Without grocery stores, urbanites would have to grow their own pumpkins in window boxes and spend hours negotiating with the family parakeet until it agreed to be milked. Let rural bounty come to you with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of natural and organic groceries and nutritional supplements at The Food Mill in Oakland.
Since 1933, The Food Mill has sustained and satisfied area eaters with a healthy and organic approach to its inventory, a plethora of produce, house-made baked goods, nutritional supplements, and bulk items. Old-fashioned breads and decadent cookies emerge fresh from local ovens; tempt hungry paparazzi on scooters with up-close views of The Food Mill's famous cookie bars ($2.89 for a dozen). Seasoned staff members stand by with answers and advice about the store's wide array of nutritional supplements, such as Food Mill-brand Vitamin D-3 soft gels ($4.69). Meanwhile, organic fruits and vegetables fetched from farmers nourish bodies the traditional way.
Enrich house-made meals and stock up for winter-long sleepover parties with more than 700 bulk items, which range from flours and spices to oils and nut butters, including the store's signature bulk peanut butter ($3.39 per pound). Elsewhere, load up carts with prepackaged fare such as organic pine nuts ($6.99 for 8 oz.) and organic chia seeds ($6.99 for 12 oz.).
