San Antonio's source for natural foods and herbal and holistic remedies for more than 20 years, the Nacogdoches store was the first one in the small chain to open. The store shows evidence of its age, but the produce and meats are fresh, and the displays are kept clean and filled with items. Expect to encounter at least a half-dozen stockers filling the shelves whenever you visit. The store is a neighborhood favorite and offers frequent discounts and sales on seasonal fruits and vegetables. The quality of the produce is superior to that of most grocery stores, as are the organic meats as well as the fresh breads and pastries from the bakery. Sin Harvest stocks a wide variety of dry goods in its bulk section; the bins are continually refilled, and the prices are reasonable. There are organic, soy and additive-free cereals, chips and drinks, as well. The store also carries a large selection of vitamins, herbs and alternative health medicines, and the staff is knowledgeable and willing to help the customer make an informed purchase. Aromatherapy and homeopathy oils and herbal products are available, too.
