A bright light in an otherwise dim economy, GreenStar's Oasis continues to perform beyond expectations. Oasis Manager Cilla Cartland cites physical improvements, thoughtful product offerings and, most importantly, great customer service as the reasons why.
GreenStar members voted by a 3-to-1 margin in early 2004 to buy the foundering privately-owned Oasis Natural Foods store located in downtown Ithaca's Dewitt Mall, and GreenStar opened the store as GreenStar Oasis in May 2004. Seven years later, the store is thriving, though there have been some tough times along the way.
GreenStar at DeWitt Mall (Oasis) is a cozy downtown natural foods market nestled in the historic Dewitt Mall, just blocks from Ithaca’s renowned Commons. Whether you’re looking for a hot meal, a few vitamins, your week’s groceries or just a cup of tea, Oasis has got the goods.

Cook up a pot of nourishing stew with our great selection of local produce, beef, tofu, and tempeh. Add local bread and you're set!
The cooler weather has hit, so we're gearing up for soup-and-stew season with some fabulous local offerings. Current produce includes organic delicata squash from Rose Valley Farm, located in Rose, NY; organic green, red, and yellow peppers from Remembrance Farm of Trumansburg; and local cider from Littletree Orchards in Newfield. Our freezers are stocked with local organic beef from Engelbert Farms in Nichols, NY, as well as RK Farms in East Steamburg. We offer uber-local soy products too, including Ithaca Soy tofu and tempeh fare from Vegan Epicure, also right out of Ithaca. Need some crusty bread to go with your soup or stew? We now carry Ithaca Bakery breads at DeWitt, with fresh deliveries on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday.

If you've been missing Challah bread, we get it fresh now on Friday mornings, also from Ithaca Bakery!
