OK, I'm lucky to be close enough to drop by regularly, but I love these people. Food Fight is an attitude, note the exclamation point. This store is about providing vegan alternatives so you can stop buying animal derived products. They are trying to show the public how easy it is to do that by putting everything in one place. Sometimes the prices are slightly higher than the big stores, but it's because they don't get the big volume price breaks. I honor that and try to buy those items from them whenever I can, because they don't represent a sellout compromise to carry stuff that vegans consider unethical just to make money.

Their current store is a real effort at trying to be the best they can be, with fresh fruit and veggies and quite an array of staples and munchies. It's easy to be an informed shopper there and choose healthy options, but it's also possible to load up on snacks when that's what you want. Yes, I want a vegan twinkie as a self reward once in a while.

Whatever you buy at Food Fight! is a vote for a better future for animals and the planet. I'm never sorry to shop there and support the food sources and employees making a living off goods and services that I can really believe in, because I know the owners and I know that their motivation is to help change the world.

Go there or go to their website and give them a try.

Cool place with lots of vegan items that aren't normally carried in other stores. Sometimes the staff are not the friendliest.

I love this place, they have so many vegan foods, candy and supplies that you can't find anywhere else. To bad they're not in Salt Lake.

I think I have died and gone to vegan heaven. Any place that has one thing of vegan chocolate blows me away but this place had so many! AND THEY HAD TWINKIES. Enough said.

What an amazing experience! All vegans know what it is like to wander the aisles of Whole Foods searching for the 15% of their items that meet our dietary needs. Food Fight has it all under one roof. Yes, it is a smallish store. Imagine a big 7-11. It is small but just about every cool vegan food product sits on the shelves.

Who Isn't Into An All Vegan Grocery Store?
This Place Is Awesome, Don't Even Have To Read A Label Here, What A Relief It Seems (Unless You Got Any Allergies). Cheap Vegan Soap, Bomb Vegan Cheeses, Treats, Fucking Vegan Sour Worms, And Vegan Condoms. Some Shit, Come Here If Your Around.

I have to go here every time I visit Portland. Even though it's a small place there's a great selection and the staff is (pretty much) always friendly.

Great selection, I just wish it was closer to my house.

Food Fight is a wonderful market containing some very unique items both food and otherwise. We always stock up on our visits there and just wish such a neat market was available in our hometown.

I just visited Food Fight! at their new location and I was very happy! They do have a number of cool vegan treats like vegan honey, gummy bears, jerky, nougat (addictive!), smores (they are SO good!), coconut chocolate bars, the new vegan cream, and fancy cheeses. I was pretty impressed.

They also had some things that you'd find at other stores - lip balm, frozen entrees, shampoo, etc. -- but it seems way nicer to get it here and not have to look at labels.

And I liked the fact that they carried bread, soy milk, fruits, and veggies (which were all organic, by the way). It gave me an excuse to go there (um, I'm just going to get the basics), and then of course, I got a bunch of sweets! I can't wait for Sweetpea to open too!

Great little store! They need to branch out and open ALOt MORE! despite the below comment about "anti-religion" views by the owner. I did not even notice, and hey so what, I have been in many stores that are "pro-religion" and found the obvious display disgusting but...this comment just makes me want to go back..anti religion?? FINALLY!

They have a great selection of products, but as mentioned before, you can find most of them elsewhere. However, they have some really hard to find items like Scheese cheese and vegetarian haggis. They have a lot of items you can find at ANY store, like bread and soy milk, but that also makes it convenient to get everything all in one stop.

My one complaint about the store is that they really profess the political and anti-religious views of the owners which is unrelated to the store's mission and is off-putting to customeres who don't agree with them.

They may not have the largest selection but I was shocked at the low prices on many items. I love how they are supportive of the community in which they are located and the community they represent. Aside from groceries, I love finding random compilation Cd's/documentaries as well as zines/DIY/cookbooks you couldn't easily find elsewhere. MUAH to the girl who made the cupcakes I indulged in most of this past summer. From fake meats, soy cheese, vegan chocolate and alternative pet food - it has everything you could expect from a hole in the wall vegan grocery store.

Holy crap. A VEGAN GROCERY STORE! What more can you ask for! This little store is tucked away on the ground floor of a little hideaway mall in SE Portland (Right Behind Kelga Kafe). It might be Portland's best kept secret if so many people (nationally) didn't know about it.

If you're vegan, you'll enjoy the fact that you can walk right in and not have to read a single label. Wooo Hooo!

Food Fight! also has the much coveted Vegan Marshmallows, Vegan Haggis (I don't know why in the world anyone would want that... but it's there if you do) as well as a nice selection of Vegan goodies.

Food Fight! is a one of a kind, which is too bad, It would be great if there were more vegan grocers out there. But if you're not in Portland, never fear, they've launched online ordering so you can get those Vegan goodies no matter where you are.

These kids (and dog) had a mission. They have accomplished that mission and now continue to go ABCD (above & beyond the call of duty).

1. Independently owned & operated vegan convenience mart.

2. Two choices: real life store front (7 days a week) or online ordering @ www.foodfightgrocery.com.

3. Standards such as Tofurky slices, mayos, noodles, chips, ice creams, vitamins, burgers, dogs, etc.. Stuff other places don't seem to have, such as; veggie steam buns, vegan lamb, Peanut Butter Tings, marzipan and wacky stuff like FishHam, Ham Tube, Haggis, garlic frosting (Garlic Zing!). A nice mixure of vegan-on-accident and "healthy" organic style snacks.

4. You can even subscribe, through FoodFight!, to an Organic Produce CSA to get "real food" along with your sweets and meats. Every week you'll get your bag of carrots, kale, and onions, then pick up your Ritter Sport, Tings, and Steam buns.

5. They aren't trying to please everyone, Wild Seasons, New Foods, and Whole Oats already try to do that. FoodFight! is trying to please themselves and other awesome like-minded people.

Not for the vegan who is particularly health-conscious, Food Fight does have a plethora of munchies. Vegan marshmallows are sold here.
