Incredible Selections - Good Food
Posted on 04 / 05 / 2012
I had read about this place on happycow, and here's my Rainbow Acres review.
I was so impressed by the large selections of natural foods and lifestyle products this Rainbow Acres location offers. It's much much bigger than their other location in Marina del Rey.
You can find everything you need plus so much more. Just from browsing all the isles, I ended being in there for over an hour!
Rainbow Acres has their own bakery that makes all kinds of fresh baked goods (some with egg, some with dairy, but not sure if any vegan). Their kitchen also makes these yummy fried tortilla chips (yes fried but YUM).
In their deli you can find some vegan suitable food in the hot bar, soup selection, as well as the salad bar. There's also grab n go sandwiches and salads. The juice bar lets you customize your juices and smoothies.
The selections offered here are much bigger than the ones at my local co-op store where I shop (Santa Monica Co-opportunity), and I was impressed to find a lot of brands and foods I hadn't seen or noticed at my local co-op.
Price-wise, the rates are a bit higher though you can find good sale prices throughout. However it's understandable that independent stores have higher costs than large market chains (like Whole Foods). I felt good about shopping here and supporting the store.
