Tips for Buying Organic on the Cheap

Do you enjoy the taste of organic food but you’re turned off by the price? Organic food sales hit $10 billion in 2003, up from $178 million in 1980. If you’re willing to do some creative shopping and cooking, you can enjoy the freshness and goodness of organic foods without breaking your food budget.

1. Shop at farmer’s markets. Wilmington’s Riverfront Farmers’ Market is open again.
2. Grow your own. And no fossil fuels are used.
3. Shop sales and house brands. Many grocers now have their own organic lines.
4. Buy in season. This way, you can load up on all your favorite organic fruits and veggies, dirt-cheap!
5. Join a co-op. Wilmington’s Tidal Creek offers discounts to members.
