It's All Natural sign

It’s All Natural is the only totally exclusively vegan and vegetarian market in Northeast Columbus (Gahanna just off of Morse Rd in the Cherry Bottom Shopping Center). They focus on vegan, organic, locally made, non-GMO foods and offer many kosher, gluten-free, sugar-free and tree-nut free options such as peanut-free peanut butter. They are also currently phasing out all non-vegan items so there are several items on sale to move them out if you want to get some good deals on honey or buttermilk pancake mix.
   When you want something new on the vegan market, this is the place that has it first.
   Vegan Egg Alternatives: Want to try the latest algae-based vegan egg replacer mixes by Follow Your Heart, or the chia and chic pea egg replacer by Neat, or The Vegg nutritional yeast and rice milk-based French Toast Kit or Scrambled eggs mix, or the Orgran Gluten-Free egg replacer or the seasoning spice packs for those who still prefer tofu; it’s all available at It’s All Natural.
   Vegan Dairy alternatives: Quick, easy and delicious vegan and gluten-free Broccoli and Cheddar Soup? Check. A variety of vegan milks, dried or canned creams, yogurts and frozen ice-creams are available. Making fudge or other things for the holidays? Yes, they even have a vegan (coconut-based) condensed milk. Creamy Alfredo Sauce? Check. Avellana’s handcrafted vegan Hazelnut Parmesan? Check. Avellana’s Smoky, sharp, hard, hemp and hazelnut cheese in curry and Italian herb flavors? Check. DF Maven’s Mint Cookie almond-based ice cream bar or Key Lime Cream coconut-based ice cream bars are here. Many vegan butters exist here for your choosing. Yes, you can get Follow Your Heart Provolone, even in snack sizes for lunch and this stuff is so good you can eat it straight from the package. Vegan cheese alternatives have come a long way in a short time. Chao cheeses are also available. Missing Velveeta cheese? Try the Vegan Veeta.
   Vegan meat alternatives: Vegan Ham? Check. They have at least six varieties of vegan bacon in different forms, from salad topper bits to actual strips in the refrigerated section. Try the vegan pulled pork in various forms and contents from the whole foods version using “jack fruit,” to gluten or soy based versions. Missing that bacon fat for beans or other dishes? 100 percent animal friendly magic vegan bacon grease exists and can be had there. BBQ Ribs? Check. Stuffed Pork Chops? Check (Frozen prepared foods). Vegan Turkey? Several. There is even one that is even shaped like a conventional bird—while this creeps out most vegans, but for those who want to have the traditional appearance, there is something for everyone. Vegan Chicken? Several. Beyond Meat’s Southwestern and Lightly seasoned varieties. Neat has a new Beef burger mix. If you haven’t tried the Match brand of prepared frozen foods, it is a gourmet, high-end variety of vegan prepared foods and their crab cakes are scrumptious, as are the stuffed mushroom burgers, ground breaded chicken, ground pork and ground beef. There is a whole new line of dried good mixes with a longer shelf life and less space and energy consumption that you can prepare at home by simply adding wet ingredients to that do not require refrigeration. They would make a great Christmas for all the “prepper”/survivalist types out there who prefer not to be part of the 30 million gun-toting crowd that would extinguish the existing wildlife (and who knows how many humans) in the country in a mere 13 days should we have a bona fide SHTF scenario.
   Vegan Sea-life alternatives: Crab cakes? Check. Shrimp? Check. Canned Tuna? Check. Several Asian style mock fish alternatives are also available in the frozen sections. Sophie’s Breaded Vegan Shrimp? Check. It is also gluten and soy free, made from an Asian root vegetable with some seaweed.
   Vegan Marshmallows, Vegan Gelatin and Vegan Honey (Bee Free (apple-based) and Suzanne’s Specialties (rice-based and my personal favorite) sweet sauces and spreads. If you love Nutella, try the natural, sugar and dairy free alternative, Nuti-Light.
   There are a myriad of delicious dessert options and prepared savory foods you will just have to go there and see for yourself.
