View Full Version : finding all organic foods
07-24-2009, 04:49 PM
I'm having issues finding all my foods organic. I can't find organic cucumbers,watermelon,greens. Lately the stores have been really well stocked and price wise really good, strawbarries-1.79 organic while the regular ones where a dime more:) Does any one here just use normal fruits and veggies if organic can't be found? I hate the taste of the non organic f&v but in juice it would be not as noticed.

we have an organic delivery service here... perhaps check that out in your area?

I haven't seen any co ops at all in my area, nor health food stores that sells fresh foods.

are there any farms near by? if you're in america perhaps look in the yellow pages and phone some farms and ask them if they have organic or know of any locals. and/or ask the manager at your grocery store who their distributor is and if they'll special order. sometimes local small markets go to a bigger place where stuff comes in and they pick out what they want rather than phone ordering.
perhaps google some places that are near by that sell food and ask them as well.
normal fruits and veggies are organic btw ;) and yeah many people do eat pesticide stuff if the other can't be found and some won't touch it. it's a personal choice.

If it's on the dirty dozen list, I don't get it if I can't buy it organic. Everything else, I don't worry about.
