Multiple attempts to contact the Raymond James Stadium, home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, to find out what vegan options are available at the stadium have so far not been responded to.
We’ll keep reaching out, but in the meantime we do have the policies you need to know if you’re thinking about just bringing your own food to the stadium.
We also have two suggestions for two vegan-friendly locations where you can grab some food before or after the game (or both! We’re not here to judge!).
Vegan Options at Raymond James Stadium
We are not aware of any vegan options at Raymond James Stadium at this time. It doesn’t mean they may not exist, we just haven’t been able to confirm with anyone at the stadium what (and where) they are.
We’ll keep trying to reach out to get this info and will update here as soon as we get it.
If you know something we don’t that can help improve this guide, please reach out to us and let us know!
Can I Bring Food Into Raymond James Stadium?

Vegan Options Near Raymond James Stadium
We took a look around the stadium to find some vegan-friendly restaurants that would be a good spot to get a bite to eat before or after the game. This is something we always do when we go to games and we thought we’d share what we found with you guys. This is by no means a complete list, just a couple spots that caught our attention.
Farmacy Vegan Kitchen + Bakery
Located less than a 10 minute drive southeast of the stadium is the Farmacy Vegan Kitchen + Bakery. This is really cool and unique spot that not only serves up everything from Donuts to Philly Cheese Steaks, they also have grab-n-go meals and a selection of groceries.
We’ve ate at and reviewed A LOT of vegan restaurants and they have some of the best looking food we’ve ever seen. Farmacy is on the top of our bucket list next time we’re in Tampa, whether it’s at a Bucs game or not.
Yes, we are fully aware that Panera Bread is not a local vegan restaurant. However, what makes this location worth checking out is it’s location. It’s about two blocks from the stadium. In fact, depending on where you’re parked you may be closer to this Panera Bread than the stadium.
So, if you’re looking for some good vegan options before a noon kickoff (coffee and a bagel anyone?), or while you wait for traffic to clear out – this Panera Bread could be a great choice.
