We all know the benefits of eating organic (or ‘bio’) food–no synthetic pesticides, no GMOs, no antibiotics or hormones…and the list goes on. When you think about all the by-products that could potentially go into our food, it makes sense to be a bit more thoughtful about the items we buy. We luckily live in a country that already has high standards and pretty thorough regulatory procedures, but it’s still nice to have the option to buy all-natural & organic products when we want them (whether it means food, cosmetics, or homeopathic remedies). We decided to make a list of our favorite spots in town to buy bio, and we hope you find it helpful!
