Baseball season is in full swing, which means fans are looking for the best vegan stadium food they can find—and PETA’s here to help. These stadiums go beyond peanuts and Cracker Jack (which we love, too, of course). Many are partnering with brands such as Beyond Meat and Field Roast to give baseball fans a classic game-day experience while others are stepping it up with vegan nacho cheese, soft serve, and other items.
So don’t strike out for animals—choose vegan options at the ballpark and spare countless cows, pigs, and other animals, who don’t want to be stuffed between buns. And be sure to pick up your “arm barn” gear before heading to the game to show your true fandom.
Globe Life Field (Texas Rangers)
Our 2019 winner is impressing everyone again this year! Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, is a vegan’s dream, with a Beyond Meat partnership and vegan food carts that offer tons of options in sections 16 and 101. Here’s some of what you may find: vegan ballpark nachos with Credo Foods nacho cheese, Beyond Burgers with Field Roast Creamy Original Chao Slices, vegan hot dogs from Field Roast (which can be smothered in Credo Foods nacho cheese and vegan chili), Oatly soft serve (in vanilla, chocolate, or swirl flavors), Beyond Brats, Beyond Meat vegan chicken wraps, MorningStar Farms Veggie Corn Dogs, and vegan chicken salad sandwiches.
Target Field (Minnesota Twins)
Local vegan meat shop The Herbivorous Butcher provides fans in section 129 at the Twins’ home stadium in Minneapolis with flavorful sausages. You can also find vegan Indian chana from Hot Indian Foods in section 120 and vegan burgers in sections 109 and 305. (Be sure to order yours without cheese or mayo, and check whether the bun is vegan.)
Progressive Field (Cleveland Guardians)
Progressive Field, home of the Cleveland Guardians, has quite a few delicious and unique vegan choices—and we love that a lot of them are from local restaurants. Here’s what you can find: vegan grilled cheese sandwiches from Melt Bar and Grilled in section 113, vegan tacos from Barrio in sections 109 and 529, and vegan hot dogs in section 159 along with dairy-free ice cream from Sweet Moses and vegan burgers.
Citi Field (New York Mets)
Citi Field impresses with a dedicated vegan concession stand as well as other options spread throughout the park. Marty’s V Burger offers Beyond Burgers with melted vegan cheddar cheese and special sauce, Shroom Steakhouse Burgers with melted vegan mozzarella and sautéed mushrooms, Beyond Meat bratwursts, and chicken sandwiches. Likewise, the Vegan City stand offers nachos with vegan cheese, Beyond Burgers with vegan cheese, Beyond Sausage with peppers, and Dole Whip sundaes and ice cream floats in pineapple or strawberry flavors.
Dodger Stadium (Los Angeles Dodgers)
Dodger Stadium offers its own vegan version of the famous Dodger Dog, in addition to citrus-marinated tempeh nachos with pico de gallo, black beans, and mashed avocado on crispy tortilla chips and Beyond Sausage Brats topped with grilled peppers and onions.
Fenway Park (Boston Red Sox)
Fenway Park has Beyond Burgers, Beyond Sausages, tempeh tacos, tempeh nachos with vegan cheese, and burrito bowls.
Chase Field (Arizona Diamondbacks)
The Diamondbacks’ home field in Phoenix serves up Tex-Mex–inspired favorites and flavorful, healthy vegan Mediterranean chicken wraps with Gardein vegan chicken, hummus, greens, cucumbers, and olive tapenade.
Oracle Park (San Francisco Giants)
Giants fans can load up on Field Roast franks and burgers, Super Duper vegan burgers, vegan tacos and burritos, loaded nachos with LOCA brand vegan nacho cheese, and more.
Wrigley Field (Chicago Cubs)
Fans can get Beyond Brats, Beyond Burgers (with a brioche bun and no cheese or special sauce to make it vegan), spicy tofu tacos, and more.
Kauffman Stadium (Kansas City Royals)
Kansas City, Missouri, is known for its barbecues, so we love to see some vegan options at Kauffman Stadium like Beyond Meat brats and burgers as well as vegan coleslaw, which you can find at 203 Marketplace, Diamond Club, Rivals, and Craft & Draft.
In addition, American Family Field, Busch Stadium, Citizens Bank Park, Comerica Park, Coors Field, Great American Ball Park, Guaranteed Rate Field, LoanDepot Park, Minute Maid Park, Nationals Park, PNC Park, RingCentral Coliseum, T-Mobile Park, Tropicana Field, Truist Park, and Yankee Stadium all have at least a vegan burger, hotdog, or other entrée.
However, Angel Stadium, Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Petco Park, and Rogers Centre reportedly have very few, if any, vegan options.
Note: Menu offerings are subject to change and availability. Be sure to check at the concession stands for the most up-to-date listings.
What to Do if Your Favorite Ballpark Didn’t Make the Cut
If you’d like to see the vegan menu at your team’s stadium be expanded, speak up and tell the concessionaires to play ball.
