Whether you’re a Gainesville native, new to the area, or just visiting…Welcome!

On this site, Meatless in Gainesville, you will find lists of vegan, vegetarian, and veg-friendly restaurants, food trucks, grocery stores, produce stands, and farmers’ markets in Gainesville, FL, as well as nearby sanctuaries and festivals.

You will not find any chain restaurants on here. You can find those anywhere. Gainesville has so many wonderful locally-owned restaurants, and most of them have several vegetarian and vegan options. Show our local restaurants some love!
