Save a ton of money
Posted on 02 / 20 / 2008
This place is awesome. You have to put a little effort into shopping here, bagging things and finding containers at home for items you're used to getting packaged, but you'll save a ton of money (plus it's environmentally friendly).
I come here once in a while to stock up on pantry items like dried beans, whole wheat pastry flour, vital wheat gluten, nutritional yeast, nuts, dried fruit, herbs and spices. I'm always stunned by how low my bill is. It's pretty easy to get to with public transportation, metro to rhode island ave and then a short bus ride. If I lived closer I'd come here way more often for things like the fresh local, bulk organic tofu and the insanely good vegan ice cream made at a shop on the same street.
So, shop here! Everyone is really friendly, too - even the other shoppers will smile and greet you.
