Vegan Businesses in Maryland

A big part of our veganism at Crunchy Vegan is all about supporting the local community. We love to shop local. We also love to shop vegan; and while the internet is a great resource for finding vegan goods that can be delivered, we think it’s much more important to support our friends, family, and neighbors when we can.

Before we can do that, we need to know who is out there to support in the first place! That’s why we’ve begun to list all the local vegan business-owners we know about. If you know about a business that you don’t see listed, please let us know by emailing us at crunchyvegangal@gmail.com.

Markets

Earth Origins Market

http://www.earthoriginsmarket.com/

Review pending.

Farmers Markets (Multiple Locations)

Always a great option for getting fresh produce and many markets will have specialty vegan vendors. Find the market closest to you.

Mill Valley General Store, Baltimore City (Remington)

http://millvalleygeneralstore.com/

They have a wonderful bulk section. You can also sign up for a One Straw Farm CSA and pick up at this store. You certainly can’t complete your entire shopping here every week, but they’re a great store to support.

MOM’s Organic Market (Multiple Locations)

Crunchyvegangal Favorite!!

My absolute favorite store ever! Roots Market has more vegan stuff, but MOM’s has just been much more accessible to me, and I love that there’s now a location in my neighborhood that I can walk to! MOM’s will also offset the emissions from customer travel.

The Natural, Timonium

http://www.thenaturalmkt.com/

Before Trader Joe’s, before Whole Foods, and way before MOM’s, there was The Natural. The Natural is a tiny little store, but they pack a surprising amount of products in. You could probably complete all your shopping here. But in an emergency, they’re across from a Giant Food Supermarket which has a significant “health food” section. The Natural also has a vegetarian cafe in their store.

OK Natural Food Store, Baltimore City

http://www.oknaturalfoods.com/

This little shop is everything. And by that I mean it’s quaint, welcoming, diverse, and locally owned. The store is tiny, but just because it’s a small shop doesn’t mean they’re terribly limited in their supply….damn they’re efficient! OK Natural Foods has all the essential divisions of a conventional market. They’ve got dry goods, candies, dairy, frozen, snacks, bulk goods, and so on; and (perhaps best of all) individual Tofutti Cuties (ice cream sandwiches) for 65 cents! Plus, they offer really competitive prices on their products, and great sale prices! You may not be able to complete all your shopping here, but you can save a lot of money AND support a local business, while supplementing between larger trips to the conventional market.

Roots Market, Clarkesville

http://rootsmkt.com/

A wonderful market that emphasizes vegetarian foods over meat (which is stuffed into a corner!!). Roots is fantastic; they always have the latest vegan products and their fresh prepared foods have never disappointed me. The best part is that Roots is part of the Conscious Corner shopping center, where you can eat at a vegan restaurant, shop at a pet store, buy goods from a fair trade shop, and shop for some organic, biodynamic, vegan wines and gluten free beverages.

Trader Joe’s (Multiple Locations)

http://www.traderjoes.com/

I can’t seem to complete all my shopping at Trader Joe’s. But they’re a familiar market for many. They’re also incredibly affordable. On top of that, some of the Trader Joe’s brand vegan items just can’t be beat!

Whole Foods (Multiple Locations)

http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/

I love Whole Foods. They just always seem to be missing that one thing I really needed. Different locations also stock different foods, and I tend to forget which is which. My favorite part of Whole Foods, however, is there prepared foods and the salad/hot bar. They make great meals!

Krista is a therapist in private practice in Owings Mills. She works with children, teens, and adults dealing with various issues but specializes in abuse-related trauma and other boundary issues (e.g. bullying, lack of assertiveness, and relationship issues). She is a drama therapist, which means that she often uses dramatic and other creative techniques in addition to talking during sessions. As a vegan for 6 years, Krista understands the unique challenges that vegans face, such as feeling isolated and experiencing activist burnout. Krista feels that the therapist and vegan aspects of her are very interrelated because both are important to her in bringing positive change to the world.
