Welcome to Lotus Leaf Healthy Market

We offer loose teas and herbs, serve tea by the cup and have tea steeping supplies.  The market also carries a wide range of pantry supplies for healthy cooking such as: gluten-free products, textured vegetable protein, quinoa, soy flour, rice flours, liquid amino, nuts, seeds and so much more…..

It is essential to learn how to take care of ourselves internally and externally, and so very important that we take charge of our health and well being by making positive choices on what we bring into our lives and into our bodies (or onto our plate!).  So, in addition to offering a variety of natural foods, gluten-free and organic products, we will be offering a monthly schedule of cooking classes from vegetarian & vegan to gluten-free menus, as well as slow foods and ethnic cuisine.    We will also discuss additives and preservatives to avoid, creating an alkaline diet and explore such workshop topics as “making your own cleaning products” to growing and using herbs. Consider Lotus Leaf Healthy Market as your local resource for some of these natural health alternatives.
