Asheville, North Carolina continues to live up to it’s title of Best Vegetarian-Friendly Small City. Asheville is a vegetarian, gluten free and vegan diner’s dream.

Only in Asheville. Along the way you will also go by Greenlife Grocery store which features everything from “simple vegetarian to “raw” cuisine in a mostly local food approach. And this is just the Merrimon Shuffle. You will find many more food co-ops, grocers and other restaurants that fulfill the needs of any dining desires.
