TD Garden Vegan Options 2021 (Boston Celtics)

Boston Celtics Vegan

Not a ton of vegan options at TD Garden, but there are a few items that will keep you from just having to get a ‘sugar packet or two’.

In addition to the vegan options in the Garden, we also gathered the policies you’ll want to know if you want to try to bring your own food to the game. And finally, we researched around the arena to find a couple good vegan-friendly spots that you can check out before or after the game.

We’re always looking to improve our guides and keep them as up-to-date as possible, so if you know something we don’t – please reach out and let us know!


Vegan Options at TD Garden


As of now, per the TD Garden website, the only vegan-friendly option they mention under Dietary Restrictions on their Concessions Page is a Soft Pretzel. 

  • Soft Pretzel

When we reached out to TD Garden, they provided us with a few additional options:

Big Bad Burger Stands (Loge and Balcony)

  • Double Veggie Burger

MRKT Locations

  • Various Vegan Snack Options (unfortunately we couldn’t get anything specific)

Finally, we were told “other options will be available the day-of”. It may be worth swinging by Customer Service (who we spoke with) the day of the game to see if any special gameday options are available.

Thinking about bringing your own food to the game? Here are some policies at TD Garden that you want to be aware of. We pulled these directly from the TD Garden A to Z Guide.

Bag Policy (as of 9/18/21)

To uphold health and safety protocols, minimize contact, and ensure a more efficient entry process, TD Garden strongly discourages guests from bringing bags. 

If guests chose to bring a bag, its dimensions must be under 14”x14”x6”.  Per NBA/NHL security policies, all bags entering TD Garden will be x-ray screened and inspected, including clear bags and ProShop powered by ’47 bags. Guests with bags will be directed to designated x-ray screening and inspection lines at each entrance gate. Medical and diaper bags will be permitted but will be screened at designated x-ray screening gates. 

Patrons with prohibited items (including but not limited to large backpacks, coolers or hard-sided bags of any kind) will be turned away will not be permitted entry to the arena. TD Garden does not provide on-site storage. Guests are asked to plan accordingly and allow for extra time when arriving to TD Garden.

Exceptions to this bag policy may be made for extenuating circumstances such as medical needs and diaper bags. Please contact TD Garden’s Guest Experience team if you require additional information or guidance – [email protected] or 617-624-1331.

Food and Beverage (as of 9/18/21)

Guests may not bring outside food and/or beverage items into the arena at any time. Guests must dispose of the unauthorized items prior to entrance into the arena. TD Garden will not check-in or store any food or beverage items.

Guests with specific/special dietary needs due to medical conditions or religious requirements should contact TD Garden at 617-624-1331 or via email at [email protected].


Vegan Options Near TD Garden


We did some research looking around the garden to try to find a couple good spots to grab a bite to eat before or after the game. This is by no means a comprehensive list, just a few places that caught our attention.

Cocobeet

100 City Hall Plaza, Boston, MA 02108

Cocobeet is located less than a mile south of the arena. It’s a grab-n-go location where you can pickup a salad, cold-pressed juices and smoothies. If you’re on the way to the arena and need something quick, this is a great place to stop and get something really healthy to get you through the game.

Terramia Ristorante

98 Salem St, Boston, MA 02113

Located even closer to TD Gardens (about a half mile) is a vegetarian/vegan spot called Terramia Ristorante. They serve up authentic Italian fare with a plant based twist. On their menu you can find everything from Polpette to Gnocchi Ai Funghi.

Reviews of the place are amazing and people seem to really love the ravioli so keep that in mind if you get a chance to check this restaurant out.
