Growing Sustainably: Greens ‘N Grains Expands

Greens ‘N Grains Natural Food Store (GNG) in downtown Egg Harbor is expanding their existing store and services. Owner Kathy Navis is adding 1,000 square feet to offer even more of the earth-friendly products you’re searching for.

Highlighting the expansion is the addition of a vegetarian and raw food deli and juice bar. The deli will offer a wonderful selection of raw foods prepared by our own “un-cook,” Cindy Knigge. The new deli will also feature freshly-pressed veggie juices, fruit smoothies, healthy bakery, a tea bar and organic coffees.

As part of the expansion, GNG’s selection of personal care products for hair care, skin care, toothpastes etc., will be greatly expanded, as will the gluten-free section. The healthy pet food department will triple in size and many new options will be added in the organic wine and beer section.

Greens ‘N Grains is Door County’s only full-service natural food store, offering a complete line of groceries including bulk nuts and grains, spices, organic coffees and teas, healthy pet foods as well as a full selection of cleaning products that are environmentally friendly. GNG has a broad array of supplements and herbs, protein powders and other nutritional products to help the consumer take control of their own health. The store proudly offers many locally grown and manufactured products including as much local produce as possible. At present they stock local, sustainably grown salad greens, spinach, kale, swiss chard by Cherrydale Farm and local sprouts and wheatgrass juice. They also sell local eggs, beef, chicken and even local yak burgers.

The construction is being undertaken in the most sustainable way possible. Birmingham Builders of Sturgeon Bay is carefully removing doors and windows and reusing them. They are pulling nails and reusing lumber, trim materials, insulation, plumbing fixtures, etc. The flooring will be reused as much as possible and new flooring will include sustainably grown bamboo provided by Carpet One of Door County.

The staff of Greens ‘N Grains is grateful for the local support and welcomes requests for new products.

Greens N Grains is open daily from 10 am – 5 pm in downtown Egg Harbor at 7821 Hwy 42. For information call 920.868.9999 email [email protected], or visit
