Respond to Review of Sahara Mart - downtown
Review: I disagree with the post calling Sahara Mart sketchy and dirty. So far I have yet to find any grocery stores, natural or otherwise, that I would call truly "clean." All establishments that carry food have these problems. The advantage at Sahara Mart is that the owners really care about their customers. I do find out-of-date products but they are always happy to replace them. And as for food quality, I don't buy the bulk items (all open containers scare me), but I've never had anything rancid from the deli - something I can't say for Bloomingfoods. (I'm a regular customer at both stores.) Their deli has a wide rotation of increasingly inventive and flavorful items (though few dairy-free choices). Sahara Mart also has a much better array of gluten-free/casein-free items, and a nice 10% discount on Tuesdays. They have a wide variety of international items and an extensive beer and wine section. A second store is in the works for the East side of town, a testament to their popularity.
