I am also from Virginia, I live in Dinwiddie and I am about 30 minutes ouside of Richmond. I like to go to the HFS in Richmond, I have been to Ellwood Thompson's, Good Foods Grocery Store and I like to go to the Asian Grocers and pick up supplies there too
I like to go to the Farmers Market in Richmond in the summer and I also love picking fresh VA peaches at Chiles Peach Orchard and apples at Carter's Mountain. MMMM, VA produce! Shannon/Zimma
I'm going to be going to Randolph-Macon Woman's College in Lynchburg this fall, and I was wondering if anyone is privy to places where I can stock up on vegan supplies there. I found a HFS 3 miles from the college, so hopefully that should help. I really do have simple tastes, but it's good to know there are places where I can buy myself treats now and then.
Vegankat! You will be about 45 minutes from me. I work at Hampden-Sydney College. Are you from VA? I don't know the specifics of grocery shopping in Lynchburg, we do our basic shopping in Farmville and go to Richond for our "treats" but if there is a Kroger, it probably has a decent selection of veg. friendly products. Even in our little town the Kroger has a few good things.
Good luck to you in college! That is so exciting. If you are ever up this way stop in and say hi!!
I don't live in virginia beach, but a grocery that is more vegetarian friendly and carries some organic products is:
314 Laskin Rd.
Virginia Beach, VA 23451
It is located right off the strip, ugh. Anyway good luck with your internship, go PETA!!
I am currently living at home for the summer, being Springfield, VA, but I go to school in Richmond (VCU Arts) and will be back there in August. Yay Elwood Thompsons!! They have good tofu that is made by Twin Oaks, the hippie commune that is like an hour away.
hi, i live in jax, fl but i was born and raised in chesapeake, va (about 20 mins from norfolk, and va beach)
veggiekiller got there before i did on the heritage store on laskin rd. they are really great. of course being veggie isnt cheap but the heritage store makes is really worth, they have a lot to choose from.
hmmm.. trying to think of the exact time.. maybe around an hour? or 2? right up route 29..
also, there's a great store on main street downtown.. i forget the actuall name "A breath of Fresh Air" ?? something like that
but some vegan and veggie groceries
also.. if someone you do know can get a car, and you feel really ambitious (and good with directions) i know there are a coupla Trader Joe's up in Northern VA (I Always... repeat Always, get lost in Nor. VA.. to me, it's like Labyrinth, except w/o the Muppets or David Bowie)
Vegankat-It's a little over an hour from Lynchburg to Charlottesville. If you go there, eat at Ming Dynasty. It's a Chinese restaurant and about 75% of their menu is veggie. They have an amazing buffet. Also, Veggie Heaven is in Charlottesville. They have a restaurant and a grocery store. If you are ever up this way (Hampden-Sydney College and Longwood University,) let me know! Best of luck to you in college!
