For those interested in more-natural food choices it can be difficult to find what you are looking for in a regular market. Whether you are seeking organic and non-GMO produce, snacks without preservatives, vitamins without food coloring, or natural deodorants and toothpaste, it can be found in Saint George and the surrounding areas. As the demand for such products increases, businesses answer the call. Big stores like Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods have not opened up in Washington County yet. perhaps the demand for such a store may not be large enough for them in our area, buy you can still find smaller health food markets in Saint George. Dixie Nutrition has provided us with a small selection of produce, snacks, vitamins and much more for decades, but there are at least two more sources in town now.
