Grocery stores that carry organic foods and goods!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I live in San Francisco where organic foods and good are not only readily available but promoted above their commercial counter parts!

I'm curious to know about how people across the country get access to local, sustainable items since it is such an important part of a healthy life style.

In SF I frequent any and all the farmers markets I can plus most of the local grocery stores have produce from Bay Area farms. 

Share your favorite stores and markets below!

That is super cool! I love the idea of combining things into one and NC has a great climate for producing some really nice produce.

I don't think this is really reproducible in an urban environment though...

But I'll be sure to follow the arc of the Farmery and I hope its a success!

I agree that local, sustainable groceries are essential to living a healthy lifestyle. I wanted to share with you a current project being developed in Raleigh, North Carolina. We have recently designed a prototype for a sustainable grocery store called The Farmery, composed of a central greenhouse and shipping containers providing freshly grown herbs and salad greens ready to harvest directly from the store.  We aim to utilize hydroponics, aquaponics, and vertical gardening to create the most efficient, transformative system by combining the farm and the market together making it easy for suburban life to partake in locally grown foods.

We appreciate any feedback! We aim to make our product as common as the local corner store in hopes that it will thrive nationwide. If you are interested in helping to fund our idea, please visit our page on kickstarter - http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1937968320/the-farmery

 

 

That sounds like a great idea!
