This go-to, one-stop shop for many people is quickly becoming a vegan haven thanks to a surprising number of plant-based products.

With an abundance of options, Walmart is further proving veganism’s place in the mainstream. So, grab your oversized shopping cart (and this list!) to make sure you don’t miss these amazing vegan finds.
Vegan products at Walmart
This mega-store has become more and more vegan-friendly over the years with the addition of a wide variety of vegan products. Occasionally, vegan brands will exclusively launch their products at Walmart before expanding their retail footprint.
In 2021, the store became the first to carry marshmallow brand Yummallo’s vegan marshmallows at all Walmart locations nationwide. In the same year, the superstore began carrying popular plant-based meat brand Impossible Foods’ vegan meatballs at over 3,000 locations nationwide. The vegan meatballs joined Walmart’s dedicated plant-based frozen section, where it joined Impossible’s other plant-based meats, namely Impossible Burger, Impossible Chicken Nuggets, and Impossible Sausage. In 2022, Beyond Meat launched its first vegan steak product, Beyond Steak, at over 5,000 stores, including many select Walmart locations. In the same year, family-size packs of vegan buffalo chicken wings from meatless brand Like Meat hit the freezer sections at over 3,600 Walmart locations just in time for the Super Bowl.
But that’s not all. When Grammy-award-winning music artist Jermaine Dupri launched his own vegan ice cream brand, JD’s Vegan, he chose to partner with Walmart for the launch of his vegan pints. “Walmart and I share the same vision of providing consumers with the best products and making healthy alternatives accessible to everyone,” Dupri said in a statement.
And beyond food products, Walmart has incorporated more sustainable initiatives into its other product offerings.
