If you want to cook vegan Thanksgiving on your own, there are plenty of groceries in town which have stocked up on vegan Thanksgiving options. Aside from Whole Foods, you can grab food at Natural Grocer’s, Trader Joe’s (they’ve got a breaded “turkey-less” stuffed roast with gravy), Smith’s, Vons and Albertson’s. However, products vary at every shop, so call to make sure before you go. You can get creative with the sides, but if you’re looking for a main course, your best bet is Gardein or Field Roast’s options.
