Nebraska Vegan May be Spoiled: Jane's Health Market

Sometimes I wish there was a magical place in Omaha where I could get caramel booty, tings, Go Max Go candy bars, Primal Strips, Stonewall Jerky,tofu salad and fresh vegan chocolate chip cookies.

Oh wait, there is.

Jane's Health Market is a combination grocery store, deli and supplement store. You can meet all of your vegan needs (tofu, tempeh, nooch) and wants (Temptation Cookie Dough Ice Cream) here. The store has an excellent selection of vegan wants including the sought after Go Max Go bars in all four flavors, Zen Soy pudding, kombucha, coconut milk, coconut milk ice cream bars and veggie booty, among other previously mentioned (and unmentioned surprise) items.

In addition to this wide selection, Jane's deli also has a wide range of vegan selections. From house-made hummus to tofu salad to manna tofu-all fresh, all delicious. The bakery at Jane's provides vegans with chocolate chip cookies to round the meal out. Jane's has also been exploring the raw side of life and has been offering raw lasagna, raw tacos, raw nachos and raw truffles. It is surprisingly easy to spend an afternoon nibbling at the deli and chatting with Jane and Jim, the owners of Jane's Health Market, as well as their lovely employees.

Jane's also offers freshly juiced wheatgrass, something that can be tough to find in Omaha. If you prefer your health boost in pill form, Jane's offers a huge range of vitamins and supplements, as well as a staff who can help you out while you wander through the aisles.

In addition to all of this, Jane's also offers a massive selection of beauty products, from No Miss Nail Polish to Preserve Toothbrushes. If you need a vegan lotion, shampoo, conditioner, etc., Jane's can hook you up.

There's also an aisle of eco-friendly cleaning supplies such as Seventh Generation and Method products.

I could go on, but what's the point? You should be convinced by now. Jane's is located at 61st and Maple in the historic Benson district of Omaha, Nebraska, near The Waiting Room. Go pick some stuff up.
