Inexpensive Produce - Edit

Sprouts is a nice store for most things.

I like catching the sushi chef there for custom made vegan sushi!

Marked bins for organic produce.

Pros: Inexpensive Produce

Cons: part health store but part 'regular' store

Don't miss Sunflower for produce - Edit

Sunflower has a wide selection of produce and great prices - they are even cheaper than *gasp* walmart on produce. The organic produce is separate from the non-organic produce. Everything is kept very clean and attractive. If you need help the employees are quite friendly. There is a moderate selection of veg*n frozen foods and canned foods. There are also baked goods, an olive bar, supplements, a good sized bulk food area, prepared foods, and wines.

The canned goods and frozen foods are a bit high for my pocketbook - but if you are in a pinch they do have them. The bulk foods reasonably priced, but you can't beat the produce prices.

Pros: great produce, friendly staff, large bulk area

Cons: small canned area, higher non-produce prices, frozen foods could be larger

mixed selections - Edit

I was here in December 2006. I was excited to check out this place after hearing about it from my Aunt. The inside is pretty big (but not huge like Berkeley Bowl in Berkeley or Rainbow Grocery in San Francisco - though I hadn't been to these places at the time that I went to Sunflower). I thought it was cool that these places are owned by the same people that own Wild Oats (before they got bought out by Whole Foods), but I was sad to see non-organic produce in with the regular produce and Kimberly Clark products (Kleenex) on the shelf in the household section. K-C clearcuts the Boreal Forest in Canada for a large amount of their worldwide fiber needs, and Kleenex tissues are made with 100% virgin fibers. I pretty much almost cried when I saw that on their shelves. And I wanted to write the manager a letter about that - which I never did do, but yea. It's a good store if you on vacay in ABQ and need some health foods, but it's not like shopping at a real health food store. We did buy some amazing wild rice there however.

Pros: sells health food, good that this is in ABQ

Cons: sells conventional household products

Limited choices - Edit

The only Health Food store near Rio Rancho. Has some Vegan choices but is limited. Several vegetarian choices. Their shining star is their produce selection!

Pros: Produce, location, some vegan selections

Cons: not enough vegan items
