The freshest local organic produce

Posted on 02 / 24 / 2013

Whole Earth Center has the best organic produce sourced from local NJ growers. They always have a well-stocked variety of season fruits and vegetables and they can actually answer questions about where the food came from. Additionally they have a great selection of pantry goods, a wonderful bulk section and a small deli that makes vegetarian breakfast and lunch. The staff is super friendly and helpful.
You might pay slightly more for certain items than you would at Whole Foods, but the fresh produce is often cheaper and you are helping to support local businesses and growers.

Pros: Freshest produce, Locally grown, Knowledgeable staff
Cons: Some pantry items priced high, Deli not open past lunch

an overall good experience

Posted on 05 / 18 / 2010

ive been to whole earth many times. for the several years i was vegan it was THE PLACE to go for specialty cooking, fake meat or other items i could not find else where. i also find the prices to be much more reasonable, especially when compared to some of the upcharges at similar but smaller local stores. the only one in the remote area that is close in size is basil bandwagon in flemington.

my complaint is with my first foray into their deli prepared vegan selection. i picked up the veggie, fruit and nut cabbage role and it was a horrible experience. it came with 3 cabbage rolls in the package for 7.98. this was steep compared to other things in the store and higher than i like to spend on something like this but they looked delicious and the cabbage looked delicious; rich bright green and fresh. the first bite was such a let down. the wraps are cold, crunchy, incredibly oily and flavorless. what these needed was like a soy/sesame oil and green onion and garlic type of dressing. it really had no flavor and i detected no fruit or nut in the wraps. the flavor was close to cold wet greasy cardboard.

overall i will obviously continue to go to whole earth, but i will think 3 times before ever purchasing one of their over priced deli convenience items ever again

Pros: variety of items, overall pricing, plenty of vegan items incl bakery
Cons: flavor of deli items, pricing of deli items

a very special place

One of the few health food stores left in the area that is not a chain. The Deli and bakery make food from scratch - the way it should be made. All the food has ingredient lists to make eating on special diets easier - you know exactly what you are eating. The chefs at Whole Earth Center are very creative and make fabulous food creations. Be sure to try a cup of soup that is made daily. You can also get super healthy sandwichwes loaded with fresh veggies. Grilled sandwiches are also available. Top everything off with a large selection of tasty vegan and non-vegan cookies and cakes.

Whole Earth will also be opening a brand new deli sometime this year in the space that was once a flower shop connected to Whole Earth Center - even more reason to check it out!

Pros: fresh food, great menu
