The variety of dry goods and packaged foods include things like almond and teff flour, raw wheat germ, hemp and baobao powders, soups, oils, vinegars, ghee, nut milks, gelatin, vanilla beans and so much more. Baby food and products fill a whole shelf. They have a “dedicated room (for fruits and vegetables) with a temperature set specifically to guarantee and maintain the freshness of products”. There is a shelf behind the counter with a lovely selection of freshly baked breads. It’s a great place for organic shopping but not so much for restrictive diets like gluten-free.
