Best Organics + Vits in Lamorinda

I've been shopping @ O Sesame weekly for over 10 years and love the local, seasonal, fresh off the truck produce. Love that you can find things here that other markets don't carry on a regular basis. Sue and her crew are at the fruit/vege case constantly refilling bins, and checking freshness of produce. If you don't see it, ask. For ex: the organic wheat grass isn't out in the open, but they have it in various sizes.

Where else can you get beautiful, fresh, local organic nuts if you want to sleep in on Sunday and miss your farmers market? The dried fruits are more plump and delicious than those dried up excuses you get elsewhere.

Sue (owner) has exceptional knowledge of vitamins, homeopath remedies and tinctures and has an impressive inventory of same, stocking the best quality products.

The tea selection is out of this world. Organic anything you want.

Frozen foods carry everything from grass fed beef to my kids favorite thai dinners, and organic out of season frozen veges and fruits.

LOVE the laundry and kitchen products and soaps. No waxy yukky stuff here. Same with personal products, sunscreens, moisterizers, etc.

Service is very quiet, but attentive. If you need help with something just ask and you'll be met with a smile and knowledgeable assistance.

Love the Sesame !!

Miss shopping at Open Sesame

This little store packs a lot of different products into a small space. They have pretty awesome organic produce but sometimes let it sit out too long so watch out for mold. Same with the prepackaged products on the shelves. Some are so old they have a thick layer of dust on them and are well past their expiration date.

They package some of the stuff themselves and do not label it well at all.

Sue, the owner, is very strange. One day she will be very nice and helpful, another day she is cold and rude. The other Asian lady who works there follows Sue's lead. If you ask for help, it is hit or miss if you will get it or get your head bit off.

Some of their prices are actually higher than Whole Paycheck! So it will be cool when the new Whole Foods opens across the street. I feel kind of bad saying that after shopping at Open Sesame for 5 years but the bad customer service days were very bad and coupled with the high prices...well what are you gonna do?
