This week, Citi Field ballpark, home of the New York Mets, released its new 2010 menu, featuring vegan fare including Yves Spicy Veggie Hot Dogs and Yves Harvest Veggie Burgers. The veggie dogs previously sold at Citi Field were vegetarian, but not vegan. Aside from the two new vegan additions, Mets fans can also still indulge in cruelty-free concessions such as soft pretzels, knishes, veggie sushi, and vegetarian sandwiches. More and more ballparks across the country are hearing the call for veg-friendly options, including Citizens Bank Park, the stadium that the Philadelphia Phillies call home. Citizens Bank Park, which is currently holding a contest to rename its signature hot dog, sells vegan-friendly franks with unusual plant-based toppings, such as broccoli rabe and spicy roasted peppers.
