Where to eat vegan, Martinsburg, WV: Good Natured Market and Vegetarian Cafe

Share |


I spent a day in Martinsburg, W.Va., recently and Rachel M. introduced me to Martinsburg's well kept secret: Good Natured Market and Vegetarian Cafe. I went to college not 15 minutes from this place and never knew it existed. They serve up vegetarian, vegan and gluten free meals and serve as a venue for ecological films and music.

Every day they have a new veggie burger (check for eggs though!), 3 soups, and a little chalkboard full of sandwich and entree specials. Of all the choices I decided to go for the Peanut Noodle Bowl because as Isa pointed out, bowls are where it's at for us vegans. I was not disappointed. A heaping bowl of noods, tomatoes, sprouts, sugar peas, green, and black sesame seeds with a peanuty sauce to top it off was paired with their signature salad and the vegan tahini Goddess dressing.

Things I would like to try in the future: the Toasted Veggie Stack -- which has the strange but delicious sounding combination of fried onions and mango (sub vegan cheese of course) and I also had my eye on the Sweetest Potato Falafel.

They even have a store up front that sells everything from plastic bag dryers (I got one so now I don't have to hang them all over the kitchen) to tempeh.
