Vegan grocery stores

Josh and I are currently traipsing around the southwest of England, enjoying the gorgeous views and eating whatever we can get our hands on.

Thanks to two wonderful vegan grocery stores, we have not gone without snacks for our vegan road trip.

Check them out.

When you visit Exeter, make time to visit Chris at Seasons. This grocery store used to be vegetarian but made the switch to 100% vegan just a few weeks ago. Get all your pantry items, pre-prepared sandwiches, chocolate bars, drinks and more.

It becomes an even more satisfying experience when you realise what a friendly person Chris is and how passionate he is about veganism.

You can visit Seasons online, like them on Facebook and follow them on Instagram. (You can also read this awesome guide to vegan Exeter)

Our road trip continued further south and west to the port city of Plymouth, home to one of the best-stocked vegan grocery stores in the UK. There isn’t a lot that Ethica doesn’t have.

All the vegan chocolate. Vegan ice cream. Frozen food. Pet food. Toiletries. Everything!

The shop is packed with everything from essential groceries to decadent treats and it is truly a must-visit for everyone living in or visiting the southwest.

Visit Ethica on Facebook and follow them on Instagram.

Support independent vegan business and shop!

Berlin top three

Post by:

joe panel

My favourite vegan places in Berlin.

This is a difficult post to write, as there are so many great places to choose from in Berlin – and new places keep opening! So I should say now that you’ll almost certainly disagree with me, and this is my personal list of the locations I enjoy visiting the most right now. These three eateries are 100% vegan. They’re not in any particular order, as I can’t really choose between them! But they’re definitely my top three, and I think that they’re almost perfect. Read more ›

Vegan business closing

This is sad news.

One of the best vegan food providers in the UK is set to cease trading tomorrow (Saturday August 22, 2015). I am terribly saddened to report the end of The Mighty Food Fight.

Hannah and Isabel have decided to pack away their magic donut recipes and shutter up the food truck, as this much-adored Bristol business is wrapping up.


Here is what the food superstars had to say when I asked for comment:

It’s goodbye for now from us and our beloved food truck René! We’ve had an amazing adventure serving the lovely people of Bristol and beyond some tasty Mighty Sub Rolls and many glorious vegan donuts. We’re so grateful to all our loyal Food Fighters and everyone who has supported us, particularly when René was poorly. We’ll miss all of our customers but we hope that we’ve inspired people to seek out the best cruelty-free flavours. Fancy a chance to try a TMFF donut before we close? Come on down to Moor Beer Tap on Days Road, Bristol, between midday and 8pm this Saturday where we’ll be holding our Last Hurrah with vegan beer from Moor, along with two other street food traders from Bristol Eats.


Terrible news for anyone in love with spectacular vegan food.

You really should do whatever it takes to get along to this final trading day for The Mighty Food Fight. Hannah and Isabel will be serving up hundreds of vegan donuts including Boston Cream, Strawberry Daiquiri, Lemon, Lime + Toasted Coconut and many more.


As this final event is run in conjunction with Moor Beer Company, you can also look forward to vegan mac ‘n’ cheese balls drowned in a fig, tomato and Moor stout ketchup.

Don’t make excuses. Get to the event from midday for stunning vegan food. Get all the details on the Facebook event page.

While you are feeding yourself silly, make sure you take the time to thank Hannah and Isabel for everything they have done to raise the profile of vegan food in Bristol. They have made a profound difference.
