Best Vegan Grocery Store

I go to Whole Foods, but it's always crowded and I end up spending a ton of time there because it's so huge. I'm looking for the best alternative where I can find vegan staples at a reasonable price. (Bonus if it's on the UWS)

    Fairway (on broadway between 74th and 75th) is probably the best grocery store in the world. amazing selection and truly unbelievable prices. upstairs is the organic/vegan friendly stuff. i grew up right around the corner from this fairway and it served me well when i decided to become vegan in high school. now i live in brooklyn and go to the one in red hook. hope this helps.

      Fairway is a great choice. While not on the UWS, there's Integral Yoga on 13th Street. While not 100% vegan, they are 100% vegetarian.

        While I now live in L.A., I'm a native New Yorker and UWS dweller.
        I recommend Gary Null's Whole Foods at 89th and Broadway.
        If it's as good as it used to be, it would be a nice alternative to the giant whole foods at the Time Warner center.

        2421 Broadway
        New York, NY 10024
        Cross Streets: (at 89th St.)

        Not on the UWS, but the Park Slope Food Coop is the best for vegan staples and organic veggies, and the prices are amazing.
