Albert and Medeana Hobar promote better nutrition, compassion, and delicious food. Compelled by their desire to offer natural, chemical-free food options to others, the couple opened The Web of Life Natural Foods Market in Westlake, OH seven years ago.
Twelve years ago, Albert was an overweight construction worker. When he decided to go vegetarian, he lost 70 pounds! He’s now a talented organic farmer, selling only organic fruits and vegetables in The Web of Life Market. Believing everyone can make a difference in the world, Medeana educates her customers about vegetarian diet.
This month, in honor of the Great American Meatout, The Web of Life Natural Foods Market will promote the joys and benefits of a plant-based diet! Albert and Medeana will set up an in-store Meatout display and offer meat-alternative samples at their vegan deli.
