Top Vegan Cities In The World 2017


#9 Portland

Veganism and plant-based eating are an integral part of Portland’s social fabric. The city’s landscape is dotted with a wide variety of fabulous vegan eats, including 20 types of vegan artisan cheese produced at Vtopia Cheese Shop & Deli, fine Pacific Northwest local seasonal ingredients featured at Harvest at the Bindery, and exquisitely prepared and presented small plates at top-rated American/European fusion restaurant Farm Spirit.

In addition to many vegan restaurants, Portland is well known for having a number of vegan food carts such as Homegrown Smoker Vegan BBQ with its highly rated mouth-watering vegan barbeque, a vegan bed and breakfast (The Cherokee Rose Inn), a vegan shoe/handbag/clothing/accessory store (Ether Shoes Warehouse), a decadent vegan chocolate shop (Missionary Chocolates), and even a vegan strip mall with a vegan tattoo shop (Scapegoat Tattoo), grocery store (Food Fight! Grocery), bake shop (Sweetpea Baking Co.) and clothing shop (Herbivore Clothing). Some new Vegan spots have opened recently such as Doe Donuts, Aviv for Israeli cuisine, and Virtuous Pie pizza. The second Food Fight! location is developing into a new vegan mini mall with a vegan cafe (Jet Black Coffee Company) next door and a vegan Mexican vegan food truck (Los Gorditos).

Portland is a very hipster and eco-friendly city, and with 34 fully-vegan restaurants, 28 vegetarian, and 166 veg-friendly options, Portland’s high density of vegan establishments mean you won’t have to travel far to find what you are looking for.
