Big Spread in the Big Easy

Posted on 12 / 11 / 2011

This store is a massive, beautiful store in a great location. Lots of vegan options and brands I had never seen in the Southeast before. They had Earth Cafe raw "cheese" cake which is made in California and was something I thought I would never get to taste. Found so many vegan goodies along the way, I had to put some back. You can't go wrong here, and you definitely won't go hungry!

Pros: Big selection, Lots of vegan treats, Nice store
Cons: Parking garage is smoggy and cramped

Good salad bar

Fairly large Whole Foods with a good salad bar. Far from the centre, though, so not really convenient as an alternative for lunch when visiting New Orleans.

Whole foods, non labelled non organic and refined

Whole foods has sometimes aved me travelling from eating really bad foods. But for the price per pound they charge, the global quality vegatebales beans and grains non labelled which means they are industrial bulk products, and bad cheap oils, in brown rice for example, the food never lasted more then 24hours in the fridge, so was already nearly rancid when i bought it. Very green wahing brand in usa, not even giving serious garanties about gmo. A chain can't be good is my deduction for mac donalds as for whole foods. Try to find a locally engaged, maybe smaller farmers community suppporting cooperative shop. (consumer or workers owned) >>> www.coopdirectory.org/directory.htm
some few good organic brands like eden, and some nice friendly people working there, and sometimes better then nothing, for emergencies only, like every supermarket.

Pros: everywhere, worse does exist, got some (few) good organic products
Cons: industrial, environmentally destructive, expensive, bad quality, inducing consumers in error

It took us quite some time to take the street car up to the 6000 block of St Charles, then hike over to Magazine, but it was worth the trip (we were able to take the city bus back down Magazine, toward the French Quarter). We were jonesin' for some fake meat and vegan dessert, which are too scarce in this lovely town. I would rather give my money to a local restaurant, so let's let them know we demand to have more options.

Pros: Clean
Cons: Expensive

Every other Friday they have vegan cooking classes! And they're FREE! =D
The fact that they have all sorts of things to make you a happy vegetarian/vegan is also a bonus!

Pros: carries more than BOCA for veg's!, FREE vegan cooking classes, friendly/helpful staff
Cons: can be hard to find parking, Wish they stayed open even later!
