Im soooo happy, I have to announce it. I was talking to a friend today about how hard it is to find some vegan food items up here in the middle of nowhere and then he says to me "yeah thank god they opened that Health food store." I was like, "a health food store???? tell me tell me!!" So he took me there and I was in vegan heaven. Everything I need and couldnt get without driving 3 hours! I talked to the lady that runs it and she is going to order me rice dream ice cream..oooh i cant wait. Im so hungry now!<br><br><br><br>
Anyone here know my pain? Or live in a town with a grocery store that thinks 1 aisle of healthy items should be enough and no health food store as a safe haven? I never thought I would get so excited about a new store <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

yes - I was quite excited when Squeakers opened here. It is a vegetarian/vegan restaurant and it also sells vegetarian/vegan food. I go there on a weekly basis to shop and eat. They have this avocado bagel that is out of this world. Kroger makes an attempt to sell vegetarian, but sometimes it is a bit lacking.

Miami is really small, and the co-op has soy beverage, but only plain, and only because my mom is lactose intolerant so she asked them to stock it.<br><br>
Other than that, the closest big town of 8000, Winkler, has a wider selection of soy beverage, and two brands of tofu, and a couple of packs of veggie burgers and dogs. It's very limited.<br><br>
I can't wait to move to Winnipeg if only for a better food selection. (otherwise I'm not to keen on living in a city)

Yeah, and Trader Joe's, and Erewhon... L.A. may not have made PETA's top 10 list (it was honorable mention), but it sure beats anywhere else I've ever lived for vegan dining and shopping.<br><br><br><br>
I understand the joy at finding a place like that, though. I feel it every time I discover a good new vegan or (vegan-friendly) restaurant.

Oh man! I so wish I could take your orders and send you all your hearts desires. Seems there's always something I learn about and can't find right away, but I'm so fortunate to live 30 mins. from Loma Linda. Of course, there's the Loma Linda market, but also Clark's Nutrition where I can find all kinds of organic produce and bulk herbs and supplements.<br><br><br><br>
I hope with the enlightment of the general population there will be more availability for all of us.<br><br><br><br>
Keep on keepin' on!!

Wow, I feel so lucky! York (UK) is a fairly small city but we have 2 health food stores in the town centre and a veggie grocery shop within walking distance from the centre, as well as various deli's we can get stuff from.<br><br>
Wish there was somewhere I could buy tofutti from, though.

a new grocery store opened, with a bigger natural foods(read: vegan) section. its ok. I still have to look around more, but you can imagine my delight..we have a trader joe's, but it must be about 30 minutes away and I can't drive so it's hard to coerce my mom to take me.
