Nutritionist Robert Dagger’s vegan -food shop projects a neighborly vibe, with sunny yellow walls, bookshelves full of New York raw-food guides, and children’s drawings displayed in the front window. But despite the small-scale feel, the store caters to a nationwide clientele, shipping an arsenal of nutritional supplements, dried fruits, gluten-free crackers and breads, “live” salsas, organic condiments, and vegan snack bars across the country. Products are meticulously chosen, with an emphasis on pure, unprocessed ingredients: natural granola by Lydia’s Organics, germinated and dehydrated Living Nutz trail mix, unprocessed raw honey from a beeyard in Pennsylvania, and High Vibe’s own dehydrated fruits and vegetables (“As Raw as You Wanna Be”), sold in bulk. Dried berries, pure maple syrup, natural nut butters, and organic beauty products cater to a yoga-mat-toting Whole Foods contingent, while the shop’s more unusual offerings—fish-free “sushi chips,” nut-based mock-Oreos (“raweos”), chickpea croquettes—draw a loyal following of serious vegans and raw-food devotees.
