When is area going to get a grocery story like Whole Foods, Central Market, or Sun Harvest. Surely there are enough people to support it there. I was surprise that smaller cities have COSTCO and the area does not. Is the city really that behind the times. This area has some of the best seafood prices in America it just does not gives.

Probably never. Shreveport doesn't measure up to the demographics required for Whole Foods and the other two I'm not familiar with. WF is in Dallas and many people go to those as it is closest here. This I have seen in print somewhere about thos e demographics.

Oh sure I would like a WF or a Trader Joes's to come, but the chances are slim to none one is going to show up. I just don't think Shreveport or metro Shreveport has a growth rate that will make way for it. The politicians and the citizenry both are the easiest people to please. They like Wally, Kroger, and Brookshires and barely hanging on Albertsons. Lucky to have those here.

Kroger and Brookshires and Super Target sell some organic food. Maybe someone can tell us more. I don't buy but I do see it in the stores.

The Olde Wheat Barn I believe has a good selection of OF and possibly Good News health food on Hearne ave. The first place is actually located in Ruston about 65 miles east of here.
