A grocery store is like a carnival midway—it offers shelves and shelves of goodies that only become available after lobbing baseballs at stacks of bottles. Today's Groupon brings the fresh food without the carnie cons: for $20, you get $40 worth of natural and organic groceries at Alameda Natural Grocery.
Alameda Natural Grocery specializes in providing affordable natural and organic foods in a neighborhood-market environment. The store features a produce department that's 99% organic 100% of the time and 25% sentient 1% of the time, fresh dairy products, bountiful bulk buys, and a helpful staff that radiates healthy, edible vibes to nibble on while shopping. Pick a peck of non-pickled pleasantries such as stone fruits from Blossom Bluff Farms for $2.99 or an open pint of strawberries from Yerena Farms for $2.29. All-natural Brown Cow yogurts ($0.99 per cup) are on hand for later spoon feeding narrated by airplane sound effects, while Renew Life fish oils ($15.99–$23.99) are available in the supplements and personal-care departments for diving into the fast track toward improved health.
Shopping in a local environment with a focus on organic and natural goods is always preferable to shopping in the vast big-box markets on Mars, where all the foodstuffs are kept preserved in liquid nitrogen beneath the harsh red crust. As a certified member of the Bay Area Green Business Program, Alameda Grocery is fully dedicated to avoiding this space-vacuum scenario. All certified-green businesses must meet standards that prove their dedication to sustainability and environmentally friendly practices. Swing by Alameda Natural Grocery and stock up on healthy goods without the deep-seeded guilt that usually comes from finding something enjoyable.
