Do You Buy Organic Freggies?

We love, love, love our fruits and veggies up here in FBG land. And although we give extra special love to organic “freggies,” we understand that organic usually means more expensive. Which totally stinks! In the summer, I’m lucky enough to grow a lot of my own veggies and therefore control what goes on them (nothing!), but I’ll admit that it’s hard to pick the organic strawberries when they’re $3 more than the regular ones. If only I could grow strawberries! But, what about you?

    I can not believe consumers buy “organic” foods.
    Pesticide-free foods were labeled as pesticide-free , but people were freaking out because they assumed that meant when they bit into a juicy peach , there were be a half eaten worm left behind.
    A marketing genius came up with changing pesticide-free to organic….human beings are organic for goodness sake !

    I wish people would stop buying into “organic” foods , then maybe the organic will stop being perverted and , the prices of fruits and veggies will go down.

    I voted “nope” but on occasion I do. I will admit to being a cheapskate, which is why I don’t particularly seek out organics. What I wish I did more of is farmers market shopping – but I just can’t seem to work it into my schedule. That’s not because I want organic, but because it would be more local, and I’d be more engaged with the people producing my food.

    I’ve read that it’s actually better for the environment to buy local over strictly organic. Some aren’t lucky enough to live near the few real farms left in this country. Having just returned from a successful trip to our local farmers’ market, I can say I’m glad to be in the lucky group!

    I love buying organic fruits and veggies! Its such a fun experience as I go to the local farmer’s market every sunday to pick up the freshest, in-season eats I can get my hands on, and it is super cheap! I am supporting the local farming industry, getting a bunch of organic, healthy foods, and saving a buck, not to mention getting some excercise walking around with heavy bags full of produce. Its a win-win! :)
