Maran Vegan is a vegan supermarket with an in-store vegan bistro. Many years ago, Stefan and Josefine Maran opened one of the first organic grocery stores in Vienna, subsequently opened several additional branches, and thereby helped establish organic products as “mainstream” in Vienna. They eventually sold their stores, and after a two-year hiatus opened Maran Vegan in 2013, the first vegan supermarket in Vienna. Approximately 95 % of all items sold at their store are organic as well as vegan.

I love, love, love their store. It’s such a pleasure being able to choose whatever I like – and not having to read the labels. Everything’s vegan at this store. The owners and staff are all vegetarians or vegans, and are very helpful.

Fruits and vegetables are provided by an organic farm outside of Vienna. Maran Vegan sells hard-to-come-by products like vegan tooth paste with added Vitamin B12.

The vegan bistro has the same opening hours as the store, so you can eat breakfast there (7.90 – 10.80 Euros). The bistro has lunch specials: soup (3.80 Euros) and one entrée (7.90 Euros), dhal with rice (4.70 Euros), various snacks, and a selection of salads (small: 4.90 Euros, large: 6.90 Euros). (2019 prices, which are due to change in the future.) Bread and pastries from various bakeries are sold at this bistro, and during the Viennese Carnival season, you can buy Krapfen, one of my favorite pastries.
