Organic Travel, we focus on listing places where you can visit and
buy organic and natural foods, places where you can learn more
about organic and sustainable practices, as well as other healthy
places to enjoy. Below are the main categories that are in our
guides, or you can look at our listings by clicking on one of the
States Listings or Worldwide
Natural Food Markets and Delis
We list both small and large natural food markets. We research and
note which markets have delis and/or prepackaged deli food, and we
try to list only markets that offer organic produce, as well as
other organic and natural groceries. We'll also tell you if a
market is vegetarian or if they carry meat, poultry or seafood.
Natural food markets are usually good places to find healthy food
when you are traveling.

restaurants, we believe there will be a much greater choice in the
There are many farmer's markets
across the country. We are continually adding more and more of
these markets, which are great places to find some of the freshest
produce around. Many of the farmer's markets have at least one
farmer's booth that offers either certified organic or
pesticide-free produce. We also list organic farmer's markets that
offer only certified organic produce.

organic farm that is open to the public. We list organic farms
that are open seasonally or year-round which offer organic
produce, either through their on-site farm stand or u-pick. We
also list organic farms that are open just a few times during the
year for special events. Many of the organic farms have guided or
self-guided tours. Visiting an organic farm is one of the best
ways to support organic and sustainable farming.

wineries and breweries to enjoy.

a trial period to make sure that they can do without the
