From Ben and Sandra, in Alameda, California:
A few months ago we discovered New Leaf Community Market; they have five locations, two in Santa Cruz and in Capitola, Felton and Boulder Creek.
Sandra liked the breadth of items, a good gluten free selection the quality of produce and other products, and they have some fun things. We also liked that they have a commitment to local community.
I liked the broad selection of items independent of what part of the store you were in -- wine, cheese, olives, fresh vegetables, prepared food, spices, etc.
Next time we visit Santa Cruz, we definitely will shop here.
