Vegan gem in Southwest Michigan! - Edit

When you walk in, the main store looks like a typical local supermarket and to your right, just past produce there is an attached health food store. There is zero animal flesh in both the main grocery store and health food area. But the main store does sell eggs and cows milk products. There are vegan foods throughout the main store and tons in the health area. I couldn't believe how many aisles were just jam packed with a gazillion vegan foods. So many delicious snacks and some nice specialty cheezes. The main store frozen section has very unhealthy and extremely delicious vegan cupcakes in 12 packs (your kids' non-vegan friends will gobble these up). Also lots of frozen vegan foods in main store.

It is a bit disorganized but I think that's because they have so much in each aisle. Give yourself time to browse!

My only complaint is the produce. Every single thing I bought was moldy or sprouting 2 days after buying it. Even the lemons turned squishy. Nothing looked that old at the store which I found very odd.

Skip the produce and make sure you check ingredients because a couple items were pointed out to me as vegan but they had milk derivatives.

Pros: selection, kid friendly foods, in SW Michigan

Cons: very old produce, unhelpful staff, disorganized

Awesome Bulk Section! - Edit

My grandma started bringing me to this store when I was little and I've seen it change so much in the past 30+ years. All the changes are always for the better. It's the absolute BEST place for bulk items - I get my TVP, grains, beans, legumes and more here. Prices are great and the staff is always so friendly. I feel healthy just being in this store :)

Pros: Excellent Bulk Prices, Awesome Staff

Apple Valley fan since before my birth! - Edit

Born and raised in Chicago, my family discovered Apple Valley during a summer visit to SW Michigan. Mom was thrilled to find a grocery that carried so many different varieties of healthy foods, herbs (for cooking as well as medicinal), spices, vitamins, supplements, water filters, and more along with a great deli. The prices are much less than we could find in Chicago. Staff is knowledgeable and eager to help. At the time, according to Dad, Mom "was as big as a barn" as my birth was due in two weeks. And we've been returning ever since so I've been a fan since before my birth.

Pros: selection, prices, staff

Cons: none

I LOVE THIS HEALTH STORE! - Edit

I shop here weekly and I love their selection of bulk products. I typically purchase produce, nuts, seeds, and vegan bars. I also enjoy their Cafe from time to time. The veggie wrap rocks. Everything always fresh and affordable.

Pros: bulk items, diverse products, cafe

Cons: no many raw items
