Here in the small enclave of Collegedale, home of the Southern Adventist University, there is a hidden gem that provides vegetarian and natural products for everyone that knows about it.  The lifeblood of the community of Collegedale is the university and McKee's Bakery, home of the Little Debbie brand of snacks.

The university is a Seventh Day Adventist instituition, and this religion places a lot of emphasis on health and a vegetarian lifestyle, so, it was a natural that this small grocery market would be here.   Located at 5002 University Dr. in the Fleming Plaza, this little store is packed fulll of everything that someone living this type of lifestyle could want.

There is an isle of vegetarian meat products, one with essential oils, vitamins and supplements and my favorite part;  natural and local products such as honey and peanut butter.  They also have an organic section and a vast array of bulk food items such as rolled oats, almonds and beans that I didn't even know existed.  It is a fascinating place to visist!  Looking for a good quality juicer or mixer?  The Village Market has thos too.

If you are coming to the area and you have an interest in these lifestyle choices, than be sure not to miss out on a visit to the Village Market.  Their hours are generally 8-8 and closed on Saturaday.  Friday closing time is 4 p.m. so that those wishing to observe Sabbath can do so.  If you would like to give them a call their telephone number is: 423-396-2300.  If you need assistance finding a home in the area, than call me.  I am a local real estate broker that knows the area well.(423-785-7768) See you at the Village Market!

Hi Gayle,

When I was living in Oregon, with my first husband, I called him up at work and told him I had signed him up for a "quit smoking program and that he could cancel if he wanted to."  It was put on by the Seventh Day Adventists and they had an excellent program.  They also tied it to a study with the University of Oregon to see if early signs of emphysema could be reversed when someone quit smoking.  So, after all of the lectures and graphic movies he quit smoking.
