What do your groceries look like? Here's a picture of mine below.

I try to buy organic foods as much as possible a few sources. Where can you find organic produce on island?
Healthy Hearts in Dededo recently began offering fresh organic produce. To get on their mailing list for notifications when organic produce would be available, please email Healthy Hearts at firstname.lastname@example.org
I bought organic rainbow kale and oranic portabello mushrooms. They were so fresh and so delicious. I did not wonder what pesticides and herbicides lurked on the surface of my food. I did not wonder what chemicals were inside the food. I did not wonder how much I needed to wash the vegetables. I simply washed, cooked and enjoyed! There is something sweet and wonderful about organic veggies!
Payless at Micronesian Mall has a small organic produce section. The fresh produce availability is sporadic. I have seen organic lemons, apples, pears, bananas, lettuce, carrots, and cauliflower. But they only appear mysteriously, on some unkown schedule. However, you can usually find frozen organic produce like peas, carrots, edemame (soybeans), spinach, green beans, and mushrooms.
Canned organic foods can be found at Payless at Micronesian Mall, Healthy Hearts in Dededo, and Simply Food in Agana Heights. Packaged organic frozen meals can be found at Simply Food and Payless.
Recently I heard of an organic farm in Yigo, Guam, but no one could give me anymore information on this. I will keep you updated if I find out more.
Thanks to everyone that supports the organic produce providers, so we can continue to have fresh organic foods on Guam!
