Already a one-stop shop for consumers, Target is quickly becoming a vegan haven thanks to a surprising number of cruelty-free products. In fact, the freezer section proudly displays a “Plant-Based Protein” sign above a case packed with brands such as Gardein, Beyond Meat, and Sweet Earth Foods. This budget-friendly store makes vegan living simple with its frequent sales and abundance of options, further proving veganism’s place in the mainstream. So, grab your red shopping cart (and this list!) to make sure you don’t miss any amazing vegan finds at Target.

Is Target expanding its vegan offerings?

Yes. That can be said with certainty. Earlier this year, Tabitha Brown launched a 34-product line with Target that literally flew off shelves. They may be sold out for now, but the multi-hyphenate has teased that the entire line (sausages, burgers, meals, sauces, and more) is set to return in 2024.

In 2021, the megastore also added its own vegan line called Good & Gather Plant Based, featuring over 30 products for under $5 each. The 30 plant-based products spanned across 10 categories such as meat alternatives, plant-based dips, spreads, creamers, salad dressings, and more. Rick Gomez, Executive Vice President and Chief Food and Beverage Officer at Target, told VegNews, “Guest demand for plant-based offerings is incredibly high and continues to grow. By adding Good & Gather Plant Based to our curated assortment of plant-based offerings, we’re giving guests more of what they want and making it easy for them to discover the joy of food every day.”
