Best Vegan Food Stores in Johannesburg

Vegan restaurants are one thing but vegan food stores is a different ball game all together. Here’s our favourite shops to get our pantries stuffed with.


Fresh Earth Food Store

The best vegan-friendly spot to get your smoothy on, do your pantry shopping and mingle with like-minded folks would be Fresh Earth Food Store in Emmarentia. From coconut oil to almond flour and everything in between, it’s at this pretty little shop. Fresh Earth also stocks banting friendly products as well as antioxidants, detox items and general foodstuffs such as vegan cheese and tofu.


Connected to the Leafy Greens Cafe in Muldersdrift, Antonia’s is jam-packed with everything fresh and wonderful. Pickled jalapeños, sunflower seeds and everything in between can be found at Antonia’s. The shops concentrates on raw vegan products. It must be noted that the shop is not strictly vegan as it sells honey farmed at Leafy Greens.

Fruit & Roots

As natural and organic as they come, Fruits & Roots is your one stop health shop run and owned by vegans. The shop is firm supporters of Animal Defenders International as well as Wildlife Works. It’s good to know that there’s a place out there that uses some of its profits to make positive change the world over. Fruits & Roots also runs a homeopathy section for those looking for alternative ways and means to treat certain ailments. Other than that they serve exactly what their name states: fruits and roots… and veggies… and everything else one would except from a vegan food shop.
