A Mediterranean deli that warms veggie and chicken wraps in a panini press and prepares fresh-stuffed grape leaves. A smoothie bar that blends protein-packed drinks. A grocery store that stocks gluten-free foods and fresh produce. Green Life Market encompasses all of these things. The organic market—which is located directly off the highway—also sells discounted New Chapter supplements, and crafts their own homemade cinnamon hummus. Designed to sate snack cravings and fuel workouts, their signature energy balls blend gluten-free oatmeal, coconut flakes, almond pieces, local honey, organic flax, organic peanut butter, and pumpkin, sunflower, and chia seeds.
