Online Vegan Shopping Guide: Canada, USA, Australia, UK, and Beyond!

Do you ever start a project with zest and vitality only to feel like you’ve created an uncontrollable monster after a couple hours?

Examples: Cleaning out your closet. Organizing a pantry. Home renovations. Writing a thesis. Wedding thank yous. Sometimes, it has to get worse before it gets better.

Well, that’s sort of how I felt with this little pet project of mine. What started as an innocent list quickly became a huge undertaking. I asked you for suggestions yesterday on twitter and Facebook for online and in-person stores and they came a floodin’ in! (If you are curious, check out the list here on my Facebook page). My list quickly turned into 4 pages of chicken scratch. Originally, I started making a blog post linking and organizing ALL of the in-store and online vegan stores across the world. You can see how I quickly got in over my head. After working on it all day yesterday, I decided to just focus on the online stores for this post and then figure out what I will do with the storefront list after.

This vegan online shopping guide is a follow-up to Monday’s “Inside my Vegan Pantry” post. My goal for this guide today is to bring awareness to all of the wonderful vegan & vegan-friendly online stores. Feel free to do some price comparing to get the best bang for your buck.

Most of the stores below are food-related, but I also included some clothing and cosmetics as well.

I will add to this list as other recommendations come in (feel free to let me know about other online stores in the comment section!). It’s also likely that I missed some of your suggestions on Twitter and FB yesterday, so you can comment below if you don’t see it on the list and I will add it in.

rensje April 13, 2012

oui et non :) Je suis Hollandaise mais je habite depuis 16ans en France. Mon mari est français. J’ai decouvert il y a 2ans que je suis intolérante au gluten et lactose et je mange pas de viande (mais je mange des oeufs donc pas végétalien). Trouver des produits végétalien ici meme dans les magasin bio, c’est pas facile. Donc merci pour le lien!
Thanks you Angela. I found your site some time ago and you have helped me in a lot of ways!!!

Thanks for the great list! iherb is generally my go-to online store (they have great selection, good prices, quick shipping), but I’m excited to check out the others! I’m blaming you for any purchases I make. ;)

Hi Angela,

Fantastic list! 100% Pure is also great for vegan-friendly cosmetics. I love there coffee bean eye cream and Purity Facial Cleanser and Mask. They also have really great green practices. This is a response I received from them after writing in to inquire about their practices.

“100%Pure believes in helping people, animals and the environment. We use 100% recycled goods for our boxes, we use bio-degradable packing peanuts and our packaging for our products are from post recycled good or plastic- For example, our Powdered Blushes that are in the pink tins are made from post recycled soda cans. Even the paper we use in the corporate office is made from recycled paper.”

Unfortunately it seems that this site only mails to Canada – not to the US. Bummer because the products look great!

Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat April 11, 2012

Wow Ange, this is awesome! There’s also a vegan groupon-like website, Vegan Cuts, that delivers deals (I think once a week) on vegan-friendly products. I haven’t purchased anything yet but they have some good deals!

Reply

Sara C April 16, 2012

Yep – and there is one called “Spencer’s Market” – same concept – like Groupon for vegan stuff. I’ve ordered a couple of things from them.

Jesse (OutToLunchCreations) April 11, 2012

Thanks for putting this together! I want to start buying my pantry staples in bulk so I excited to do some cost comparisons. iHerb is another Canadian online store (not sure if they deliver to the US) that should be added to the list.

Thanks for sharing. I’m recently gone gluten and lactose-free so I’m all for trying new things!

This is great! I have to say, as I watched the responses pouring in on FB, I thought, wow, this is massive. But I knew that your customary optimism would find a way to work it out!

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) April 11, 2012

heh I’m thinking about making a website for resources some day. So we’ll see. I think it would have to be user-submitted because I don’t think I can do it on my own!

Liz April 11, 2012

Excellent list! There is also Rabbit Food Grocery (http://www.rabbitfoodgrocery.com/) which ships via USPS- however they are not set up to ship refrigerated/frozen items yet. They also offer local pick-up in Austin, TX.

I need to check these sites out … there are obviously waaaay more sites than I thought out there. I’m not vegan, but I like to experiment :)

Michelle@PeachyPalate April 11, 2012

Great post! I live in Ireland so even the UK links will prove useful. Now all we need is more than one vegan restaurant!

Anniemac April 22, 2012

Michelle, I totally agree !!
The odd time I get to dublin cornucopia is mobbed !!

