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.
