As the largest city in the state of Washington, is it safe to assume the Seattle will be a vegan-friendly location? Luckily yes it is, as more and more vegan restaurants are opening up their doors. Vegan visitors to Seattle who are in search for some high quality dietary supplies also have plenty of shopping options, as well as an array of street food vans selling delicious vegan dishes.

Vegan Seattleites can find their favourite vegan products at all major supermarkets and grocery stores throughout the city, including Fred Meyer, Safeway, and QFC. There are also a handful of stores specializing in organic food; Whole Foods is probably the best known, but PCC and Madison Market offer very good options as well.
Cruelty-free food lovers in the Emerald City are fortunate to have Vegan Haven, where they can shop for snacks, baking supplies, vegan sweets and frozen dinners. The best part about Vegan Haven is that they are constantly enriching their line of products! If you are looking for vegan cookbooks, Vegan Haven is the right address.
