The above "Good But Not Great" review is highly critical. I've shopped at this store for many years and find it resourceful when shopping for healthy foods and supplements. It is not a farmer's market nor does it have supermarket turnover. Supermarkets are now carrying "organic" produce and foods but are we sure of what we're really getting? And - Check out their prices!!! And, farmers markets are no bargain either. Back to the Land is a health food store and a good one. Pricy yes but isn't that normally the case with smaller and specialty stores? Employees are helpful and will defer to a more informed staff member when questions arise. If we've done our research we should know what we're in search of and not rely on store clerks for advice. I appreciate having a convenient source to fulfill my alternative health needs.
I really like the feel of Namaskar, when I walk in I feel very at home, especially because I'm offered a cup of tea. I absolutely love the Green juice they carry by Blends of Nature, Liquid Life. It is a bottle of organic nutrients and energy for a cheap price of $6. I did the Blends of Nature detox and I lost 15 pounds. I drink the juices everyday. Finally a healthy addiction! Life is great!
I shop at Appletree Natural Foods regularly and always enjoy shopping there. It has a good selection of health and organic foods plus top notch sales help. And the people who help you are the owners. They stand behind their store because they are standing right in front of you! This is a tried-and-true 'mom and pop' type store that is a pleasure to shop in. Highly recommended.
