Do you buy locally organic foods?

 If so, what fruits and vegetables do you buy? Do you feel it's worth the extra price?

I love to hit the local farmers' markets. I tend to go by the skin/no skin. If I can peel a skin off, I don't buy organic. Things that we eat the skin usually are organic.

I buy from the farmer's market whenever I can.  But, it's really hard to get there with my daycare schedule.  It may not always be organic, but it is local.  As far as organic, If they have what I need in an organic when I go to the grocery store, I will ALWAYS get the organic.

I buy from a strawberry stand that is organic.  I love it.  A lot of times the strawberries are still warm from the fields.  Yummy!

We grow a lot of our own to avoid having to buy any at all.  And then we know it's organic.

But other than that I don't really have many buying choices around here.

 I don't buy them. I raise them in my garden and it is well worth it.

During the summer and fall growing seasons, whatever the local organic farmer has that we like.

We don't live too far from a lot of farms so we buy when we can get out there!
