I want to go vegan!

Congratulations on the making the step towards a more compassionate, environmentally-friendly and healthy way of life. Manchester is one of the best places in the country for vegans.

To aid you on your vegan voyage, try these tips:
  1. Come to one of our social meetings, where you can meet other vegans and discuss not only the pros and cons of being vegan but also learn the nitty gritty on things like where to get food, and where to eat. If nothing else, it's somewhere to go where nobody will question your decision to stop eating animal products!
  2. Visit the Vegan Society's Guide to Vegan Living, which is packed full of useful practical advice for those making the change. 
  3. Look at our list of veggie and vegan groceries, with particular reference to Unicorn in Chorlton-cum-Hardy, south Manchester, and V-Revolution, in central Manchester – both these places sell exclusively vegan food. On the Eighth Day on Oxford Road also has a great range of vegan stuff.
  4. Take a look at your nearest Holland and Barrett, particularly if it has a fridge. Amongst other things, H&B usually stock Frys and Redwoods ready-made foods, all of which are 100% vegan.
  5. Look at our list of veggie and vegan eateries, with particular reference to Earth café in central Manchester, V-Revolution on Oldham Street in central Manchester, Go! Falafel in Rusholme and central Manchester, TeaTime Collective in Hulme, The Globe in Glossop, and Dandelion and Burdock restaurant near Hebden Bridge – ALL of which run 100% vegan kitchens!
  6. But don't ignore the other veggie places, many of which have superb vegan options, such as Cafe Mod and Eighth Day café, both of which are on Oxford Road near the university campus.
