I'll be in the SoHo area before heading to JFK airport. Are there any healthfood stores or organic markets near Lafayette or Prince Streets... where I can grab a quick (but healthy) bite??

Thanks for your help!

    Have you tried looking on Yelp or Foursquare?

    For example, this looks promising:

    Spring Street Natural is nearby but a sit-down restaurant.

      Spring Street Natural is kind of underwhelming. Last time I went there (admittedly, that could have been a couple of years ago), our waiter pointedly told us when we asked that THEY don't let him try any of the food, so he couldn't personally recommend anything. That's the mark of an unserious restaurant.

      The juice press at 250 mott is fairly close and they have raw vegan prepacked foods, at dean and deluca you could get some fresh fruit and veg for snacks and order something to go from spring st natural

        There's a Gourmet Garage at Broome & Wooster, 7ish blocks from Prince & Lafayette. They have some ready-to-eat stuff, much of it pretty healthy.

          There is a Whole Foods on Houston and Bowery, not too far from Soho---maybe a 5 minute walk from Lafayette/Prince.
