Excited to discover this place! - Edit

I have been living just about 3 miles from this market for 5 years now, and I had seen it on Happycow for a while but always figured it probably wasn't so great a place that I needed to be going there. Welllll, boy was I WRONG! It's not very big, but it has a lot to offer. Some of the things I loved about the place:
-All the produce is organic and is reasonably priced for being so
-There are a lot of vegan options in general
-There are a lot of vegan options that even the local Whole Foods and My Organic Market don't have, such as hemp yogurt and Tofurky hot pockets!
-Prices seemed comparable to similar markets (like WF and MOM), and some things were even on sale
-They have a rewards card that's free to sign up for, and you get $10 back for every $350 spent

Pros: Great variety of vegan items, Decent prices, Not crowded

Cons: Smallish

Corrections from Previous Review - Edit

Corrections: Everything in the store is NOT gluten-free. There are many gluten-free, refined sugar-free, organic, and kosher products, as well as a large vitamin and supplement section as well as many (vegan) body care items. The produce section is small and mostly organic - but the store itself is pretty small.

The bulk section is BIG! Most items in the bulk section are vegan, organic, and kosher and are comparable to the cost of these items at other area stores - especially on the 10% off days. (One day a week, everything is 10% off).

In terms of vegan basics, they carry tofu, seitan, tempeh, many plant-based milks, vegan cheese and cream cheeses, vegan chocolate and other baking goods, as well as tons of vegan ice creams and (frozen) bread products. They also have a lot of accidentally vegan products, like tomato sauces and pastes, flours, oils, sauerkraut, etc. Like the previous review said, they have tons of other snacks also like popcorn, chips, crackers, cookies and desserts.

Military members & their families get 10% off every day! I absolutely love Earth Origin's customer service - they are extremely attentive.

Pros: Excellent Customer Service, 10% Off Everything 1day/wk + Military , Bulk Section

Cons: ;( Parking Lot

more of a snack/ vitamin store not a grocery store - Edit

Everything in the store is gluten free. (I do not worry about eating gluten free. I am vegan but I thought it was important 2 say 4 ppl who r gluten free). They didn't have alot of the vegan basics like daiya vegan cheese. I do have 2 say they did have alot of vegan ice cream though. They had more vegan ice cream flavors from different companies then any other store I have gone 2 so far. They also had alot of different things the ice cream was made from (soy, rice coconut.) They had other snacks also like popcorn and chips. I think it was more like a snack and vitamin store then a grocery store (All the other health stores I have been 2 so far have been grocery stores.) They did have a few vegan meals and fake meats but they were mixed in with real meat and real dairy. They weren't even the good vegan meals. When I say they have a few vegan meals and fake meats I mean it is very very very very limited. They do not have a lot at all. I don't live near here so I can't say anything about location. (I was in the area 4 something else so I thought I would check happy cow 4 a health food store) If I did live in the area I would stop here in the summer (Or when it is 70 Fahrenheit in March. Maryland is having some weird weather lately. We didn't get snow in the winter and it felt like spring. Now that it is spring it feels like summer. I don't even want 2 think about what this summer is going 2 b like. Normally Maryland weather is never like this) get vegan ice cream and while I was there 4 vegan ice cream I may get a few other snacks but the price is high so I think I would look 4 another place 4 other snacks.

Pros: gluten free, lots of vegan ice cream choices

Cons: expensive not alot vegan basics no daiya, meat/ dairy is with limited vegan meals, snack/ vitamin store not a grocery store
