Welcome to Knox Vegan!

Welcome to Knox Vegan! I’m so happy you’re here.

The site is definitely a work in progress, but it’s finally a functional place for vegans, vegetarians, veg-loving omnivores, friends and family of vegans, and people traveling through our beautiful city to find vegan and cruelty-free options in Knoxville, Tennessee.

For years, people have been saying to me, “Wow, it must be hard to find vegan food in Knoxville! Is there anywhere you can go out to eat?” Absolutely! I haven’t had a difficult time at all; in fact, I think this is a great city to be vegan, and I plan on proving it!

Better yet, I plan on recruiting other Knoxvillians to help me prove it. Every page and post is meant to be commented on, discussed, and added to as new information becomes available, and I’m already active on social media – find Knox Vegan on Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest!

You can also subscribe to receive updates in the sidebar, or contact me if you want to get involved, for example by contributing your favorite vegan dishes at Knoxville’s restaurants. 

I can’t wait to hear from you!
