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 $10, you get $20 worth of natural and organic products at For Goodness Sake Natural Food Store in New Braunfels.
For Goodness Sake Natural Food Store has lined its aisles with all-natural groceries, dry goods, and vitamins for more than 35 years. Organic Nutiva extra-virgin coconut oil ($13.99) makes a healthy substitute for conventional cooking oils whether stir-frying dinner or fitting into a cat suit. Organic eggs from Vital Farms ($5.49/dozen) are laid by chickens raised on pastures in Austin, and each powdered serving of all-natural Bluebonnet's dual-action protein whey ($25.99) packs in 27 grams of protein derived from grass-fed cows.

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.
