Food Fight! Opening Second All-Vegan Grocery in Portland
Portland’s popular Food Fight! all-vegan grocery store is expanding to include a second location this fall. The original store, which opened up in 2003, is found in the vegan “mini mall,” next to cruelty-free haunts Sweetpea Baking Co., Herbivore Clothing, and Scapegoat Tattoo Co. The new spot will open up at 11155 NE Halsey, a bit farther east.
Founders Emiko Badillo and Chad Miller hope to open the new store’s doors in October of this year. They also say a coffe shop will be featured in the same building, named Jet Black Coffee Company. Earlier this year there were some ruffled feathers about the German-based Veganz supermarket popping up nearby, but worry seems to have waned about its potential to push out the longstanding and beloved Food Fight! grocery. Badillo and Miller state:
“We’re super excited to have this opportunity, and it’s been a long road to get there.”
