Hi,
I am wondering if the Columbus area has a decent selection of organic food stores, farmers markets, people who are into non-toxic living, environmentalists, etc.? I know there are a couple of Trader Joe's. In general, are some areas better than others for this?
Thank you!

Sawmill road area around UA has a Trader Joes and Whole Foods. In general just about all parts of the city and its burbs has some kind of organic store.

In my time in Columbus, it seemed Clintonville had a number of things you are asking about: Farmer Market, local grocery co-op, and is a generally left leaning, progressive area of town. Whole Foods isn't too far away in Upper Arlington or on Sawmill Road.

Clintonville is the area most often associated with "green" living. There are two Trader Joe's, two Whole Foods and a number of smaller organic co-ops. There are also a number of local CSA programs that deliver to Columbus some of which are organic.

In the summer many of the communities have farmers markets: the Clintonville market and the Worthington market are bigger than most others. And the Pearl Alley Markets operate year round I believe: Welcome to the Pearl Market · Pearl Market · Downtown Columbus

In short it is here if you look for it.

There's so many local market type places, farmers markets (clintonville, worthington, grandview, campus even!), the greener grocer, hills market, pearl alley market, north market, etc etc. There are also a lot of locally/organic sourced restaurants. Def. a happening thing in Columbus right now, and I don't see it going away.

The Clintonville Community Market is pretty awesome for that stuff - pricey, but almost entirely organic. If you're looking for a sort of hippy-ish vibe, Clintonville is definitely the place to move.
