Veg-In-Out Market is the first 100 percent vegan supermarket to open in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The new supermarket stocks a “huge array” of popular plant-based foods including local favorites and some “new discoveries.”

The supermarket was founded to provide locals with a worry-free, 100 percent plant-based shopping experience. Veg-In-Out will offer a variety of treats and everyday shelf-stable cooking items; vegan junk food, frozen, and pre-packaged refrigerated products are all pictured on the company’s official Instagram.

“With Veg-In-Out Market we hope to bring a sense of community between those who are currently vegan, those who are thinking of becoming vegan, and those who don’t know they’re vegan… yet,” said Veg-In-Out co-founder Erik Rogers in a statement. 

“We want a judgment-free zone,” Rogers explained. “We all start our journey to becoming a vegan in different ways and for different reasons. The important part is that we get there.”

Veg In-Out Market stocks products such as Sweet Loren’s gluten-free chocolate chunk cookie dough, Chameleon cold-brew coffee, Beyond Meat, JUST Egg, Raised quiche, and Gardein breakfast bowls. Veg-In-Out does not currently plan to sell fresh produce.

“A small portion of your purchase goes to help animals and those who love them in the Las Vegas area and nationwide,” says Veg-In-Out on its website. “This will change to a different non-profit organization each month.”

The new vegan supermarket will sell Beyond Meat.

Rising Demand for Vegan Food

In the U.S, more and more people are embracing vegan food to improve their health, help the environment, and to boycott animal cruelty.

Eighty percent of Americans have said that they would like to swap out meat for plant-based products. Plant-based milk is a staple purchase for 48 percent of American consumers — regardless of their diet.

Las Vegas already has a growing vegan scene. It has a 100 percent plant-based butchers shop, a vegan hot dog cart, and a number of vegan-friendly restaurants, including Big Whiskey’s American Restaurant & Bar. The meat-heavy establishment launched a vegan menu earlier this year, it was the first in the franchise to do so.

Veg-In-Out Market opens on November 8 at 2301 E. Sunset Road, Suite 8 & 9
Las Vegas, NV 89119.
