Newark Natural Foods has a good selection and variety of healthy foods. A lot of items are hugely overpriced, but some aren't. It's not a place where I would do the bulk of my shopping, but it's a good resource to have in your arsenal to pick up some harder-to-find items, especially for those living gluten-free, Paleo, or other lifestyles for which shopping can be a challenge. I might otherwise give this store four stars, but am giving it one star because I am not allowed to shop here. I was kicked out yesterday for being in the store barefoot. While I reluctantly understand the closed-mindedness of the average American store and even of the average American shopper, I wrongly expected to be welcomed at a store that claims to care about organic living. The employee who asked me to leave cited two reasons: 1) that I may injure myself and 2) that being barefoot is a health and sanitary issue in a grocery store. 1) I will not injure myself. I spend almost all of my time barefoot, and have learned to be delicate and aware. Though of course this provides no guarantee to a store owner, so if you would like to have a policy stating "barefoot shoppers shop at their own risk and we are not liable for any injuries to said shoppers" then I would happily accept this policy, even in writing. 2) My feet are far cleaner than your shoes and it's not even close. I wash my feet every day. How often do you wash the bottom of your shoes? YOUR feet may be gross and stinky because they spend 14 hours a day sweating in shoes and socks, but my feet never experience such constraints, and thus they aren't gross. Not one health department in any of the 50 states has a mandate about patrons being required to wear any footwear in any setting, including grocery stores. If it's good enough for the health department, isn't it good enough for you? There are two other likely reasons that went unstated for why I could have been asked to leave. First is ignorance on the part of the employee and/or the store. I've been ignorant on many topics in my life so I cannot blame initial ignorance, but I ask that you spend 15 minutes exploring the issue using your favorite search engine. I'm confident that any negative preconceptions that you may have had will quickly vanish. If not, then at least you were open-minded enough to look into the issue and I would be plenty thankful for that in itself. The other unstated possibility is that you - as a store - have no problem with barefooting but you are concerned that it may be disconcerting to other shoppers. Ignoring the fact that your shoppers are more likely - or at least should be more likely - to be okay with barefooting than the average American consumer, what kind of precedent are you setting if you impose illogical and immoral guidelines upon innocent customers in an attempt to increase profits? This is a slippery slope. Thank you for your time. All I ask is that you spend a few minutes exploring and reflecting upon this issue, even if you ultimately maintain your stance. I would be happy to provide further material if interested. Thanks again.

Good selection of skin/hair care products. Wish they had a bigger choice of incense & candles. Customer service is good. Prices generally pretty in line with other stores in this genre.

A great store for oganic food. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. It's a little pricey.

I have shopped in co-ops all over the country, and think that the prices at Newark Natural Foods are hugely inflated - at least 40 or 50% more than almost any other co-op I've been in recently.
