Food For Thought

We know it’s not usual for food stores to think of themselves as educators, but we’re not your usual market. A big part of our mission is to provide the latest information about health, nutrition and wellness to our community. So we invite top local experts and educators, including natural chefs, holistic nutritionists, acupuncturists, herbalists, and naturopathic doctors to share their knowledge with you in classes and workshops we host here at New Leaf. Join us at one of our upcoming events. We just bet you’ll learn a lot!