Our vegan resources are pretty limited – I spend a lot of time in the kitchen – and am well used to getting looked at like in a crazy person in some restaurants but have had great experiences too !!

I went to Yamamori last night, Japanese Cuisine has so many vegan options it was great!

Anniemac April 22, 2012

Ooh nice! Just filled our faces with vegetable nori rolls ala Alicia silverstones ‘kind diet’.
Messy but yummy!
I will have to check out your blog for some local tips and inspiration – I have pretty much relied on oh she glows to feed my family the last few years, it’s good to know we aren’t the only ones on the island going vegan!

Their cupcakes are AMAZING, and everything can be ordered or brought from their shop in Philly, PA!!!!

Well.ca (ships to the US as well) has a bunch of vegan products – food, soaps, supplements, etc. I’m not vegan myself but doing a search for ‘vegan’ on the site brings up 16 pages of products. I’m not sure of the cost to ship to the US but they ship for free in Canada no matter how much your order costs. They’re also a great resource for gluten-free products as well.

Azure Standard delivers throughout a lot of the United States. They have a huge variety of products. They sell organic products from other companies as well as items they grow on their organic farm in Oregon.

THANK YOU SOOO MUCH. I’m from Australia and was having a massive rant about how I wish I lived in the US because I couldn’t find unsweetened applesauce or almond milk, nor could I find an affordable pack of Stevia.

Great idea, putting together a list like this… that is a big undertaking, but it’s so, so appreciated!

Neverfeltbettervegan.com is a local store here in Sacramento, CA that does online shipping too. The oweners are really nice and they have a variety of items from food to clothing.

Hey Angela-

Hail Merry is AMAZING! They make vegan and gluten-free foods… the macaroons are awesome! I recently moved to Texas and found them in my local Whole Foods, but you can also order online. Here’s the info for online ordering:

Thanks for putting this list together- it makes things super easy and convenient!

It’s nice to have master lists like this compiled…now if only someone else’s credit card came with it so I could go virtual shopping :)

Not strictly vegan but fantastic nonetheless:

http://www.realfoods.co.uk/

Both a shop irl in Edinburgh and online, it has free delivery over £15, really important for me as I live in a remote part of Scotland, especially as every other company seems to have extortionate delivery charges!

Love the blog btw, recently started reading and think it’s great x

I’m moving to Australia at the end of this summer (from Canada), and this is going to be hugely helpful :) Thanks so much Angela.

Anna @ The Guiltless Life April 11, 2012

This is SUPER helpful as, being in Canada, I feel as though every time I hear about a new store I then find out it’s in the States and either doesn’t ship to Canada or wants to charge the earth to do so! Thanks Ange!

Jocelyn @ Peace Love Nutrition April 11, 2012

Thanks for helping my online shopping addiction : )

Healthy foods are ok! haha

It’s clothes I have to be careful about…

Here in the UK, when I can’t get to Wholefoods, I use Planet Organic and Goodness Direct! :)

Reply

Anna April 11, 2012

This is great! You’ve really spent time in helping your readers out!

As I said in the previous post, I (like a lot of us Europeans) use http://www.iherb.com because of the cheap postages all around the world. With most companies the postage is so high that there is no point in ordering – iherb is the only one that I’ve found worhy of ordering from.

Psst! First time customers get a five dollar discount with the code KOS436.

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) April 11, 2012

wow that is great to know, will make a note!

Reply

Angela April 11, 2012

For the UK goodnessdirect.co.uk is a really good site for all types of dietry requirements. Thats were I get all my ‘weird’ food as it’s called in my family!

iherb is also popular with UK bloggers & readers as they have really cheap international shipping if your order is less than 4 pounds in weight.

Jamie April 11, 2012

Second vote for well.ca! Not vegan myself, but a quick search showed 507 products ranging from soaps to soups :)

I’ve ordered all kinds of stuff from them including chia seeds, apple cider vinegar, quinoa, etc. I love the free shipping no matter how much your order costs, and their customer service is top notch.

Reply

Hailey April 11, 2012

Oooh, I can’t wait to check these links out! Thanks for the resources! As far as a storefront, I keep being impressed by Costco. :-) I get my huge bags of chia seeds and quinoa and wild rice there…not to mention lots of organic frozen/fresh produce. Wonderful.

Reply

Jess April 11, 2012

For us Canadians, well.ca is a great resource, especially if you live in a more remote area where specialty foods are harder to come by. Their prices tend to be a little marked up, but they offer FREE shipping on any order anywhere in Canada!
