If you’re in the mood for some ballpark grub, then Miami Marlins tickets make way for a complete culinary experience. However, if you’re a vegan, you have to know where to look. Planning your vegan munchies at Marlins Park is a bit tricky. Many of the food stands and concessions are meat-friendly. However, look closely, and you’ll find something on almost every menu in and around the park. Check out these four vegan options the next time you’re at a Miami Marlins game.
1. Veggie Burger

A veggie burger is an obvious choice for a vegan on-the-go. It’s the perfect griller item to help get your head in the game. In addition, you can score one alongside your carnivorous friends. Burger 305 located inside Marlins Park offers a veggie burger, but it’s only available in section 19. Pair it with a side of greasy animal-fat-free fries and you have a complete ballpark meal.
2. Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich

A peanut butter and jelly sandwich is a classic way to satisfy vegan cravings. If you aren’t shy about ordering off the kid’s menu, then choose a Little Marlins Kids Meal from FanFeast, located in section 30. Pick the peanut butter and jelly sandwich instead of the hot dog. The meal also comes with applesauce and juice. FanFeast also offers a soft pretzel for those who need a bit more than a kid’s meal to stay satisfied.
3. Cold Pressed Juices and Smoothies

Super fresh or raw items are rare when it comes to ballpark cuisine. Yet, Marlins Park offers an exceptional alternative to the traditional fanfare. Guests can actually order cold pressed juices and fresh squeezed juices, as well as blended smoothies from Diamond Juice located right inside Marlins Park in section 19. Vegan fans will find exotic combinations that include cucumber, kale, and more. Smoothie combos include peanut butter and banana, strawberry and banana, and even mango mixes.

If you’re looking for something with a little more flare, consider venturing just outside the park. A short seven-minute drive will open up a world of vegan food at Govinda’s Garden. Among the many menu items geared toward the vegan and vegetarian lifestyle, Govinda’s offers a quesadilla. It’s true, a quesadilla hardly sounds like vegan fare, but Govinda’s features a decadent vegan cheese add-on that pairs with the soy chicken or tofu spinach options.
In addition, everything on the menu is vegan-friendly, so if you can’t satisfy your cravings at Marlins Park, you’ll surely find everything you want a Govinda’s before or after the game.
