Short walk from the Apprenticeship dock where the "Two Toots" launch service dropped us off to do some grocery shopping and get breakfast.

This is a great stop for organic foods and produce, although we find the produce prices extremely high. Nice sandwiches and soups, friendly servvice.

If you are looking for organic, local foods Good is the place to go. Not the selection that you will find at Whole Foods, but pretty good considering Rockland was a stinky old fishing village not too long ago. The staff is friendly and will help you find what you need.

This is great for my daughter & grandson who have several allergies! They also have a wonderful assortment of chocolates, homemade cookies and whoopie pies(my grandson's favorite) that are gluten, dairy... More

Not a frequent shopper, but am not a stranger either. Small, but packs alot of product for sure! No qualms about that. However, the customer service leaves much to be desired. I realize a number of "employees" are volunteers/members? but shouldnt they still at least acknowledge you? Am I wrong? Last time I went in looking for a specific item... More
