Vegan online store: grocery store listings
It’s easy to buy vegan food online these days, saving yourself a trek to the nearest Whole Foods (or saving you if you don’t have a Whole Foods nearby).
Below you’ll find a list of vegan shops online. Almost every vegan store now ships internationally, but I have noted which online vegan stores are based in the UK or Europe (if unmarked, it’s in the US). As well as food, some sell cleaning products, makeup and shoes, although I have separate listings for vegan shoe shops and clothing stores below.
Thrive Market is a members-only online store that claims Thrive members get 25-50% off retail prices. Looking for the best online shop for vegan food? It’s not an entirely vegan food online shop, but many of the products are vegan, as it focuses on organic and healthy food products.
Membership is $59.95 a year (or you can choose a monthly membership but you save a lot by buying annually). They offer a free 30-day trial (it will charge your card if you don’t cancel before the end of the trial). To decide if it’s worth the membership fee for you, you need to work out how much you and your family buy of the products they sell (think pantry items like pasta, coconut oil and non-dairy milk). Of course, you can factor in how much it costs you to go to the grocery store (in gas or in public transport fares) and the time.
A lot of people who use Thrive Market say while it doesn’t necessarily save them a ton of money upfront, it does save them a lot of time and as the saying goes, time is money. After all, being short on time is often a motivator for buying vegan groceries online. So if you want to save time, check out Thrive Market.
Vegancuts started out as a vegan subscription box company, but has since expanded to sell much more through its vegan shop online, the marketplace. They are one of the most famous and best vegan online stores. Since they specialise in subscriptions boxes, you can be sure they are the perfect place to buy vegan snacks online.
For the new vegan, their subscription boxes are a great way to test out different vegan brands and seeing which ones you like.
Through their online vegan store, they sell vegan grocery items, beauty products and lifestyle goods. All the vegan products have gone through rigorous testing by the Vegancuts experts to ensure that the ingredients and manufacturing process are vegan and cruelty-free, but also that the product is worthy of a place in your life.
Looking to buy vegan online? Vegan Essentials is a longstanding online vegan supermarket.

The Vegan Kind started its life as a vegan lifestyle box in the UK, but is now an online vegan supermarket. In addition to its vegan food store, which sells pretty much everything you could think of, from vegan fish to vegan beer and wine, it also has a health and beauty section, clothing and bags, books and vegan dog food.

It's 100% vegan and as well as being a vegan grocery store online, they sell shoes, household goods, pet products, health & beauty and more. Here, you can order everything from vegan truffles to salted caramel marshmallow puffs, vegan, organic biscuits, vegan burgers, hand soap, boots and much more.
big green smile
Big Green Smile is a little different to the others on this list -- it's not a vegan online grocery store. Instead, it specialises in cleaning, beauty and baby products. It's not all vegan but it has an entire vegan section on their site, accessed through the menu, which is easy to navigate. It's an excellent place to buy cleaning and beauty products, especially some harder-to-find and zero waste cleaning solutions (like bicarbonate of soda in cardboard packaging). They have online stores in the UK, France, Germany and the Netherlands.

Vegan shoes & bags
It can be tricky finding vegan shoes in your local mall, especially if they're not well-labeled. I remember standing in the shoe section many times growing up, with my dad, trying to work out whether a shoe was made out of leather or not. Salespeople sometimes know but often don't. If you're looking for sneakers, find my guide to vegan sneakers here and for vegan boots, find my guide here.
Thankfully, it's easy to buy vegan shoes online these days! There are a number of vegan stores online dedicated to vegan shoes -- find a list below.
