Review of Joe’s, Organic Study, Portland Brew Fest

Today’s Press Herald includes a front page article that examines why people buy organic in light of a recent study that found no difference in nutritional value,

“I tend to buy organic because of the impact conventional farming has on the environment and the pesticides that are in a lot of conventionally grown food,” said Anna Korsen of Portland, who shopped Wednesday at the farmers market in Monument Square with her 2-year-old son, Arlo Korsen-Cayer. “I don’t want that in my body or my family’s bodies.”

Today’s paper also contains a report on last week’s Portland Brew Festival, and a review of Joe’s NY Pizza.
