What it is: 
A well-stocked vegan-only shop in Seattle’s lively University District

Why we love it: 
No need to scrutinize labels for ingredients sourced from animals: everything is guaranteed vegan, from baking mixes, marshmallows, and haggis, to cookbooks, and nail polish. Popular items include ready-to-eat sandwiches, wraps, and subs from nearby Wayward Vegan Café.

Bonus: 
A generous donation to Pigs Peace Sanctuary in Stanwood, Wash., allowed the sanctuary to open Vegan Haven in 2005; a 2013 expansion doubled the store’s size. Today, Vegan Haven’s profits support the nearly 200 animals rescued by the sanctuary. “Vegan Haven is mostly staffed by dedicated volunteers who are here to share knowledge,” says Demarie Werth, who’s been managing the store since 2013. Besides the store’s many regulars, visitors to Seattle from all over the globe make a point of stopping by.
