    Best Organic Flower Shop

    Well, there’s not many to choose from, but even if there were, the best organic flower shop in town would have to go to Gaia.

Gaia’s walls are filled with local arts and crafts, and owner Peter Frigeri specializes in environmentally responsible floral arrangements.
