If it were possible to gain healthy habits through osmosis, the Good Food Store is where it would happen. Once again, the popular supermarket-and social hub-gets props in four different categories this year, all of which speak to its “good food” name. When it comes to produce, we like the fact that, when available, the pesticide-free fruits and veggies are locally sourced. But when we’re lazy, we gladly hit up the salad bar to whip up a customized plate that includes freshly made dressings and an assortment of veggies, meats, cheeses and nuts. The deli case, too, is full of salad options made with pasta, rice, beans and grains that are clearly marked for vegan and vegetarian cuisine. All that ruffage makes you happy, and that’s why after getting crowned for best produce, best salad and best vegetarian food, voters picked GFS for best supermarket overall.
