Cincinnati Reds Vegan

We have a couple of lingering questions for the Great American Ballpark’s vegan options in the 2024 season. The thoroughness of our updates are pretty good though and will help you when planning for the game or if you are already there.

We also looked up policies that you want to be aware of if you’re thinking about taking your own food into the stadium–it includes their bag policies as well.

Finally, we took a look around the ballpark to try to find a couple of good spots to get some vegan eats before or after the game if you prefer to do that.

Vegan Options Near Great American Ballpark

This is by no means an all-inclusive list. It’s just a couple of suggestions of places we found close to the park where you can meet up with friends or family to grab a bite to eat before or after the game.

Harmony Plant Fare | NYC Inspired Vegan Deli

1801 Race St UNIT 105, Cincinnati, OH 45202

Located just a mile and a half north of the ballpark is Harmony Plant Fare. It’s an NYC Inspired Vegan Deli where you can pick vegan meats and cheeses along with some amazing looking sandwiches.

We’ve never been here ourselves, but they carry a 4.9 star rating with over 100 reviews on Google. (You know how hard that is to do!?!)

There are also a couple of other spots, Essen Kitchen and Herban Vegans, located about a block away from Harmony Plant Fare. Definitely an area worth checking out.

Yard HouseOpens in a new tab.

95 E Freedom Way, Cincinnati, OH 45202

This would be a good restaurant & bar for vegans and non-vegans. Yard House offers an entire Gardein section of the menu. We suggest cross-referencing their menu with our Yard House vegan guide so you know what to order and how.

This Yard House location is a block away from the stadium making it really convenient for a before or after the game meet-up.
