Here's the rundown of options for healthy food shopping.
Good Earth Market gets good reviews. It is on Rt. 1 in Rehoboth--sort of near Dewey Beach.
Good News Natural Foods and Grub Grocery Pub both have convenient locations for on the way home from Rehoboth Beach. Grub is more of a sandwich-to-go place. Lingo's Market is also a favorite in downtown Rehoboth Beach; it's been around a long time.
There are two wonderful farmers' markets:
Lewes has theirs on Saturday mornings. (Not so great when people are arriving and leaving our house on a Saturday)
Rehoboth Beach has theirs on Tuesday afternoons.
The 4 largest grocery stores in the area all have some natural foods and organic selections.
Giant is the closest to the house.
Harris Teeter is just a bit further than Giant.
Super Fresh is a good one for on the way home from the beach if you are coming from the Lewes Town Beach or Cape Henlopen State Park. Super Fresh is my favorite large grocery store in the area.
Safeway is probably not the best for organic choices, in my opinion.
For the following I don't know if these are organic, but they are good:
Ann's Produce is very near the Angola By the Bay community where One Particular Harbor is located. Ann closes at 6 PM, sometimes 5:55 PM. I love the convenience of being able to pick up some fresh produce right near the house. She's at 32747 Angola Rd. Lewes, DE, 19958.
Hopkins Farm Creamery is probably not organic, or they would say so on their website. But we sure do love their fresh ice cream and their cows watching us while we scarf down their sundaes.
And if you are looking for the freshest just-picked sweet corn, go to the corner of Plantation and Robinson Road where you can often find a farmer selling corn under his shade tent. I almost didn't post that info because it feels like such a local secret. Sorry locals! All around in the countryside you can find little produce stands near the farms. I am hungry for that fresh sweet corn right now!
