The Green Shop

This is the awesome health food shop in my town that sells what I desire.  Vegan breads and veggie meat, plus all other kinds of goodness.  The sign above reads Cho Rock Ga Gee, which translates to Green Shop or Market.
Here is one shot looking in.  You can see the lovely variety.  Tons of organic food and the ladies who own the shop (a mother and daughter) know my dietary restraints and are always suggesting things or showing me new products.  They even helped me when I decided to detox and couldn't eat anything with additives and all that.  It is fun with the language barrier but we manage.  The daughter always goes online to translate Korean to English.
I had to include this shot.  The lady is the owner (mother) of the store.  They are beyond sweet, I cannot get over it.  I will miss them when I leave.
Here is a box of vegan bread.  Freakin delicious.  They recently got bagels in that I have been enjoying too.
And  a small variety of their veggie meat selection.  The only downside is that quite a few contain milk.  I'd say it is about half and half.  But the milkless kinds rock.  Recently they brought in soy jerky.  It is very, very addictive and I had to limit myself to only buying it once a week for I eat it way too quickly.

This shop also sells an environmentally friendly beauty products and a lot of local produce.  i don't know how I got so lucky to have this place just down the road from me.

Be well everyone :)

Oh! I'm so incredibly jealous of that store!!! (and Happy belated Birthday, I'm sorry it's late, I've been a little swamped with keeping up with veganmofo posts, I'm glad you had a good day).

Wow, I want to live near this store. Our little Asian market is tiny and has a funny smell in some sections and nothing compared to the variety of vegan options as here. You are so lucky, it looks so cute.

This is a lovely shop. I wish I have the chance to visit it. I was in South Korea last week on a tour.

I fell in love with Korean seasoned side dishes and bibimbap. I had a wild edible green on bibimbab @ Haeulcae Bibimbap Cafe @ Myeongdong Shopping Street.

The dish came with seasoned whitebait and i pass that side dish back.

Oh, i even got Vegan Kimchi :)
