    I don’t unless its on sale for a lower price. Or if i am hosting a family that only eats orgsnic. I think most of it is hype, and most regular food growers are already working on keeping their produce clean. I buy local when i get the opportunity and in season when i have time to cook that way.

    We try to buy organic when we can. I think spinach is the one organic produce that we get all the time though.

    I buy organic whenever possible, but especially my son’s food and fruit.

    Yes, some. We have a store just down the street that sells organic products…from Ontario. Like vegetables, fruit, honey… things like that.

    No I don’t buy organic. Around here its just too costly with the budget I have to work with.

    I try to buy organic whenever possible. Unfortunately, it’s still too expensive, though!
