Hi Slynny! I live in Sheboygan, so I'm not too far away from you. I used to drive to the Outpost once a week to get some of my groceries, but am able to find most of that around here now. Piggly Wiggly is really starting to take off with organics and natural foods along with the other stores.
Have you ever visited Vegan Essentials? I'd like to the next time I'm in Milwaukee, but have no clue when that'll be.
Well, hopefully other Wisconsinites show up on this thread. It's nice to know that there is at least one veggie close to me, though!
We just went hiking at Kohler-Andrae Park today! I love it there. It's less than five miles from our house, and the north beach & trails are great. It's the only part of the park that allows dogs, but it's the best part, so that's okay.
I e-mailed vegan essentials one time to ask if they're ever going to open a store. They said that they might in the future, but if I ever wanted to shop there to just let them know and they'd arrange something with me. Very nice!
Anyway, their address is 7722 W. Menomonee River Pkwy. in
Yup, that's where they are located. Here's a FAQ from their website to help out anyone that wants to visit them:
Do you have a retail store or are you strictly an online mail-order business?
At this time we do not have a location, but we are seeking a new Milwaukee location for a larger warehouse and retail outlet due to high demand from our customers (as well as our ever-decreasing space in our current location!) When we have a retail location, (or at the least, a new warehouse) we will be sure to post information on our site. At this time, if you are in our area and wish to shop in our warehouse you can call us at (414) 607-1953 or email us to make an appointment - we are very open to visitors and love to have people stop in when they are able! Our hours that we are around do vary but we can open the warehouse anywhere from 10 AM to 8 PM, so call us to discuss a visit!
Yay! We can always use one more veghead in Wisconsin. There are usually pretty good job openings where I work, but that would mean at least a 45 minute commute for you. Let me know if you're interested and I'll PM you the details.
aww, i'm so excited there's others with me here in wi! i live in bayview, by the lake. when it's warm out, i pretend the lake is clean and sit at the beach (or something sandy and trashy called a beach)
ee sane is okay. pretty greasy though. i love royal india or maharaja's. the african hut would be good, i've heard it's good, but i don't know if its vegan, i heard it's praises from non veggies.amd yes beans is expensive, and trendy, but i think there food is good.. so just don't pay attentions to the "cool " yuppie people there. i'm up for whatever u guys decide, its all good food.
hey, i can't beleive i forgot. there's this great new place right on my block that serves awesome vegan food. they even have a seperate grill and fryer for the vegan stuff. it's awesome. yesterday i had chicken fried tofu sandwich, yummm! it's called polomino, has anyone esle been there?
Wow! I leave the state for a while and look what happens on the Wisconsin thread! So far, I don't have any plans for the 28th, so maybe I'll try to take a ride to Milwaukee to have lunch with you guys. That would be fun!
