First of all, Nature's Food Patch just completed a face lift and renovation, so the place looks great and is more comfortable for shopping. Next, you really have two venues under the same roof.

One is the cafe with new outdoor seating. Patrons pick up their food at the hot and/or cold tables inside, pay for it, and then carry plates into the cafe. Everything is organic with many vegetarian choices. Selections change daily. Always busy and a growing hangout for the locals.

Then you have the other half of NP which is a natural foods grocery store. This is to die for and, even though expensive, always crowded with a growing clientele. But then, I have never seen a good natural foods grocery story that was not expensive. You will find products here that you simply never see in any other grocery store. If one is into a more healthful way of eating with a penchant for organic, raw foods, vegetarian, and sustainable farming -- then this is the place to shop no matter what the cost. However, they do put a number of products on sale every day so it is possible to shop here and still stay within budget -- or at least close to it. They also have once a month discount days. Meat eaters will like the meat and fish counters and the vitamin and supplement center is outstanding.
To put it simply, if you want optimum health and to live to be 100, then NP specializes in the type of food you should be consuming. And it tastes great too!

For those of you who like fresh and nutritious, Nature's Food Patch is definitely worth the trip. It is not only a market, but it has a wonderful food/salad bar and a large variety of fresh sandwiches (hot and cold) which are made to order. They have a small dining room connected to the store which also has a patio if you prefer to eat outside. The quality of the food (as well as the market produce) is excellent and the atmosphere is nice and relaxed. They also have business cards (and magazines) advertising all the natural businesses in the area.It's well worth the trip for a lunch there during your busy day!

I was pleasantly surprised to find such high quality prepared foods and grocery items in such an unassuming location. After 3 days at a conference in a hotel out on Sand Key, I was so happy to have such high quality, truely vegetarian food. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I've been going there for many years to eat, buy food & vitamins, listen to lectures, etc. Employees are friendly. I usually buy off the menu board and bring food to the dinning area. I've also purchased food from the cooler, go to the dinning area and microwave it. Or buy food from cooler and take it home. The food is fresh and tasty. There is a salad bar. A hot bar. A soup section. All are separate.

We stopped by the store today to pick up some fish for dinner. The gentleman behind the counter suggested the salmon was fresh, so we grabbed some of that and a few other items. It made for a perfect dinner, on par or better than any local restaurant. The store was very clean and organized. Easy to find items. Will be back again when we travel to the area.
