The US vegan market is on the increase. According to Statista, in 2022, sales of plant-based foods hit around $8 billion, and they’re likely to keep growing, as more consumers choose animal-free foods for their health, the environment, and ethical reasons. In fact, research suggests that right now, more than half of young people follow a flexitarian lifestyle, which means they are actively choosing to limit the amount of meat and dairy products they eat.

But if you want to top up your fridge, freezer, and pantry with the best vegan food, where do you go? Well, we have good news. According to VegNews editors, there are great places to choose from.
