Colle Farmers Market reacts to an article published by Pleasanton Weekly which states the reasons behind the increase of popularity in organic food products.

On February 6, 2013, Colle Farmers Market makes a statement concerning an article published by the Pleasanton Weekly website asserting reasons why organic food is preferred among many shoppers.

Jeb Bing’s Pleasanton Weekly article claims that increased amounts of shoppers are holding a preference for organic foods. The article cites that 40 studies justify the existing preference among shoppers. Additionally, The Organic Center asserted that organically grown produce contained more nutrient value.

Pleasanton residents are reported to have a variety options when it comes to buying organic food, such as Pleasanton’s own Gene’s Fine Foods, Trader Joe’s, and local farmers markets. Another organic food distributor, New Leaf Community Markets, declares that the vast majority of their produce is organic.

In the article New Leaf Community Markets take the stand that, while increased nutrients in organic food is in question, purchasing food not exposed to pesticides, growth hormones, or raised at the expense of animal welfare are reason enough for shoppers to choose organic food. Despite existing controversy, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Organic Center maintain their position on the benefits of organic foods. The article also states that consumption of organic food has the potential to lower risk of developmental disorders and degenerative diseases.

Online directory for organic farmers, Colle Farmers Market, comments on the increase of organic choice and the benefits of choosing organic food over industrial agriculture. “The wide variety of options within the Pleasanton community is commendable. It shows a very progressive move toward consumers showing an increasing awareness toward what they buy and eat. Can one really be blamed for wanting to buy food that hasn’t been exposed to pesticides? Pesticides were designed to harm, it makes sense to avoid putting that in ones body, especially if the body is still undergoing growth and development.”
