    »Greenling

    Farmer's markets have fresh food, but you need to get there early. A grocery store has variety and value, but the quality of the products may not suit your requirements. Neither of the places may deliver to you. What do you do? Contact Greenling. Greenling supports local farms and makes the organic foods movement accessible to all. Every aspect of the online shopping cart can be customized, and the delivery day is area dependent. Greenling offers variety, quality, value and delivery, all on one platter. And the platter's organic too!

    »Oat Willie's South

    Although a head shop first and foremost, Oat Willie's has other trinkets and knick-knacks that the sober can enjoy (although, truth be told, many of these objects are evocative of the drug culture).  The smell of New Age herbs, oils, and incense permeate the store, while the music of the 90s Grunge Rock scene fills the air.  Hats and clothing fabricated from hemp adorn the racks in front of a display showcasing posters for sale (Bob Marley album covers, Japanese wood prints, etc.).  The jewelry and ethnic mask collection are impressive, but the following item seals this store's classification as a haven for left-wingers: a Former President George W. Bush Voodoo Doll, anyone?  Do not skimp on the free magazine selection on the way out. - Freddie Obregón

    Whip In has Indian-infused breakfast items available until 2 p.m., perfect for late risers.  Naan (Indian flatbread), scrambled eggs, cheese and your choice of chutney (a spiced, Indian condiment) makes up the breakfast naan (cilantro chutney is rather appetizing).  As if that wasn't enough, they also have an impressive beer selection on tap, a vegan/vegetarian grocery aisle, a wine and beer area, and a tobacconist with Indian candles & incense.
