Let's be honest. Fargo is not the most vegan-friendly city. In fact, North Dakota is considered one of the worst US states for vegans.

However, if you know where to look, finding vegan eats in Fargo-Moorhead is not only possible, but can be delicious too.

In this article, we're listing the best places to find vegan food in Fargo, along with a Fargo shopping guide for the best supermarkets to find vegan essentials.

Best Vegan Food in Fargo

1. Wurst Bier Hall

  • Best for: vegan brats and beers
  • Location: Cityscapes Plaza, 630 1st Ave N, Fargo, ND
  • Click for menu

Wurst Bier Hall is one of our favorite vegan-friendly restaurants in Fargo-Moorhead. The German-themed Bier Hall has two locations in the Fargo area, but you'll want to visit the Downtown location where you'll find a separate vegan menu (you might need to ask for this as they don't always hand it out).

On their vegan menu, you'll find brats made from your choice of Field Roast or Beyond sausages, pretzel bites, and vegan sauces. Of course, you can't visit Wurst without getting the famous vegan soft pretzel! If you're looking for something a bit heartier, the Bahn Mi with Field Roast sausage is one of their specialties. This sandwich is served with skinny fries and is sure to fill you up. Sweet potato fries are also available and are a great choice for those looking for something on the lighter side.

Wurst Bier Hall is a great restaurant to go to when you're looking for vegan food options and beer. With plenty of vegan options on their menu, you won't be disappointed.

Bernbaum's is a unique and quirky restaurant located in downtown Fargo. They offer a few vegan options, such as the Vegan Lox's Bagel Plate, Vegan Reuben the Mushroom, Turnip, and Soybean Soup of the Day. The bagels and focaccia are vegan, and our favorite was the vegan Reuben which is served with beets on slices of crunchy bread.

The best time to visit Berbaum's is for breakfast or brunch as their menu is very "brunchy" and they serve up some great local Stumbeanos bottomless coffee too. The restaurant has an old Americana diner feel that adds to its quirkiness. Whether you're looking for a quick bite or a leisurely meal, Bernbaum's is a great vegan option in Fargo.

*Note on JL Beers

Fargo's JL Beers no longer offers their vegan black bean burger. This was replaced in 2022 by a vegetarian burger that contains eggs and dairy. We hope JL brings back its vegan option soon.

Fargo Supermarkets for Vegans

There are vegan options at almost all of Fargo's supermarkets. The issue, however, is there is no one great option for everything. This means, to get the most complete shopping list done, you'll want to visit 2-3 different supermarkets to check all the boxes.

These supermarkets include:

  • Tochi: A small, independent hippy-style specialty grocery shop that is packed with vegan options. This is a great place to shop plastic-free when purchasing grains, beans, and herbs. Highly recommend checking this place out - the vibe alone is worth it.
  • Cashwise: Has a good selection of vegan dairy and egg substitutes in the "healthy" section of the store. Cashwise also has a lot of frozen vegan foods too like pizzas, burgers, and nuggets.
  • Hornbachers: You'll find an entire aisle (almost fully) dedicated to specialty plant-based foods like vegan cheeses, mock meats, and so much more.
  • Natural Grocers: A great store for specialty vegan options that you won't find elsewhere in Fargo. You can get mock meats, vegan cheese, dips, plant-based roasts, and more.
  • Asian and American (A&A) Supermarket: Amazing selection of ethnic foods from Indian, Thai, and Vietnamese. You'll also find fresh produce here like bok choy you won't find anywhere else in Fargo.
  • Target: Has a good selection of vegan options spread out. You can find unique vegan items here like Tattooed Chef Pizzas.
