In the area grocery chains in Potsdam, there seems to be a real lack of natural, organic and vegetarian options. This problem is resolved by the small grocery store that is the food co-op located in the heart of downtown Potsdam. Here they sell many fresh or frozen healthy food options like that you would find in a store like WHole Foods or Trader Joe's (those chains unfortunately do not exist up here). The prices are very reasonable here as well. The staff if also very friendly and willing to help you find what you need.
