TASTE News Service, September 29, 2020 - With October 1 being World Vegetarian Day and November 1 being World Vegan Day, and with synthetic meat products receiving a sales bump due to COVID-19 meat shortages, the personal-finance website WalletHub has released its report on 2020's Best Cities for Vegans & Vegetarians, as well as accompanying videos.

To determine the best and cheapest places for following a plant-based diet, WalletHub compared the 100 largest cities across 16 key indicators of vegan- and vegetarian-friendliness. The data set ranges from the share of restaurants serving meatless options to the cost of groceries for vegetarians to salad shops per capita.
