When you go to the grocery store do you always look for organic products or do you just look for fresh things . be it organic or not. When i go, i look for farm fresh green leafy vegetables and there is a store near my place, where they keep bundles of green leafy vegetables and bring fresh everyday. i prefer that to other one. it is really good. what do you prefer?

I don't buy fruit, vegetables, eggs or milk from the supermarket but buy it all from local farm shops. Seasonal and local foods are far tastier, healthier and cheaper than the foods on the supermarkets shelves, of which around 70% have been imported from all over the world. These store bought and much travelled products not only taste less vital and fresh than local produce but the transport of them creates more pollution and uses up valuable fossil fuels, also the amount of packaging is wasteful and often un-recyclable.

I don't particularly look for organic products.I buy what looks fresh from the supermarket.But in a supermarket everything costs too much.Of course once in a while I manage to buy some fruits and vegetables from local farm shops.

I am lucky enough to live in an area where there are many farm shops for me to get lovely fresh fruit and veg, milk, meat and eggs.

I grow some of my veggies and know they are organic. As for the rest, I donĀ“t trust that the expensive ones that say they are organic really are as good as they say. So I tend to check with my eyes and buy within my means.

I rarely eat organic. I usually go with what's cheapest just because I don't ever have a lot of money to shop with! Sad but true! I'd like to eat organic, but it's just not in my budget!!
