    Your neighborhood bodega is no longer a place merely for late-night Hot Cheeto runs. With more local stores wanting in on the growing market of health-conscious consumers, we’re seeing trending health food products like seaweed snacks and CBD lining the shelves of our local bodega cat hangout. Below is a list of our favorite one-stop shops from around the country, offering some of the healthiest fare along with the convenience of your local corner store. 

    1. The Goods Mart - NY and LA

    The newest kid on the NY block is here and their offering a curated collection of all around, good for you goodies. Similar to a bodega, you can run to the store when you’ve run out of your favorite nut milk or just craving a slushie sans artificial preservatives and dyes.
