Harvest Country Store
When you think of a typical convenience store, you likely think of shelves stocked with unhealthy grab-and-go snacks, questionable premade food, and old, watered-down coffee. But though it’s technically a convenience store, Harvest Country Store has none of those things.
First of all, it’s full of local, organic, and natural groceries, including quinoa and organic chocolate bars. An article in the West Hartford Patch says the community-minded owners want to “serve the needs and special desires of their neighbors, in an ethnically and racially-diverse part of West Hartford that doesn't have many other retail establishments within walking distance.” That's why they stock ready-made sandwiches and salads and infused organic waters.
In addition to its healthy groceries, Harvest Country Store offers sustenance in sweet and savory forms, from soft bagels and artisan pastries to Connecticut-born ice cream in pretzel cones. And its coffee bar only serves all-organic, fair-trade coffee, which can be topped with syrups that are vegetarian- and vegan-friendly and free of high-fructose corn syrup.
For those who wish to sit as they sip or snack, there's free WiFi and indoor and outdoor seating.
