Just a note that if you DO like Costco, one is opening in Coralville, Iowa at the end of this month! That's about a forty minute to an hour drive, depending on which side of the river you're on. If you're into the organic/health food scene, the local HyVees have quite a bit of nice stuff in their Health Market in town and the Farmer's Market downtown is very nice. We do have a coop in town, which may or may not suit your needs; the one in Iowa City/Coralville is likely more the size and selection you would be used to. There are a couple of fields and barns in the QC! 53rd street has a few fields along it still. :P I personally find it funny and awesome both, not backward. Now outside of town, in pretty much any direction, there's pretty much nothing but farm and field until the next town.

At this point in time, if you are a Trader Joe's, Costco or Whole Foods fan you will only find it in Chicago or St. Louis. It will change this fall when TJ's comes to the Peoria area - about 1.5 hours SSE of the Quad Cities.

Davenport to Chicago is 2.5 hrs not 3-4. There is no train to Davenport. Everyone knows that midwestern cities are surrounded by corn fields.

Once again you brought nothing to the conversation.
