I made the switch to organic apples a few years ago. In the fall I like to buy local organic apples at the farmers’ market, but I can also get them (usually U.S.-grown) at Superstore (pretty much any supermarket should have them– or if they don’t– ask!) year-round. For example, I recently bought a 3-lb bag of Granny Smiths for 3.99. That’s $1.25/lb– hardly unreasonable. Skip out on buying that bag of tortilla chips and you can easily afford the difference in price between conventional and organic. 😉
It was after I read Michael Pollan’s book Botany of Desire that I started buying organic potatoes, too.
Do you buy anything organic?
