Buying organic products can prevent biting into an apple decorated with DDT, a sandwich slathered in MSG, or a soup chock full of ABCs. Spell out healthy eating with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of organic groceries, juice, and more at Bell Bates Natural Food Market in Tribeca.
Originally established in 1885, Bell Bates Market has spent the last century building a healthy empire with more than 6,000 square feet of organic, vegetarian, and gluten-free selections. While perusing aisles full of organic groceries, visit the salad bar and load up on vegan, vegetarian, and organic selections ($6.99/lb), or slide over to the juice bar and throw back shots of organic wheatgrass ($3.99 for 2 oz.) while relaying stories of the Alamo to the juicekeep. Empty kitchen cabinets and rumbling stomachs will delight in selections of organic herbs and spices ($1.99+), Stonyfield Farm yogurt ($.99 each), produce, vitamins, deli eats, and items for gluten-free, specially restricted, and celery-only diets.
