You don’t have to stick to farmer’s markets for your holiday ingredients. If you want to shop in stores with walls and a roof and tons of packaged products, you can – just know where to go. Below are some of the most ethical grocery stores with nationwide locations:

  • Trader Joe’s. They donate all of their unsold products, use low-plastic packaging and offer fair pay to employees.
  • Sprouts. They focus on local and farm-fresh produce, as well as small-batch treats like snacks and beverages.
  • Natural Grocers. With 159 stores in 20 states, Natural Grocers sells only organic produce as well as antibiotic and hormone-free meats and pasture-raised dairy products.
  • Aldi. Aldi prioritizes stocking local foods, using energy-saving practices and providing workers ethical wages.
