Whether or not you’re vegan, you’ve probably heard of meatless Monday or even dairy-free Friday (a thing, maybe). But no matter if you’re hoping to help save the planet or save yourself from inflammation, living that meat-free lifestyle is often easier said than done.

WalletHub has done the math, crunched the numbers, and ranked America’s 100 largest cities in terms of vegan- and vegetarian-friendliness to prove once and for all whether living New York City, Los Angeles, or some other metropolis makes meat-free living easiest for its residents.

While New York City ranks highly for restaurants, menu options, salad shops, and juice stores, Gotham doesn’t crack the top-five for vegetable nurseries or lowest cost of vegetarian groceries.

Using a formula that included grocery costs, restaurant menus with meatless options, plus other relevant indicators, WalletHub confirms some suspicions: New York City comes out on top (all those By Chloe outposts sure help). The, er, Big Apple is followed by Portland, Oregon, Orlando, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. On the other end of the list is (surprisingly!) Fresno, California, Toledo, Ohio, and Greensboro, North Carolina.

While New York City ranks highly among indicators including restaurants, menu options, salad shops, and juice stores, Gotham doesn’t crack the top five for vegetable nurseries or lowest cost of vegetarian groceries (which might have to do with the city’s infamous space limitations).

Four of the five cities ranked for offering the cheapest veggie groceries are in Texas, while four of the five cities with the highest-priced fresh fruits and veggies are in California. But, hey, at least those Californians probably have a sunny outlook about the pricey produce!

For your girl boss aspirations, these are the best states in America for women’s equality and the best cities for jobs.
