The Granary is a health food shop located in a strip mall behind McDonalds just off SE loop 323. It is THE place to buy healthy food and dietary supplements in Tyler. There is also a small branch of the Granary in Lindale – but it’s opening times are limited and frustratingly it is not open on a Saturday morning.
The store in Tyler is small and slightly dark (as all the shelves are loaded with products) but the service is great – the assistants know so much about health and can make recommendations for you at the drop of a hat.
There is a large section for dietary supplements, vitamins and herbal remedies, protein powders, almost a whole aisle of tea! and also organic produce, which is locally grown. They also have refrigerated items like goats milk, free range eggs, tofu and organic yogurts. In the chest freezers lining tone side of the shop there are cuts of frozen meat and other freezer food, including our favorite Ezekiel bread. Of course the Granary stocks other health foods – lots of cereals, nuts, beans and pulses and dried fruit too.
The Granary has some cosmetics and beauty products too plus essential oils. They have cruelty free and environmentally friendly cleaning products.
I buy lots of things at the Granary but here are 2 of my favorite products – Sambucol (it really works to prevent colds!) and Focus vitamins for my son – who, whilst not ADDH, does have a tendency to drift in class. I frequently fail to resist buying some organic almond butter which by the way, is a better price than at the usual grocery stores.
Last week I had to find some food for a friend who follows a gluten and dairy free diet – plus she has some allergies to other things too. The assistant was so helpful in finding me things to send to her – I was amazed that there are so many alternatives to ‘normal food’ out there!
Finally the Granary is a good source of information for alternative medicine and has details on local organic food co-ops, massage therapists and so on.
You will be surprised at how reasonable the Granary is on price. Eating healthily can cost a fortune but the Granary does not overcharge. If you want a more healthy lifestyle – the Granary is a good place to start.
