Organic Fresno [Hwy 99]
Last Monday I was headed south on Highway 99 and spotted Organic Fresno’s roadside sign tucked among a motel row. The next exit was right there so I pulled off for a quick recon.
The man who greeted me warmly was somewhat apologetic that they were sold out of many items after a busy weekend. Pastured eggs, $5/dozen, all gone. Baked goods, fresh juices, not yet replenished, but I was pleased to hear that the community is supporting the concept. The full menu is online.
I got a “Flow”, $3, for the road. This was water kefir with hibiscus tea. Aromatic, barely sweet, and naturally carbonated, the perfect refresher.

A colleague and I recently had lunch here enroute to Santa Barbara from Merced. Pace was a bit leisurely due to the fact that our meals were made to order; service was excellent and friendly.
Both lunches started with a vegetable bean soup, which was delicious, and a simple, perfectly dressed salad of fresh greens. Colleague had a wrap (can't remember which one) and I had the chicken tikka masala, tasty but not memorable. There were a lot of baked goods at the counter but we didn't indulge. Colleague did buy some natural dried fruit for the road. Lunch here definitely fit the bill as a healthy alternative to either diner food or fast food, to keep us going on the long road trip.
