    Kinda vegan-friendly in the city, but campus is a world of its own

    Oh, I live in NC and not too far from Asheville, though I can't manage to get up there very often (they have an Earth Fare and supposedly have quite a few vegan friendly restaurants).
    i was going to try and get up to asheville this weekend but all their bed and breakfasts were booked and i couldnt get off of work anyways! oh well another time!

    If you ever manage to get up to Asheville, maybe we can have a girl vegans' day out and check out all the great vegan restaurants and grocery stores Part of the reason I never get up there is not having anyone who's vegan to do "vegany" things

    Im originally from chico Ca. very vegan friendly. But now I live in Charleston South Carolina, Don't come here.It's not veg*friendly at all.

    Huh. I would never have imagined Chico to be very veg friendly. Live and learn.

    BTW, everyone I know who ever went to Chico State either died of alcohol poisoning or had a friend who died of alcohol poisoning. And it's too freakin' hot there. (That's the closest icon I could find for me panting in the heat.)

    I'm originally from Mystic, CT but have lived all over including: Raleigh, NC; Wichita, KS; Durham, NH; Westchester Co., NY. I'm in Brooklyn now. There's tons of veg friendly stuff, but not near where I am - they all require a train or bus ride, and seeing as there's a strike . . .

    Anyway, Asheville is WAY vegan friendly! Southwestern CT is expensive and pretentious, but you can get to a Trader Joe's way easier and quicker than me.

    Now I'm in Houston, Texas. I find some great stuff here at the whole food stores, which I couldn't get at all back home.

    I don't have much luck yet at restaurants, but maybe I just haven't figured it out yet.

    The most difficult for me is not so much the food but the attitudes. I've got a brother living in Austin, and he tells me it's a much more vegan-friendly city.

    Me too! You have to love Portland. I am moving there in about eight months, actually. There are so many opportunities in Portland as well. Best of all, it doesn't have the same feel as other big cities; that polluted, trapped feeling you get in other places.

    I'll be going to Portland State University. I'm so excited... I think I'll end up living like two blocks away from a vegan grocery! And I'm of course excited about more than that, like having cool vegan neighbors!

    im currently in milwaukee wi...
    and despite the complaints i hear from some, i find it not such a bad place to be vegan... but i live basically downtown, and im less than 1mi away from a oganic grocery store that has a super vegan friendly deli/ cafe.

    plus chicago diner (<3) is only 1 + hour away!!

    Oh, that's great! I will be living about 4-5 blocks from the university. Are you getting housing across the river? Sounds like you might be living near Food Fight vegan grocery store? If so, they don't have much in the way of fresh foods. However, there are coops and a New Seasons close by - so you have a lot of great choices. And there's a farmers market almost right on campus every week. The local campus pizza place also has vegan options. There are some other vegan options on campus but I'm sure you'll find them all soon after arriving! You'd better keep in touch, as I like nothing more than feeding hungry college kids (actually, one of them is raiding my fridge as we speak).

    My friend, also vegan, and I are going to get an apartment, but we're not sure were at the moment, though we have looked at a few places. We might end up with one of the Universities studio apartments.

    Also, it's not that far from whole foods, so that's another place to shop.

    And I will of course keep in touch! There's nothing I'll like more a vegan college student than being fed!

    I live in the heart of the dairy state in Madison, Wisconsin. I live downtown and it turns out Madison is very liberal and very vegan-friendly.

    I've been there when visiting a friend in Chicago! Yummy. Chicago is a great place for good vegan food.

    I'm from St. Louis, MO, which is not too bad for vegan food, although I wish it was better. I go to school in Rolla, MO, which is a lot worse. Luckily I make it home fairly often.

    I'm in Landenberg, PA.

    It's a little outside Philly, but it's all country out here. We have five acres and a 200 year old farm house. We have four acres of corn growing and the other acre is tomatoes and random veggies and fruits. We have a few natural stores around here, but also a lot of hunters and the like. But the city has some great vegan restuarants.

    thats kinda how clairmont, California is. its a smallish college city. i go there all the time because its wonderful. it has a folk music store, a Rhino Records, a great used book store, a huge health food market, and a few little health markets in the village area. its wonderful, but sadly it is small and sort of empty. they also have a folk festival every year, which is great.
