Feels Rundown and Pricey

I will always have a special place in my heart for Queens Health Emporium. Twenty-years ago I gave up meat (vegan soon after) and a friend took me on a tour of this place to show me what vegans could eat. I learned what tempeh was, what seitan was, how to substitute things and what vegan options there were (about a billion less than today).
I went there yesterday for the first time in a long time and their produce selection has grown a bunch and looked great.
Their hot counter looked blah to me, but I did not taste it, so I cannot review it. Maybe it tasted a hundred times better than it looked.
Their selection of products is huge, but for whatever reason they did not have a few things I wanted. The prices were higher than a lot of other small independent health food stores and the place just had a bit of a rundown feel to it. I will say the two people I interacted with that worked there were super nice, but I just didn't feel the same as I did when I used to go there regularly.

Pros: Large Selection, Friendly Staff

Cons: High Prices, Could Use Some Remodeling

Great selections

This store has so many great options! Even in the organic supermarket products, and beauty supplies! My only complaint is the price- definitely not the cheapest store.

Pros: Lots of options , Fresh selections , Love the extra beauty goodies

Cons: Expensive

Fresh Organic Produce!

Terrific little supermarket - I was very impressed by the large selection of beautiful and fresh organic produce. I was able to find everything I wanted here, including vegan cheese and vegan baked goods. There's a lovely selection of vegan food for takeout in the back - I'll be going back to try it.

Pros: Wonderful produce, Has everything, Great for vegans

What a selection!

This place is veg friendly. I think they have meat and organic produce here, among the veggie and vegan items. There is a deli where you can buy ready made food. They have a lot of veggie and vegan items. My favorite find here is the vegan alfredo sauce. You could easily spend a few hours here: there's the deli; there's a vitamins/supplements section; a refrigerated/frozen section with vegan cheese, vegan cream cheeses, vegan sour cream, vegan ice creams; pastas; sauces; protein bars; etc etc etc!

Pros: Lots of variety

Cons: Kind of expensive

Very Cozy, Large Variety Health Food Store

This place has Everything! But not 100% vegan or vegetarian they still carry meat and fish product. A little on the pricey side but they do carry many hard to find items, which is great if you don't have time to travel to Whole Foods in Manhattan. The best part is that they accept EBT/Food Stamps! :)

Pros: Variety, Nice layout, Accepts Food Stamps

Cons: Prices not Commensurate w/ local market

No one ever said it wss 100% vegan or vegetarian. There are people that eat meats and fish that enjoy organic foods and health products. You people are always so selfish, just thinking about yourself.
