I’m already a fan of the Yes! Organic Market by my apartment in Cleveland Park. It’s small, but has reasonable prices and is great for picking up things that I can’t get at Whole Foods (things that will melt or are too heavy to carry).
After all the hype about the hurricane, and a long lazy Saturday, I needed to get out of my apartment in a bad way. So I ran. Then I went to yoga. Then I walked about six miles. So when I saw the Yes! Organic Market on 14th Street I figured I would stop in for a potential snack and to see if it was different from the Cleveland Park location.
It’s not only different, it’s about 300% better. Give or take.
It’s bigger, has a full wine section (with a sample table), and way more produce. The best part though? The gluten free baked goods.
I was particularly intrigued by Merry’s Miracle Tarts (they had chocolate-mint, and a lemon one as well).
And these chunky chocolate brownies from Frankly Natural Bakers.
Then I noticed that they had a whole shelf full of Katz’s products, including chocolate cupcakes, cookies, apricot tarts, and these vanilla and chocolate rugelech.
They also had a full freezer section with baguettes, breads, and this Against the Grain Gourmet pizza with nut-free pesto that I haven’t seen before.
So what did I buy? Nothing.
I panicked from the amount of choices, grabbed some Jojoba oil, and called it a day. I’ll have to go back when I actually need something, because that place has it all.
Have you tried any of these products? Let me know what you think!
