There are so many interesting-looking salads behind the deli glass at Nature’s Fare Markets, in central Vernon, B.C., I’m having trouble making a decision. Luckily, as the patient server explains, I can choose a plate combining as many salads as I like. Okay, then. I’ll take a scoop or two of those squash and skinny noodles, a heaping amount of Moroccan chickpea and, oh, some of that heirloom baby tomatoes and kamut. This fresh, flavourful, healthy lunch sets me back about $7—another $3.50 if I add a nice bowl of Borscht or vegetable soup.

Nature’s Fare is a small chain of B.C. health-food stores, mainly based in the Okanagan Valley. It specializes in organic groceries, vitamins and supplements. But its bistro is obviously also a popular place for a healthy bite, judging by the scant free stools and tables at lunchtime.
