This is the perfect hearty vegan soup for chilly winter nights that need a Japanese flair. To make this dish gluten-free, make sure to use a gluten-free vegetable broth, gluten-free miso paste, gluten-free tamari soy sauce, and 100% buckwheat soba noodles. Wheat flour is a common filler in dried soba noodles and miso pastes, so make sure to read the packages carefully before buying.

Central Market first opened its doors in Austin in 1994. Because Austin is the Live Music Capital of the World (no, really, it is!), that first store featured patio space for musicians to perform. To this day, you can dash into the Cafe at Central Market, pick up a custom sandwich or a hot dish with certified organic ingredients, then take a seat on the patio and listen to whoever happens to be playing that night.
Central Market also keeps a commitment to local farmers and food artisans by buying exclusive lines like Araya Marshmallows (from the Zullian family of Katy, TX), and Willie’s Cacao (from cacao farmer and chocolatier Willie Harcourt-Cooze). They also help develop local talent by offering classes in their Cooking School locations, where shoppers can learn more about everything from buttermilk biscuits to Bordeaux.
If you’d like to learn more about Central Market, you can subscribe to their newsletter. You can also shop online for their gift boxes, which are available all over the United States.]]>

This week’s Store of the Week is… The Sweet Potato in Toronto, Canada!
They are a family owned business and originally began as the High Park Organic Market – as they continued to grow in the past several years and became a destination for foodies all over the city, the store became The Sweet Potato, specializing in bringing fresh produce to the whole Toronto community.

The Sweet Potato not only focuses on only having high quality organic foods, but also on selling them at the lowest prices possible. They are capable of doing this because they work directly and closely with their local farmers, suppliers and manufacturers in order to get these great deals for Ontario residents.
