Review of Veganz Supermarket in Hamburg!
Finding out that Veganz, Germany’s all-vegan supermarket chain, was making its way over to Portland this year was very exciting news. The demand for plant-based alternatives is increasing, and the idea of a supermarket dedicated to all things vegan sounded almost too good to be true.
While traveling in Germany this year, I knew that no matter what city I spent time in, I would make sure to visit a Veganz location and see it for myself. I planned to buy some treats and get a sneak peek at what Portland can expect. While I of course had my expectations based on visiting various “Vegetarian/Vegan” sections in standard shops or supermarkets, Veganz definitely blew those expectations out of the water!
I decided to visit the one in Hamburg, located on Schützenstraße 21. On the way there, I couldn’t help but notice the abundance of plant-based restaurants and eco-markets along the way. The street alone seemed veg-friendly! I soon found Veganz with the help of some German friends, and the following are my top seven impressions of the supermarket!
