More and more people are becoming interested in eating locally grown, organic produce. The problem can be affording such food. While it is better for you and the environment, the price tag is not better for your wallet. Rather than shopping at your local organic store or shopping the overpriced organic section in your local grocery store, consider working directly with a local organic farmer.

If you are looking to buy more organic fruits this year, don’t feel that you must limit your purchases to those at grocery stores.
