The Big Carrot opened in the 80s with a mission to be organic and GMO-free. This was a time where such concepts were not nearly as trendy as they are today. It now works as a co-op, where full time staff are voted into membership. They become much more than employees, participating in community work and attending membership meetings. The result is knowledgable and passionate people who know their food and are happy to point you in the direction of what is new and exciting. You can buy your groceries here, but there is also a fantastic hot bar which can provide you with easy dinner options. There are store tours and cooking demos, making the Big Carrot the Big Cheese when it comes to health food stores.
- Gourmet Stores: "Meet fellow foodies at the Big Carrot's Monday night vegetarian cooking series. On Thursday night, you can also participate in free lectures which provide public education on social and environmental issues."
- Best for Gourmet Stores Because: Organic, environmentally safe and non-GMO products that are fresh and delicious. Now, that is one stop shopping.
