Healthy Grocery Stores in Fort Wayne

Healthy Grocery Stores in Fort Wayne

Trying to eat healthier? Here is an updated, comprehensive list of the healthy grocery stores in Fort Wayne and snippets of what makes each business unique. 1.       3 Rivers Co-Op Natural Grocery & Deli The 3 Rivers Co-Op Natural Grocery & Deli (otherwise known as “The Co-Op”) is located on Sherman Boulevard. The Co-op’s produce section is completely organic and features local produce when possible, as well as meat from local farms year-round. The grocery offers bulk foods, a wellness and supplements department, and an eat-in deli and café. Feel free to call ahead and place an order for pick-up. I recommend the Tofu Reuben! You can also become an owner and support local business and farming, in addition to scoring some great savings. 2.       Earth Fare Located on Dupont Road, Earth Fare is awesome because of its size! In summary, the store has options. If you’re looking for an obscure ingredient or the newest health food product, this is the place most likely to have it. Like the Co-Op, Earth Fare has a café and deli. A helpful tip to note—in the deli, the red bowls signify a dish is vegan. Even if you don’t live on the north end of town, this is a place worth visiting. If you haven’t already tried their “everything vegan” cookies, you’re missing out! 3.       Fresh Thyme Farmers Market Fresh Thyme is located on Coldwater Road off of Coliseum Boulevard and has a great selection of produce, meat, dairy, and frozen products. The store’s best feature is definitely its soup and salad bar. 4.       Ted’s Market Disclaimer—I have never been to Ted’s Market; however, after researching the store for this article, I’ve decided I need to check it out ASAP. Why? Not only can you buy wine by the glass to sip while shopping for regionally sourced food, but the market also features local goods such as Utopian Coffee and homemade bread. What a sensory experience! You can read more about Ted’s Market in an older blog post here, or visit the store’s website. 5.       Fresh Market Fresh Market is located in southwest Fort Wayne off of Jefferson Boulevard. The selection isn’t quite as large as some of the aforementioned stores, but it’s convenient if you live close by. It is also on the pricier end of the spectrum. Think high-end, gourmet goods and gifts. The bakery and fresh flowers are the best features of the store, but the sushi bar is also a plus. 6.       Health Food Shoppe Located on Anthony Boulevard, the Health Food Shoppe includes a fresh deli food bar, organic produce, and vitamins and supplements. The store is smaller; therefore, the selection is too, but this local place is...
