Find an Organic Restaurant Near You

Posted on April 4, 2008 by Allie

Eat locally.  Eat organic.  Support local business.  Eat at eco-friendly restaurants.  Great advice, but how do you go about finding a local organic restaurant? 

Try Local Harvest’s Restaurant Finder.  All you have to do is type in your zip code and Local Harvest will give you a list of organic restaurants in your area.

Know of a restaurant in your area that specialize in local, organic and sustainable food?  Let Local Harvest know, or let the restaurant know so they can contact Local Harvest and help grow the database.

Going on vacation this spring?  Check the restaurant finder before you go and eat well while you travel.  Check the database for friends and family and send them a list of restaurants.  Spread the word.

  3. Hmm. I know of a vegan place near me, but I suppose that doesn’t necesarily make it organic, right? Does it help that I sometimes shop at Whole Paycheck… err, I mean Whole Foods?

  8. Ten Tables, Jamaica Plain MA, tries to use local organic produce and meat in their menu and they keep it seasonal. Small place, romantic, GREAT food.

  9. There’s one place on the list where I live, but I know there are a few more that should be on the list. I think once this database grows it will be awesome.

Tip of the Day

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It


According to Real Simple, if every American made an effort to launder less — cutting out just one load of laundry a week per household — we’d save enough water to fill seven million swimming pools each year.

So if it looks clean, and it smells clean, call it clean and wear it again. Consider hanging worn clothes out on your clothesline to freshen them up between wearings.
