For vegan dining at a ballgame, it's tough to beat Target Field

It's not just about $1 Dome Dogs at the ballpark anymore.

Some of us like to eat like a pig when we go to the ballgame. But what if you don't eat pigs – or anything made from animals?

Well, then Target Field in Minneapolis is one of the best places in America to see a game, according to PETA.

The group's new list of the 10 most vegan-friendly ballparks in Major League Baseball puts the home of the Twins at number two.

What they like

A similar list from PETA two years ago made no mention of Target Field. What's the difference this time around? The biggest change is the arrival of the Herbivorous Butcher.

The sibling-owned meatless butcher shop has been gaining popularity over the last few years, using a Kickstarter campaign to expand from farmer's market appearances to a brick-and-mortar store in northeast Minneapolis.

For 2017, the Herbivorous Butcher opened a cart at Target Field. They sell vegan Sriracha brats and Italian sausages next to a kosher hot dog stand in section 129 (they use separate grills).

While the meatless sausages get top billing in PETA's Target Field rundown, they also mention the aloo gobi (a potato and cauliflower dish) served up by Hot Indian Foods.

More vegan options than ever

Vegan offerings at stadiums are expanding quickly. Ballpark Digest notes it was not very long ago when just serving a veggie dog at your ballpark was enough to get recognition from vegan diners.

This year PETA's list was topped by Globe Life Ballpark in Arlington, Texas. The Vegan Cart there includes not only meatless dogs, but burgers, wraps, chili, tamales, nachos with dairy-free cheese, and even Texas BBQ meat-free jerky.

There's a full list of the vegetarian offerings at Target Field here.
