What is vegetarian?

Many vegetarians say that, as vegetarians, they don't support the meat industry. However, if someone buys at a place that also sells meat, are they not supporting that place and, in turn, the meat industry? Or does it work differently?

If the above is true, do you believe people that buy from places that sell meat should call themselves vegetarian even though they don't eat meat, since they support the meat industry? If yes, what would someone have to do to 'truly' be vegetarian?

If my thinking isn't totally skewed on this, I'm thinking people should grow what they can and buy what they can't. I understand most people don't have the land to grow anything bigger than tomatoes or somesuch, so this is more hypothetical than anything.

EDIT: Deviatednorm cleared that up for me. So, in interest of more opinion-oriented questions, have you read Plato's cave allegory? If you have, what did you think of it? I just finished reading it for class and it's still sinking into my brain.
