Back To Earth Health Food Will Transform Into Deli


Closing: Back to Earth, 139 5th Avenue
Back to Earth, the health food market that makes pretty solid smoothies at 139 5th Avenue, on the corner of St Johns Place, will be changing up its business within the next couple weeks. Everything in the shop — from health and beauty products to spices and frozen foods — is currently on sale, to make room in the space, which will focus more on food prep than groceries.

An employee tells us that the owners are staying the same, just transforming the business, which opened in the space in 2011. They’ll put more of an emphasis on food, adding a salad bar and sandwich area, and all those beauty products will be gone.

The change could happen as early as next week, so get your soap while you can, and get ready for a new lunch option on 5th!

  1. I know some people may have different definitions, but I still think of a “deli” as a place that has a “deli counter,” with meats and cheeses, where you can order a sandwich — which this place currently does not have.
