Tropicana Field Vegan Options 2022 (Tampa Bay Rays)

Tampa Bay Rays Vegan

The vegan options at Tropicana Field are pretty decent. You can find an Impossible Burger, Rice Bowl and even Plant Based Pockets (hot pocket style). 

 We’ve also researched and noted their policies on bringing food into Tropicana Field, and finally located a couple of good spots for getting something to eat before or after the game.

We hope this guide proves helpful, and in the meantime, we’ll keep working to try to secure more info.

Vegan Options Near Tropicana Field


We did a bit of researching places near Tropicana Field to find a couple of places that are worth checking out if you want to grab a bite to eat before or after the game. This is by no means a comprehensive list, just locations that piqued our interest.

Rays Vegan Soul

953 Central Ave, St. Petersburg, FL 33701

A vegan spot only a couple blocks from the field serving up delicious vegan soul food with ‘Rays’ in the name? What’s not to love?!?

Rays Vegan Soul is just that. Located about two blocks from the stadium, they serve up comfort food favorites like burgers & mac & cheese. Reviews for the place are amazing, especially for the meatloaf and the aforementioned mac & cheese.

Love Food Central

2057 Central Ave, St. Petersburg, FL 33713

Love Food Central is a bit further away, but still only a half-mile from the stadium.

They serve up vegan and gluten-free food including main courses and desserts. People love the food here and rave about everything from the Reuben to the soft serve.

Definitely another spot worth checking out for some pre-game (or post-game) eats.
