Foods), which was pretty good but could be expensive--which is much like Wild Oats and Whole Foods. There was also Cook's in Rogers which was more expensive.

Anyway, I think a lot of those stores are good places to ask around about vegetarian events or just meeting other vegetarians.



I might be back there if that's where I end up getting a job. Anyway, welcome all and good luck! AR in general is not the easiest place to be veg.

Hi, I'm currently living in TX, doing some research about AR, Conway in particular. Hendrix College seems to be veg friendly, what about the place in general? Also, can a person who doesn't drive survive there or is everything in Little Rock? Is there any kind of public transportation between the two places?



Thanks for any help.

Good evening! I'm from Central AR to (N. Little Rock). I get as much as I can at Kroger in their organic/healthy section and occasionally go to Whole Foods and Fresh Market.

I'm from Conway! We only have one health food store & it's not that big. As far as I know we don't have any public transportation.

Hello, I am original from Germany and live in Arkansas now - Little Rock area. Kroger has a very good big selection of healthy food. Even the LR Airforce Base is offering a variety of healthy products. I guess the demand for these things are getting bigger so the stores are finally adding more to their selection.

Sometimes I feel like the only one! I'm the only real vegetarian that I know. (Another used to refer to herself as a vegetarian but only because she was unaware of the word "pescetarian" which is really what she is.)

If you're ever in DFW let me know! There are some vegetarian restaurants in town.

I live near Fort Smith. Does anyone know of any natural food stores in this area? I used to live in Fayetteville, and it seemed like vegetarianism was much more common there than it is here.

Jonesboro! And there are several vegan and vegetarians in the area. We have a couple of health food stores and Kroger has really stepped up their vegan section. It's pretty awesome. We even have a pizza joint (Maddio's) that has vegan cheese as an option! We're making progress!
