A gift idea that helps support our local organic food suppliers

By Boulder Weekly Staff
Boulder´s Best Organics is an offering from Best Organics, Inc., a primarily woman-owned business that has its roots firmly planted in our city below the Flatirons. The Boulder company offers a wide variety of gift boxes and baskets that will make any recipient both happier and healthier even as the gift helps support our local economy and organic producers. It’s the kind of gift that would make Walter Goldschmidt proud (see “A tale of two cities,” page 11). The company also offers kosher and gluten-free selections. Baskets not found for sale at Alfalfa’s Market in Boulder can be viewed and purchased online at americasbestorganics.com. The following descriptions were edited from the website.
