There is a fantastic one-stop vegan shop in Rome with an enormous selection of vegan foods, products, sandwiches, and more! It's a must-see.

Located in a large open market called Mercato Testaccio, at Stall Number 83, is Vegan Store.


Barbara, the owner of this awesome shop, is an ethical vegan, as well as extremely knowledgeable, vibrantly passionate, and positively overflowing with energy!

the clash

Her spark is quite a necessity in the market, since the store is not only in a building that used to be a slaughterhouse, but also surrounded by butchers and meats.


Not the neighborly kind either, but the kind that like to harass and threaten by leaving her cruel notes and dead animals. (Boo, mean people!)


But, persist, she does! And thank goodness, because this little shop is an utter vegan heaven!

Find special goodies like burgers, hot dogs, tuna, roasts, whipped cream, pudding, mayonnaise, parmesan, yogurt, egg replacers, and toothpastes, soaps, shampoos, and henna hair dye. 


And, no palm oil!

There's a selection of juices, plus tons of treats and desserts like candies, cookies and cakes.


There's also a deli section where she serves fresh, custom made sandwiches using delicious Italian-made meats and cheeses that she's happy to slice up and even let you sample for free!


Good luck choosing one; they're all amazing. The Black Pepper Tuscan cheese is to die for!
