Des Moines Area is Making Some Progress

Trying to get Organic food in the Des Moines area over the years has been hit or miss. There have been a few stores that sell organic items, but you have to take out a second mortgage just to pay for them. But over the last year some signs of hope have begun to appear. Hyvee has continued to add more and more organic options to their Health Market and is offering them at some affordable prices. Target Stores have upgraded their organic options, most noticeably, the chip aisle. Yes, without a doubt, Target brand organic tortilla chips are the best out there.... hands down winner!

Some of the most exciting news has come this summer. Trader Joe's announced that they are opening a store in West Des Moines this fall. On top of that, there are now rumors of a possible Whole Foods opening in the area in late 2011. If we get a Whole Foods, that will be a major thing. There will be no more reason to shop at 3 or 4 different stores to get the organic items I need. It will be a one stop shop!

So bright things could be on the horizon for my fellow organic eaters out there. I guess now all that would make life a little better would be me opening my Organic Irish Pub. What could be better than that?
