If the sight of dented boxes and damaged labels at Community Foods shocks you, remember: It's what's on the inside that counts. Community Foods sells slightly damaged organic and natural groceries, stuff that's not pretty enough to line the shelves at Whole Foods but is still perfectly edible and incredibly cheap. The charming little store smells of herbs and dried grains, and even if you can't find the product you're looking for, you're sure to find something: organic mung beans and orzo rosamarina for $1.50; natural pet food at 50 cents to 75 cents a can; organic cereals for $2. Just beware, weekend shoppers, the religious tribe that runs the place keeps Sabbath on Saturday. The store closes at 3 p.m. on Friday and doesn't reopen until Sunday morning.
