Out of bread, snacks and patience during my cross-country adventure, my face became bright with hope as the Whole Earth Center on the eastern side of Princeton came into view.
When I walked in, the store’s aromas soothed my mind, wooing me into a better mood. An oasis of healthy living, its shelves loaded with organic goods, a deli offering gluten-free options, and an entire separate area dedicated to colorful produce from local growers. As I had anticipated, the prices were a little higher than I was used to, but in the face of hunger, one has to make choices.
I chose a loaf of frozen bread for $7.19 and couldn’t resist the fresh-baked gluten-free cookies despite their $11/pound price. Their assortment was excellent – at least 6 different flavors – and the homemade consistency and flavor were exceptional – worth every penny. Even my non-gluten-free partner enjoyed them.
The staff was helpful and friendly, and the bathrooms were clean.
If you’re on the road and in need of something good to eat – stop in to the Whole Earth Center.
