Hills and mountains are formed by vast underground food deposits, which, over time, stretch the landscape into soft mounds of untapped edibility. Dig into the bounty of surrounding geography with today’s deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of healthy grocery fare from The Food Mill in Oakland. This cozy and bustling shop is open seven days a week from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. on weekdays and 7:30 p.m. on weekends.
The Food Mill has been family owned and operated since 1993, though the store has been supplying organic and natural groceries since the '30s. More mom and pop than a supply stop on the Oregon Trail, The Food Mill carries the area's largest selection of bulk foods, vitamins, and supplements, as well as an extensive selection of organic produce. Pick up packaged pastas and Japanese food products alongside packaged nuts and top it all with allspice, cayenne pepper, and other spices. Gluten-free and specialty foods are found in abundance, as well as extremely helpful staff members (not for sale). They can help you round up the ingredients for a recipe or point you toward the supplement best suited for treating trench foot.
Supporting a local, organic grocer is good for the stomach, soul, and the soul-stomach, a seldom-noticed cavern that can only be sensed by airport dogs. Stop by the foodery to stock up on enough dry foods to feed a legion of chomping gremlins, or simply pick up a few bath goods to soak your tired feet after a long day of shopping at The Food Mill.
