Customers can dig into bags of Late July sea-salt chips ($3.19), pairing them with a Sunshine veggie burger ($4.99) for delicious, animal-friendly flavor. After stashing carts with nourishing nosh, saunter through aisles of vitamins, gifts, books, and health and beauty supplies, or invest in a selection of freshly prepared foods to build a healthy meal or a parking lot food sculpture.
FoodWorks will special-order items that are not in stock because of shoppers' cravings and the biddings of Zeus. The store donates a portion of its profits to charitable organizations such as the Union of Concerned Scientists, Doctors Without Borders, and the Earth Island Institute.
