    with Valley Natural Foods, which is a local store in Burnsville MN, when I want specific things (honey, free range poultry, etc.)

    Other great places are co-ops and farmers' markets.

      The DC area is dominated by big supermarket chains.  I do go to the year round Falls Church farmer's market but you can't get everything there.

      To me the video is a tempest in a teapot, a local employee makes a statement likely based upon wrong assumptions.  I don't think corporate made any claims about GMO foods not being in Whole Foods.  I assume that if I'm eating ANYTHING with corn I'm eating GMO food.

      I'm wary of corporate GMO food because I fear that monocultures might bite us down the road but those freaking out over GMO misunderstand what it is.  I'm simply concerned that we don't have enough diversity in plant varieties due to the dominance of companies like Monsanto.
