Hello,
Just moved to SLC from CA and was wondering if there were any reasonable Health Food stores in SLC area. Whole Paycheck is, of course, an insult to the wallet. I really miss the deals on supplements back in CA/OR.

I could shop online of course, just wondering if there were good stores here hiding in plain sight.

There are a few but I don't know how good they are as I have never been to any of them. It's not like CO or NM where I know there to be several options like vitamin cottage, trader joes, and la montanita food co-op. There is Sunflower Market which I've noticed has overall better prices than whole paycheck.

Sunflower Market was started by one of the Wild Oats/Whole Foods guys. I read the article in the Tribune about the new store for Sunflower just north of the new Whole Foods at Trolley Square. I think the Liberty Heights Fresh is nice too.
On the occasional day that I use meat, I can not imagine getting meat anywhere other than Whole Foods. I love the guys at the meat counter at the one in Sugarhouse. If I am going to eat an animal, I feel a lot better knowing that it was raised humanely-and for me, it is worth the little bit extra money.

Check out Cali's Natural Foods. It is right behind the Costco in downtown SLC and has some great prices on pantry items and other things. I am not sure about supplements, though. What types of things are you looking for? I might be able to point you somewhere.

There is also a new indoors farmers market during winter on State Street, but I have not yet checked it out. Google SLC Indoor Farmers Market for more information.

Good Earth has some locations nearby, but the prices are similar to Whole Foods.

I feel your pain. I miss some of the places I shopped in Portland, Oregon. I have managed to cobble together a little network of stores for the things I need, but I really have to search for the best prices.
