USA: Cities Obsessed Over Organics

It used to be that a diet high in organic leafy greens would be considered typical only for a select few. But as it turns out, eating organic food is a growing priority nationwide. As reported in a 2014 Gallup study, 45% of Americans actively seek out organic foods. More recently, a new study commissioned by Campbell Soup Company and Sperling’s Best Places analyzed the most organic-eating cities in America. According to their findings, these are the 10 most organic cities in America: 1. Portland, 2. San Francisco, 3. Providence, 4. Sacramento, 5. Minneapolis, 6. Boston, 7. Seattle, 8. Austin, 9. Philadelphia, 10. Washington. The study analyzed more than 6,500 online survey results as well as Yelp search results for “organic grocery stores” and “organic restaurants.” Researchers also considered a city’s amount of local farmers’ markets and community-supported agriculture groups as well as the buying habits of consumers at grocery stores across the country.
