Baseball games might evoke images of sipping on lawnmower beers while scarfing down hot dogs or burgers – but thankfully, gone are the days when peanuts and Cracker Jacks were the only veg-friendly options. Thanks largely to the folks over at foodservice company Aramark, vegan and vegetarian dishes abound at baseball stadiums all over the country.
Even in regions not traditionally associated with vegetarian cuisine, you can now find plenty of options that are free of meat. In fact, Kansas City, Missouri, and Arlington, Texas happen to be two of the best ballparks in the country for those of us who don’t eat anything that comes from an animal.
Whether your diet is strictly plant-based or you just enjoy trying new things, there are plenty of delicious veg-friendly ballpark foods to check out this summer. Here are the 16 best Major League Baseball stadiums for vegan food:
Wrigley Field | Chicago
The Sloppy Jane ⚾️ || a VEGAN tempeh sloppy joe at Wrigley Field in Chicago!! ❤️⚾️💙 I have been searching for this baby for three years, and finally happened upon her tonight! You can find her at a place called The Diner on the first base side of the stadium. The veggie burger and veggie dog are apparently not vegan, only vegetarian, so this is one of the best options. It was tasty, too! I even got a free upgrade from chips to crinkle cut fries cause the girl taking my order was awesome! 💁🏼🍟
Animal-free eats at the Cubs’ stadium include veggie burgers, veggie dogs, and the Sloppy Jane – a tasty vegan version of the Sloppy Joe. Vegan protein bars, veggie wraps and hummus-and-vegetable cups are also available.
