Country Sun: An All-Natural Alternative to Whole Foods
Think that Whole Foods—a “progressive” corporate behemoth—is a contradiction? Would you prefer to “shop local” and also get the kind of all-natural fruits, vegetables, granola, and other environmentally friendly, socially responsible offerings that the retail mega-conglomerate is famous for? Then try visiting Country Sun Natural Foods.
Since 1971, this scrappy establishment has ensured that when you buy something that promotes itself as local, natural, and organic—it is precisely that. There are no small-print caveats and if you see a non-GMO certification or a "USDA Organic" stamp of approval on a product, you can be sure that it isn’t merely a misleading marketing gimmick. In addition, this small outfit has a very generous supply of all-natural vitamins and supplements for discerning shoppers.
It is not nearly as comprehensive a supplier as Whole Foods, but when you shop at Country Sun, you know you won’t be compromising on your values.
