Organic Restaurant Stocks – Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) – Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) is healthy restaurant chain that strives to use organic and heathly foods when possible. CMG is trading close to $700 per share so you might want to buy NDLS instead. Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. (CMG) develops and operates fast casual and fresh Mexican food restaurants. Its restaurants primarily offer burritos, tacos, burrito bowls, and salads. As of 2015, the company operated over 1,700 restaurants.

Noodles & Company (NDLS) – NDLS uses organic products like organic tofu. This fast growing restaurant stock is only trading at $26 and I feel in 5-10 years the price will be $100-$200.
Organic Stock Picks 2015 – Grocery Stores – Whole Foods (WFM) is the top organic grocery food store. Most of their products are organic and they make is very clear what is organic and what is not. The same cannot be said for The Fresh Market. Whole Foods Market (WFM) stock is currently trading at $52 with a 2015 price target of $70. Whole Foods (WFM) is expensive on a price to earnings ratio but you are paying up for the growth…and yes, WFM is a growth stock.
The Fresh Market (TFM) – The Fresh Market (TFM) is another health food grocery store stock pick that is high growth. The Fresh Market (TFM) only has a market cap of $1.85 billion with a share price of $37. I like the way the health food stores are set up but they make it hard to figure out which foods are organic. All natural foods are very different than organic and I wish they would make it easier to figure out. TFM is a good investment below $30 per share.
