No need to go downtown for some local vermont fare. Get your Kombucha on at this place while getting ready to go to the mall.

I try to hit Healthy Living at least once a month (I live an hour or so away). I wish it were closer. Amazing in every way - so much great food from pre-prepared food to seafood, to local beef/meats, salad bar, soups, juice bar, organic and gluten free - all my hard to find items live here.

So yeah, this is a trendy friendly feel good place to shop however their hot bar leaves a lot to be desired particularly during after work hours. The choices appear great but usually dried out and oddly strangely flavored. I had a risotto there which made me wonder who prepared it. Its a nice change from chain market hot bar,... More

Here the staff really believe in what they are doing, and clearly subscribe to the ethos. The food is excellent, but get here quick. Around meal times it gets very busy, hardly surprising with the food as good as it is - sure, you can carry out, but if you want to eat in, tables are limited.
