In my opinion, Fairfield is the healthiest town in Connecticut to live in! I challenge any other town to step up to “the plate.”

Places to shop:
Mrs. Green’s Natural Market –Produce is exclusively certified organic and they have a supplement department second to none with Doreen and Frank there to guide you through it. Look for Lorraine -- the heart and soul of the store.
Whole Foods opened this past weekend to massive crowds. The highlights for me were “Brad’s Raw Kale Chips” (and meeting Brad himself), plus the Kombucha Tea on tap! Got me a big bottle of the ginger tea, and I’m almost ready to go back for my discounted refill! I also picked up a huge rain barrel, one of the weekend sales!
is a distant 3rd, some organic options, always helpful and cheerful staff!
Places to eat:
The above mentioned Whole Foods and Mrs. Green’s both offer great food selections for eating in or taking out. Mrs. Green’s has a juice bar where you can also down a wheat grass shot.
Catch A Healthy Habit Cafe is Connecticut's only all raw food cafe, where we only use organic produce and maintain an establishment FREE of dairy, soy and gluten. We also offer an extensive menu of signature juices and smoothies.
Health in a Hurry has been a staple for seven years for organic vegetarian/vegan food to go. Owner Sue Cadwell says, “We are happy to cater any type of event, big or small. We do business meetings, parties, graduations, weddings, or any other event where you want to treat your guests to a health supportive meal.”
The Pantry has a great salad bar and healthier options!

Thankfully, with so many choices, we have the help of the “Fairfield Green Food Guide” to catalogue all of these details and beyond!
There are so many great Naturopathic Doctors in Fairfield as well as Chiropractors, massage therapists and other holistic health practitioners. There are way too many to spotlight here.

Staying in business for over 25 years means you are good. of Self Defense is good! Gyms in town include, Southport Racquet Club, Crossfit Performance, Trifitness, and of course the big box gyms, while not for me maybe for you, The Edge and Planet Fitness. Like to Climb? Carabiner’s is the gold standard for climbing! Need to get trained on a personal level? Camillo Fitness, Charged! , Simply Fit Fairfield. How about Pilates? Zumba? Need a running partner? Join The Pequot Runners! I almost forgot? Fairfield has a , Fitness Center and arguably the best “Boys and Girls Club” in the state! There are also two high school tracks to walk and run on and beautiful beaches to get your Vitamin D from!
No town in Connecticut compares! Now as long as landlords don’t get greedy and property taxes don’t skyrocket, (they are already through the roof) Fairfield will continue to be the best place to practice “You are what you eat, drink, think & exercise!”
