The trendy way to buy groceries has shifted from upscale grocery stores and supermarkets to aesthetically pleasing and well maintained organic food markets that are a clean combination of throwback general stores mixed with foods that appeal to the health conscious community.
The term "organic" is to food what the word "vintage" is to clothing, at least as far as how it is haphazardly to describe a particular genre within their respective categories. "Vintage" to some not in the know means "hip," "cool" or "classic" when truthfully most clothing that falls under that banner is simply old.
Those not quite sure what organic means often refer to all foods that are healthy as "organic," when actually the term focuses more so on the lack of pesticides in fruits and vegetables and animals such as cows and chickens are only fed organic feed and are devoid of hormones and not treated in any way with antibiotics.
Some of the aforementioned adjectives mentioned have found their way into major marketing such as "antibiotic free" chicken and "hormone free" beef. But while health-food junkies clamor over everything organic, the question remains: Does something being "organic" truly worth the added expense and extra time of opting to ditch the rudimentary grocery store in favor of an organic market?
The answer is quite cut-and-dry and wavers between both "yes" and "no," with the key component being education for the organic community and those who want to be part of that clientele. The biggest red flag is customers who believe that everything must be organic, when in actuality not all foods need to carry the "organic" tagline.
