Nature's Corner Market, Spring Lake Heights

[I searched and saw no other mention of this place, so if this is redundant, I am sorry.]

Having been reminded by the recent discussion of the German butcher that the quest for better ingredients is something many of us enjoy, I thought this grocer worth mentioning.
Nature’s Corner is located in same strip mall as the SLH Post Office. It has morphed into an excellent place to by great food.

First up, the produce, predominantly organic, is significantly fresher than what I typically find in the supermarkets in this area. Recently, we enjoyed Jerusalem artichokes, beets, Swiss chard, and kale. All of it was delicious. We even ate the beet greens in a salad.

It is also a great source for Asian ingredients. Like the rest of the produce, the ginger roots were of better quality than I usually find. Other noteworthy products include soba noodles, naturally fermented soy sauce, and kimchee.

Additionally, although limited, the meat products were special, as well. I found a real free range chicken (if you look closely at the labels, most of the “organic,” “hormone free,” etc. birds, “free range” does not appear). I also picked up some grass fed beef (which, together with some organic yam and carrot, will become stew in a couple hours).

Now, I admit, we do call the place “the hippie store,” and it does seem as though multiple piercings are a prerequisite to working there, but they do a fantastic job of stocking a small, local grocery. If you’re ever nearby, check it out. (Maybe even treat yourself to a bottle of Braggs unfiltered, apple cider vinegar.)
