You work really hard at your local Bettendorf Crossfit Gym but getting yourself into the best shape of your life means putting in work outside the gym and in your kitchen too. As of late, Bettendorf, and the Quad Cities as a whole, hasn’t had many options in the way of Natural Grocery Stores. Some of our local Grocery Store chains have picked up on the Health Food trend and added sections into their stores for those looking for less-processed, more natural options but these natural, in-store sections have remained rather pricey. Lucky for us, in 2017 a couple dedicated Natural Grocerers decided to open new stores in the Bettendorf area. And just to make it super easy, we’ve compiled that list of Natural Grocery Stores here. Worry no more about where you’ll find affordable, fresh food!
