We all know eating natural and organic foods is one of the wisest health choices we can make. While many grocery stores offer a natural food aisle, or some organic brands, the variety of health foods at natural food stores is unrivaled. Have you considered shopping at natural health stores? Suffolk County has quite a few!
Whole Foods Lake Grove (Holistic Moms of suffolk holds also meeting here once a month) and don’t miss their salad and deli bar for delicious treats. Samples are available throughout the store with more on weekends.

Don’t forget seasonal farmers markets which you can find in many towns. However, the listings I researched online weren’t accurate and changed annually, so I recommend a google search as the season starts (in May) and keep your eye out in the local papers for listings. Here are a few more popular ones, but know that info and offered days may change.
