Natural & Organic Foods

In a world where ingredients and labeling can be overwhelming, health conscious shoppers have come to see Dave's Fresh Marketplace as a healthy alternative. Whether a food is "natural" or "organic," you can bring it home from Dave's with peace of mind. We understand and respect our customers, and strive to stay on the cutting edge of a constantly changing world.

At Dave's, natural, organic and specialty foods are never separated, and banished to a section of their own! You'll find gluten-free soup in the soup aisle, organic cereal in the cereal aisle and natural gingersnaps taking their righteous place alongside the "other" cookies.

Naturally, You Can Find It at Dave's

How do you put a definition to "natural foods?" Let's say that they're foods grown and brought to you "the way they used to be." These foods - from cereals, to yogurt, to pasta sauce - are minimally processed, with no manufactured ingredients. Although there are no regulations in place to qualify what can be called "natural," you can be sure that there are no hormones, antibiotics, sweeteners, food colorings or flavorings that weren't in the food originally.

Organics is Not Just a Word

USDA Organic Seal

It's a label that demands compliance. The USDA upholds strict standards, and farms must pass inspection to earn "Organic" status. And the rules apply, even if the grapes were grown in Chile or the coffee comes from Columbia. As today's informed consumers can attest:

  • Organic meat, poultry, eggs and dairy products come from animals raised with absolutely no antibiotics, no growth hormones, no additives, and no synthetic chemicals.
  • Crops grown organically are free from most conventional pesticides.
  • Organic farmers use renewable resources to run their farms, dedicating themselves to environmental quality by conserving soil and water.

And so, there's no such thing as being "a little organic." A food either is or it isn't! At Dave's, we think that's really cool.

Fair Trade Products: Good for the World

See those symbols on some products on Dave's shelves that have to do with "Fair Trade?" Each time you purchase one, you show your support for this worldwide social movement that:
