Last year grocery chain Trader Joe‘s took the top spot for Best health food store/co-op in the Goods & Services group, beating out local favorite Honest Weight Food Co-op.

As the nomination tallies roll in, these two health-conscious markets are neck and neck. Can Honest Weight reclaim the top spot?

This will be one contentious race to watch closely as the battle between grocery chains and local co-ops rages on through the nomination period and voting.

Make sure your voice is heard. Nominate your pick for Best health food store/co-op and find out if your favorite made it to the final voting round by coming back on Feb. 22.
