Product Guide


  • Gourmet Shops/Produce


In the homesteading era of the early 70s, Back to the Land opened in a tiny shop on the burgeoning shopping artery of Seventh Avenue. These days, the store spans three adjacent storefronts while selling health food, dietary supplements and organic produce and juices. Banks of multihued veggies by the entrance smell as fresh as a farm stand in summer, and the juice bar in back mixes cool house blends. All the prepackaged staples are here, too—from Middle Eastern mixes to frozen foods. The staff ably advises customers about herbal supplements and detoxifying teas, as well as the range of items in the cosmetics section. Checkout lines may dawdle which can lead to impulse-purchasing an organic chocolate ball or a low-carb treat, both of which are stored in the bins by the register.
