Beverly Crock and her daughters, Lauren and Shannon, are the family behind For Goodness Sake Natural Food Store. They stock familiar items such as bacon, as well as lesser-known products such as bioflavonoids—plant compounds believed to improve the skin's appearance. But if visitors aren't familiar with such items, it's not a problem. “We educate people,” Shannon explained to The NB Scene. “That comes naturally to me because I grew up this way and it is my lifestyle as well.”
Although the store's representatives happily guide patrons through their inventory, many of the store's products need no introduction. Rainbow-hued carrots and crisp sugar-snap peas beckon from their perches, and organic eggs come from Vital Farms, where chickens roam in pastures and take European vacations whenever they want. Additionally, at the juice bar patrons sip on nectars squeezed from the store’s organic produce.
As a young man, Dan Foss experienced first hand the way chiropractic treatments could be an effective alternative to traditional Western medicine. When his mother refused to have her third-grade son medicated with muscle relaxants, she swept him across the street to the local chiropractor. After a few painless adjustments, his injured neck was back to normal, and as Dan says, "from that day forward I wanted to study everything I could about chiropractic."
Today, he is Doctor of Chiropractic Dan Foss, and he has practiced more than 12 chiropractic techniques across three continents, culminating with the opening of Pura Vida Chiropractic in 2010. Combining quick chiropractic adjustments, thorough consultations, and wellness advice, Dr. Foss hopes to improve the overall lifestyles of each client, especially the ones who limbo professionally or maybe just those that need to get past the kitchen table whenever it's in the way.
A full-service healthcare and wellness practice formerly known as InterFit, RediClinic pairs licensed nurse practitioners and physician assistants with patients seeking services ranging from physicals and vaccinations to cosmetic consultations and diabetes testing. Typically found inside retail stores, RediClinics don't require any appointments, making walk-in service as seamless as the plot of most Newhart fan fiction. In addition to preventive services, RediClinic has also expanded its services into the realms of proactive health, promoting wellness with weight-loss counseling and programs to help patients stop smoking.
Tutti Frutti Frozen Yogurt's staff prepares self-serve yogurt in a choice of tart or creamy flavors that complement a vast selection of fruit, nut, and candy toppings. The shop encourages democratic principles by allowing each patron to create their own delectable masterpiece without having to smudge self-portraits onto fruit roll-ups. The rotating roster of cold treats has included kiwi, peach, and red velvet, and the probiotic-filled yogurts offer a healthier alternative to traditional ice cream. Tutti Frutti, like an airline, maintains an international presence, only serves peanuts to augment the enjoyment of its primary service, and offers outdoor seating.
Teardrop light fixtures drip down from the ceiling to illuminate the tiled walls and colorful chairs inside So Sweet Frozen Yogurt. Patrons carefully pull the handles on 16 frozen yogurt dispensers and one out-of-place slot machine to mix their favorite tastes from a rotating lineup of flavors that includes pistachio, cheesecake, and lychee. At the toppings bar, guests add spoonfuls of coconut, cherries, chocolate chunks, and other sweets to further customize their creation. For more liquid palates, So Sweet Frozen Yogurt also blends smoothies and boba teas in 30 flavors, including peanut butter and green apple, studded with submerged tapioca pearls.
Inside the kitchen of Capparelli’s Italian Food, the smell of baking bread and pizza dough mingles with the aroma of fresh seafood being prepared for Italian feasts. Piles of pasta accompany baked salmon or meatballs in marinara, garlic, or mushroom sauce. After ordering at the counter, diners can feast on homemade pizza dough topped with fresh ingredients such as hamburger, jalapeños, or bell peppers that ring in A-flat when bitten.
