Organic Food Stores in St. Louis

By May 25, 2010

Follow me on:

My wife was very interested in the study that came out last week showing a possible link between pesticides and an increased risk of ADHD in children. Of course, one way to limit your kids' exposure to pesticides is to buy organic foods. St. Louis now has a growing number of stores that sell a variety of organic products. Here are some of the markets where you can find organic and locally grown foods in St. Louis:

Whole Foods - 1601 S. Brentwood or 1160 Town and Country Crossing Dr.

Sappington Farmers Market - 8400 Watson Road

Local Harvest Grocery - 3148 Morganford

The Natural Way - 8110 Big Bend or 12345 Olive Boulevard

Golden Grocer - 335 North Euclid

Seasonal farmers markets also offer many organic and local foods. For more on where to find one near you, see my article on Top Farmers Markets in the St. Louis Area.

The 1 And Only Restaurant – St. Ann, Missouri

“Heaven on Earth”

I can’t say enough about the atmosphere AND the Organic / Natural food at The 1 And Only. Tracy and Tom, the owners are phenomenal people. They openly share their spirituality with you when you visit in a comfortable and appropriate way.

There is an air of peace and happiness in the restaurant that I’ve never experienced in any other eating establishment.

Tom and Tracy cook and bake your meal right on site while you wait. And it is certainly worth the wait. Homemade rolls, jams/jellies/preserves, salads, soups, entrees, desserts that are made with love and with your health in mind.

You can even buy organic eggs that come from a local free range farm. Just remember to bring an empty egg carton:)

Take time out from your hectic day – to renew your spirit at this very special place.

Every time I have been there I’ve left feeling uplifted and centered. There aren’t too many places – outside of a place of worship – or nature – that has that effect on my soul.

Enjoy and recharge at The 1 And Only.
