Best Natural Foods Store

The Mustard Seed Market and Café

At the Mustard Seed, you can finally track down those vegetables you've been hearing about on the Food Network. There's frisée and fingerlings for Martha, peppers in seven varieties of "bam" for Emeril, and red dandelion, red bananas, and red kale for Mario. Labeling its fresh produce as either certified organic, transitional, or conventional, the store offers a huge selection -- a boon to vegetarians, the health-conscious, and shoppers who are looking for products that are a little more special than salad-in-a-bag from the local mega-food chain store. A cruise through the rest of the market shows even more variety, from ostrich meatballs to Peking duck sandwiches.
