This weeks Featured Team Pick comes from Meredith, part of the Health & Beauty team here at Nature’s Newmarket!

“I am forever discovering new and wonderful things at Nature’s Emporium, but one spot I always return to is the vast bulk section. I love to bake and this area provides so many money saving options. There is an excellent variety of organic ingredients including flours, sugars/natural sweeteners, healthy additions like oats, cacao/cacao chips, nuts, seeds, dried fruits; most anything you can think of to put in a baked good. Whether traditional, food sensitive or diet specific, this bulk section has it!”
