I can't say I often go to the mainstream stores. I generally do most of my shopping at "health food" stores, Wholefoods etc. so I very rarely feel like the odd one out. Except for the fact that I'm so much better looking than everyone else, but I guess I'm used to that.
If I'm in a rural area I try to do most of my shopping at the local farmers markets, or even those pick your own schemes directly from the farm. With those pick your own schemes, everyone's buying the same thing so I never feel like an alien there. Except that the farm does usually look like it's been hit by a crop circle after I've picked all my food, so I do get that alien sense of identity a little bit.
The thing is, even in the mainstream stores in my area I'd still be surrounded by a lot of plant-based people. They're everywhere these days. And much more so in America I think. Even the politicians are going plant-based. Al Gore, Clinton, Kucinich, Mayor of Chicago, Mayor of Texas. I think the problem is that you don't live in a big city.
