Any suggestions? Really looking for fresh, natural peanut butter.

    I don't know of any better bet than Back to the Land, on 7th between Garfield & Carroll.

      For best prices you won't beat the Food Coop, otherwise Back to the Land will surely have it. Union Market is also good but not really "health food" I guess, more upscale items. I think Key Food on 5th Ave has some natural foods. But if you're a serious health food person the Food Coop is the only place to be.

        I think they carry the bazzini nut butters at Sahadi.

          Traditions on 5th Ave between 10th and 11th is a good source - not for that fresh peanut butter, however. I have found other things I've been looking for there...Dr. Praeger's frozen stuff, turbinado sugar, and organic milk at a decent price.

            Take a tour of the Food Coop. I buy all my raw nut butters from them. You might also want to look at the Wysong web page. The same people who make cat food make an awesoume peanut butter for us bipeds as well. They list the ingredients on their site.

              It's not fresh, but as a peanut butter afficionado I would put my vote in for Maranatha Creamy Peanut Butter, which they usually have at Back to the land. It's not too hard, nice and creamy, lots of flavor from roasting and yes, just a pinch of salt.

                You can grind your own at Fairway. Buy the nuts, use the machine
