Shop Local 2012
Presenting the best independently owned health and beauty shops, farmers' markets and food co-ops in Morris and Essex Counties
HERE’S A BEAUTY SECRET: When it comes to creating a better you, there’s no reason to venture beyond downtown. That’s because the local businesses we highlight on the next few pages offer the kind of warmth and hospitality you’re unlikely to encounter at a national chain, with products and services tailored to a discerning local clientele. We searched Morris and Essex counties to bring you dozens of the best health and beauty shops and healthy-food markets, and nary a one entails a trip to the mall. Remember that independently owned local businesses return 45 percent of each dollar you spend back into the community, while national chains may only contribute 20 percent of the same buck. That makes shopping locally a good deed as well as a pleasure. So go and get yourself happy, healthy and gorgeous—but don’t go too far.
