Organic Groceries in the Quad Cities
When it comes to eating healthy in the Quad Cites, the first thing that should come to mind is “where am I going to buy my healthy food?” The great thing about the Quad Cities, in both Iowa and Illinois, is that there are plenty of grocery stores to purchase healthy and wholesome food from. Personally, I get most of my food from Aldi or Walmart, but I do understand that some individuals enjoy shopping at more “organic” stores as well. Now, I say the term “organic” in quotations, because not everything at the stores we will be discussing below are fully organic. Typically, most of the food items in the store are organic. Regardless, if you are looking for some of the best (mostly) organic grocery stores in the Quad Cities, let’s take a look at where we can shop!
Fresh Thyme: 2130 E Kimberly Rd, Davenport, IA 52807
Fresh Thyme is a fairly new organic grocery store in the grand scheme of the Quad Cities. Fresh Thyme is located just off Kimberly Rd., right next to Hyvee and Planet Fitness. Fresh Thyme is a chain organic grocery store, that offers a wide variety of fresh meats, cheeses cut to your liking, as well as produce, and packaged goods. Most of the foods items are organic, with a few “normal” food options as well. I really like this store, because the layout is very easy to get around, and is usually very low traffic in the store. Fresh Thyme does delivery with Doordash and Instacart, and for full details on hours, feel free to call their phone number at (563) 232-0024 or visit there website here.
Natural Grocers: 3805 E 53rd St, Davenport, IA 52807
Natural Grocers is located just off 53rd St., in Davenport, right next to the movie theater. This location is similar to Fresh Thyme as they offer many of the same organic veggies, meats, and even packaged goods as well. One thing I like about this store is that there is usually someone easily available to help assist you and show you around the store. I have had long conversations with some of the workers about their products and what they have to offer. Unfortunately, this place does not have a “deli” area where you are able to get fresh cut meats and cheeses, as everything is already pre-packaged. Natural Grocers does deliver on Instacart, and for full information on there store, feel free to call (563) 355-4396 or visit there website here.
Heritage Natural Foods: 3875 Elmore Avenue, Davenport, IA 52807 and 1317 6th Ave, Moline, IL 61265
Heritage natural foods is a store located in both Davenport and Illinois. This local organic food store has a wide variety of packaged goods and supplements, most of which are organic. Both of locations have small store fronts, offering a good opportunity to talk with whoever is on staff about the large amount of products available to purchase. Another aspect of this place, is that there is a fruit and smoothie bar, so you can get some awesome smoothies to enjoy while you are shopping. In addition to food supplements, there is a huge scope of lotions, creams, and facial products, making it a go-to place to get some organic topicals. Visit there website here or call there store front below for more information.

Feel free to visit there website here, or call their phone for more information here: (309)-235-1330
Notable Non – Organic Stores
Although Aldi does not have a dedicated “organic” grocery store vibe, they have a large variety of organic items mixed into the store. In addition to this, the prices of Aldi are extremely affordable, making it a perfect option for people who might not be able to afford the prices of a fully organic grocery store. I should note that in particular, the produce section of Aldi is very cheap, with weekly deals on fresh produce always being updated. Aldi locations in the Quad Cities include:
- 5262 Elmore Avenue, Davenport, IA 52807
