Moving vegan Can't find Vegan groceries In Pa. :(

I've been a vegan for 2 years and have been fortunate to live in a community that has a common market and a wegmans. But I'm Moving Monongahela Pennsylvania and They only have Giant eagle there an the natural food store is the size of a 711. So any suggestions on where to go to get good vegan groceries In the local area?

During famer's market season, of course that will be an option for good produce (localharvest.com can help you locate the nearest one). You could sign up for a CSA too, though I believe most farmers do registration in early spring so you pay for the whole growing season at once. Are there any ethnic markets in the area? I recently took a better look around one of the local Asian markets and saw several ingredients that have popped up in vegan recipes that I couldn't find at my regular grocery store: Asian noodles, seaweed, chickpea flour, bulk dry beans, etc.

No ethnic markets its like im in a meatatarian bubble im like an hr from Pittsbugh but i don't want to have to drive that far to get groceries. Im hoping when spring roles around that we have a good farmers market. But i cant seem to find anywhere that sells tofurkey roasts and other specialty items.

Hmm... what about getting all your veggies, fruit, beans, rice, and other staples at your local grocery stores and then just doing bulk orders of specialty items (tofurkey roasts, soy curls, vegan cheeses, etc) from a place like Vegan Essentials or Food Fight Grocery? Would that work?

I'm in a similar situation. I travel over an hour to reach Wegmans and Giant grocery stores. We have another store 30 mins away with some basic options. I tend to grab freezer bags and make the hour trip. I don't know if it is possible but after looking at Monongahela on Google maps, I would be heading to Pittsburgh as it looks to be about an hour or so away too from there. Also, go to happycow.net and search your area on there as they have a directory of vegan restaurants and stores etc. Hope that helps some.Smile
