Nice Market, Good Atmosphere, Eclectic Selection

Abundance is a nice community. It has a nice selection of organic and local foods and sells quite a few things that you cannot find elsewhere in Rochester. The bulk section has a very nice assortment of dried fruits, nuts, granola, and baking supplies. Although I prefer the bulk section at Lori's, Abundance has an unbeatable location; it's actually in city center. Apart from the one Wegmans location in the city, Abundance is the best place to get groceries in city center. Abundance has a wide selection of frozen foods and a nice mix of non-dairy ice cream. They also have very delicious prepared sandwiches (try their chicken-fried tofu!) and entrees (the dumplings are great)! On top of this, they have an area with tables and chairs, fee wi-fi, and a bike rack. My main complaint is that their produce section is a tad small and pricey (although it is all excellent and I think this means that their farmers get a fair price).

Pros: Nice location, Eclectic Selection, Friendly staff
Cons: A little pricey

Good Enough

As others mentioned, this is a small grocery place but with enough items that you need, including some baby food, diapers. i like the bulk items section. The deli is very small, basically just bagels, one meat soup and a slightly spicy chilli (so not good for young children. If you intend to eat, may be just go to the nearby The Owl House). i did a take away big cup chilli, it costed only $4. There is a sitting area which is good enough for may be 10-15 people at a time. It is around 1 mile walking from downtown (i started from Hyatt). If you use the pedestrian path of Clinton Avenue, the neighbourhood doesn't seems very run down. But it does if you walk from Monroe.

Pros: Walkable from downtown, Bulk items section, Atmosphere
Cons: *

nice little market

Used to be Genesee Food Co-Op on Monroe...I have been going there since I was a kid. A great natural food market with many vegetarian/vegan options. Smaller than Lori's, but they have most anything you need. Right across the street from The Owl where Atomic Eggplant used to be. Friendly staff and a local feel with a bulletin board with area postings. You can eat-in, and they have homemade veggie sandwiches and lunch choices. Love it!

Pros: A lot to offer in a "smaller" store, Friendly staff, Specialty items you cant find at Wegmans


Awesome little store!

This is just an awesome little store! A great selection for the health minded person and most items are more affordably priced. some aren't - so know your prices! - but most are for this type of food and products. More affordable than Lori's and the staff are super friendly and helpful!

Pros: good selection for small store, helpful staff, mostly affordable prices

Abundance is just that... an abundance of choices for vegans, vegetarians, and for omnivores who are mindful of where their meat comes from (they now have meat from local, small farm suppliers). It is more expensive than some of the other stores, but it's not as expensive as Lori's, and it has a good variety of items packed in. I love the entire shopping experience and the feeling of family-- the cooperative members seem to know everyone who walks in the door.

Pros: atmosphere, variety, great staff
Cons: pricing on some items, location

Abundance has what you need

Abundance is a cooperative grocery store and deli that serves homemade sandwiches and wraps, soups and delicious desserts. Many vegan options. Try the vegan BLT, chickpea salad wrap or mock chicken salad. You can eat dinner here for about $ 10.00 including sandwich, soup and drink. You can also get groceries and produce that are organic/fairtrade. Check it out!
(I have shopped here many times and I am not a shareholder or employee.)
