The best WFM for vegans in the Chicago area
Posted on 04 / 05 / 2011
This may not be the brand new fancy pants Lincoln Park Location - don't get me wrong it's still nice and fancy - but it's certainly the best location for vegans. We have a vegan friend that works at this location and they've confirmed my statement (I believe they said most of the buyers here are vegan). Either way, I come to this location for my exotic vegan stuff...stuff I can't find at any other Whole Foods in the area.
To name a few items: Daiya (of course), Shreese (cheeses and cream cheese), Wayfare Foods (We Can't Say It's Cheese, We Can't Say It's Sour Cream), Ste. Martens Cheese (local), almond cheese (from Oregon), various fake meats, desserts, etc.
If you're looking to eat a meal at WF, I'd have to recommend the brand new Lincoln Park location, as they have many little restaurants inside, all with several vegan options. The Lincoln Park location is where we take friends from out of town on tour...you'll see why when you go.
