I am moving to the Jacksonville area in the next few weeks and am wondering if there are any stores that sell organic groceries? Most important would be produce... I know there is not a Whole Foods or anything nearby but most grocery stores now have at least some organic stuff. Just wondering if anyone knows the best place to go. Thanks!

I'm sorry, I can't give any advice from experience about Jacksonville itself. However, you might want to check out Tidal Creek Co-op in Wilmington. It's probably the closest thing you'll find to a Whole Foods without going to Raleigh area. In my opinion, it would be worth the drive to Wilmington every few weeks to stock up.

Also, an educated guess- In Wilmington, both Lowe's Food and Harris Teeter carry a decent organic selection. In other cities, Kroger usually carries a good bit, as well. I've never been to Jacksonville, so don't know what stores they have, but if you get there and see any of those... you might want to pop in and have a look.

The Food Lion on Gum Branch Road has the largest natural foods section of any grocery store in town. I am also involved in several natural/organic food co-ops or buying clubs which have inexpensive access to vegetables, meats, grains, and packaged foods as well, so e-mail me if you need any more information!
