Going Organic in a Town Flooded with Blue Runner Billboards and Popeye's Fried Chicken Commercials
Whether you're a New Orleans resident or just a patron traveling through, finding organic fruits and vegetables at the local grocery stores may deem somewhat problematic in the Big Easy. What the popular Nola groceries (like Rouse's, Zuppardo's and Winn Dixie) do try and carry is next to impossible to find, with organic labeled fruits and vegetables spread out sporadically in random baskets and shelf spaces. Without an actual map to get you through the produce puzzle at these groceries, you might find yourself leaving said grocery store(s) with a lot more confusion and frustration in your cart than actual organic produce. Nonetheless, there is some light at the end of the levee down south, with a few (Whole Foods Market) grocery stores in New Orleans carrying organic fruits and vegetables.
