i worked at wild oats when they first opened and that place is shaaaaady. such classics as "organic grapes from california" coming out of a box that said product of mexico. maybe they meant the californian penisula or something? i also remember the managers telling people that they were giving the customer a better price on an item because it wasn't marked, but instead they were just making up the "normal" price and selling it for the regular price. they had big signs up that said they didn't sell anything with hydrogenated oils in it, but they did. the list goes on. plus they have a trash compactor which = no dumpstering. LAME.



good earth is awesome.



georgetown market is really nice and fancy. it makes me uncomfortable sometimes because i can't figure out how they can afford that nice of a building. probably mafia ties or something, haha.



there is an oriental market at 5344 w 38th street that i have not been to, but that someone gave me a hilarious calendar from. (super airbrushed girls riding scooters). there is an indian market in the same building with india palace and udupi. thats on lafayette rd and i think its near the oriental market.



winding way farms sells mostly vitamins and stuff. probably 2/3 of hte store is vitamins and supplements. the grocery section has somewhat poor selection, but they do have the essentials.



there are 2 trader joe's and both are on the north side. they are even on teh same street. one is in castleton on east 82nd street. its just west of 465. if you head west from there, 82nd turns into 86th and the other trader joes is on west 86th, a little bit west of township line rd and east of michigan rd. its in a strip mall with a roly poly and panera bread. at township line and 86th there is a chinese restaurant called cheng du which i have already talked about in this thread. SOOOOO GOOOOD.

I am not familiar with Good Earth, ETC. Do they have a good produce (organic) section?



Thanks.

good earth has a small produce section. i'm not sure what all they have. they certainly do not have as much as wild oats. i just really hate wild oats.

Okay. Thanks!



I really like Wild Oats. All of the employees seem to be really helpful and they have a wide selection. I would think if they were misrepresenting their products and/or produce, they would be fined by a regulatory agency and corrective action would be taken. Did that ever happen when you were working there, ETC?

sometime after i stopped working there, the dude who was gm when i worked there got fired for losing a ton of money or something. then the dude who was my manager became gm and i guess he got caught embezzling. i dont know of any lawsuits or fines they've had to pay, though. its possible that the managers there now aren't as bad. i imagine most of the things that were really ****ty about that place had everything to do with those 2 *******s. i'd still rather shop at a local store than a big chain store.

Hello...



I live in southern CA right now, but I'll be moving to Muncie, IN - probably in January. My fiance will be moving there in August. I'm glad to see that there are a lot of good stores and restaurants in Indianapolis! Does anybody know of anything closer to Muncie? I saw that there was a store in Anderson...seems like that is in the vicinity.

Hey Geekgirl. Are you and your DH up to any vegan/veggie meetups? I live on the northern side of Indy.

There definitely are no vegan places in Merrillville. I know there's a cool health food store in Illinois right outside of the Indiana border. I can't think of the name right now. Your best bet is to go to Chicago Diner for a night. It's a bit of a drive from Merrillville, especially when traffic is bad, but totally worth it!

There's a restaurant called Twin Happiness in Crown Point (which is by Merrillville).

Well, I'll be in Merrillville in about 6 hours! I hope I don't starve the 3 days or so I'm there! One can only eat so much damned salad!

I'm here, too (Auburn/Garrett) ! I like the little health food section in Kroger, and the people at Nature's Cornocopia are really good about helping you find stuff and ordering it for you if they don't have it! There is also a great little natural food/homeopathic store on Anthony in Ft.Wayne called The Health Food Shoppe. They carry my favorite addiction: Primal Strips!





And don't forget about the Flat Top Grill at Jefferson Pointe Mall in Ft.Wayne! VERY vegan friendly!! Going to try to make it there for lunch sometime this week! Look it up (and other places you have questions about) on this site that was created by someone from South Bend:

Whenever I see people having discussions about what's vegan, and where to eat, I ALWAYS post that link! I love it. (You do need to add Hacienda! And give props to a server in Warsaw *Tray? I think?* who did A LOT of leg work to find out what could be veganised for us! ~ Apparantly most of the menu. He got a 50% tip!)

I always loved Hacienda's chips and salsa when I lived in the Elkhart area.

I think at Hacienda, I ended up having a vegan black bean quesadilla smothered in lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and extra salsa. They made one for me at the Hacienda at Jefferson Pointe Mall, too. You just have to ask! The only thing I DON'T like is the huge mounted head on the walls. Kind of creeeeeeepy!

If you live in West Edge's Park, I have a friend that lives out there. On one of the streets named with a *last name sounding name*...Like either Franklin or Peterson....something like that. It's the one that is kind of straight back (sort of deep) behind Auto Zone.
