I live on the east coast and there are no other health food stores here other then WHOLE FOODS!!! Whole Foods is huge but I find they only have certain things. Anyway what I am getting at is that I want Wildwood Brand tofu or soy products and I can't find them anywhere in this area, I am in Boston. It is frustrating, I can't even find a place to order it online. ANyway what are some of you all's fave brand of tofu? I am looking for a very firm firm tofu? Anyone

tiggy.......are you right in the city? if not i think there is a Wild Oats on the north shore somewhere, maybe near malden? maybe they have what you are looking for? or maybe either store will order it for you if you ask?<br><br>
i buy nasoya because its the only brand my local grocery has, but i know there are better tasting brands out there.

I know what you mean. I am in Western MA and believe me it is much worse over here. Boston is like a paradise to me.

I am in Maryland and there's a decent amount of choices here. Of course we have Whole Foods just about everywhere (except in the city where I live - Ha!). But Frederick has The Common Market Co-Op <a href="http://www.commonmarket.com" target="_blank">www.commonmarket.com</a> which is newly renovated and wonderful. There's also MOM's (My Organic Market) <a href="http://www.myorganicmarket.com" target="_blank">www.myorganicmarket.com</a> all over MD and there's one in VA. Pangea is another great store in Rockville that has an online store that you can try <a href="http://www.veganstore.com" target="_blank">www.veganstore.com</a>. There are plenty of other small markets but I think Whole Food's monopoly makes it difficult for smaller HFS's to flourish. Common Market seems to be the exception though as they just recently expanded their store.<br><br><br><br>
I found a link listing a bunch of veg*n restaurants and HFS's in Mass. <a href="http://www.happycow.net/north_america/usa/massachusetts/index.html" target="_blank">http://www.happycow.net/north_americ...tts/index.html</a><br><br><br><br>
I haven't yet tried making tofu dishes on my own so I can't recommend any brands.<br><br><br><br>

Don't tell me that about Boston >_< I plan on moving there within the next 3 years and I heard from many people there were quite a few veg places. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

See I think my problem is that I have been corresponding with people in California and Oregon area and they have it all. There is a Wild OAts but their shelves are usually empty. Whenever I go there they are out of what I need. Right now all of their bulk bins are empty, they don't even have peanuts. I have to say though the harvest coop is the best I have seen, it is just not close to me. I was talking about small independent health food stores by the way, I think I should open one. Seriously. ALso Lani, I tend to exagarrate, you will be fine in Boston with vegan options, I just tend to look for really obscure items that only peeps in huge Vegan Meccas like POrtland can find. For example Feild Roast Loaves, wildwood tofu and soymilk, things like that. I don't want to worry you.<br><br><br><br>
Also I am not a big Trader Joe fan, they have a very very limited vegan selection. One thing I do love about them though is their cheap condiments, like vinegar, oils, and spices.
