A Local Grocer Has Us Smitten

by Kortney Campbell on February 2, 2012

Rollin Oats St Pete FLLarge chain grocery stores such as Whole Foods or Publix are often the top choice when looking for a shop with the most vegan options & best deals.  They are usually easily accessible and, for the most part, you know what you are going in to if you have ever been to another branch.  While we appreciate both of these places & visit them on an as needed basis, a local grocer holds our hearts…Rollin Oats.

Why We Love Them…

Not only does Rollin Oats have some of the best organic, vegan and gluten-free pre packaged selections around (including chocolate almond bulk bins & Daiya “cheese” ON SALE, of course), but they have an entire section of delicious prepared foods handmade by their staff!

Rollin Oats Speaking of staff…Rollin Oats has the very best!  Since we love to cook, we spend quite a bit of time food shopping and have been blessed with the ability to really get to know the small, tight-knit group.  They treat you more like a friend than a customer, remembering what you like, don’t like, regular buys, what you told them you were doing last weekend and even suggest items to you that you have yet to try but you will end up loving!  We really appreciate them.

This small scale shop is located on 4th Street North in St. Petersburg, FL.  They are currently in the process of expanding & we are just so very excited to see what they will add to their current selection!   If you live in the area and have not experienced Rollin Oats, I highly suggest it.  It has become our second home & we would love to see you there!

Where do you shop for groceries?  Have you tried Rollin Oats?

    Rolling Oats is wonderful and whenever I’m in St.Pete I try to have lunch there. It was actually one of the first places I had a vegan meal at!
