How available is good organic produce in your area supermarkets...in the USA, that is?
I have to say this…one of the things I adore about living in the UK is that every major supermarket chain (Sainsbury’s, ASDA, Waitrose, Morrison’s) has lots of good fresh organically grown produce.Lots of it. And there are hundreds of “Farm Produce Shops” on country lanes and once-a-week Farmer’s Markets in a lot of town squares that provide even more good, organic products.
Basically, you don’t have to step once into a “Whole Foods” or its ilk to get fresh organic produce. And better than that, I just have to spend about 25 pence to 50 pence more for (say) a bag of organic apples than non-organic equivalents. It’s phenomenal. People here (regular folk) do care a lot about good food and non-GMO food, too.
A friend in the States was lamenting that in most smaller towns (away from large metro areas) it is difficult to source organic produce and health foods. And that getting good organic produce is costly. Is this true?
USA Jellies: If you can buy it in your town’s supermarket (or you know of supermarkets/market towns that have organic produce/foods) which stores do you shop at? Where do you find your organic food/produce in America?
