It's not just on the East & West coasts that people are demanding more vegetarian foods. The midwest is also trending veggie: "From meatless burgers and tofu hot dogs to chicken-style cutlets and Canadian veggie bacon, sales are booming to $500 million per year, according to market research from Chicago-based Mintel Consumer Intelligence," says The Fort Wayne News-Sentinel.

"Shoppers are definitely asking for more vegetarian items," said Mike Thro, produce manager at Duluth's newly opened Festival Foods. "We offer several vegetarian products throughout the store, but will continue to add more because people are asking for them."
