TIE: Wheatsville; Fresh Plus

Though it boasts upwards of 17,000 members, Wheatsville still retains its “quaint local co-op” feel. And with a selection of local produce and goods for every diet type, it’s the perfect place to shop whether you’re on a juice cleanse or looking for some vegan dessert. Fresh Plus has roots in Austin dating back to 1927. With health food nestled alongside bigger brands, it’s the one-stop grocery for Austinites who like some balance in their pantry. As their site says, Fresh Plus is the place where “you can get your Frosted Flakes and gluten-free snacks in the same place.”
