I have no idea how everybody is getting by, there has to be people living this way that have the same problem as me.
1. Very very expensive to go all organic
2. not available, not an option.
These are the 2 reasons why I cannot go organic.
I already spend ridiculous amounts on my fruit because I buy from woolworths & coles. I know they are ripoff but they have such good quality that I cannot pass.
The reason I am posting is I am hoping I can get a response from a long-timer or somebody that is very educated in this area. I wanna know if the pesticides will get to me in the end, I wanna know if I can eat non organic greens and not pay for it dearly in the end
Yeah Amy I have Fleminton markets but I find the produce there is not as good.. If you have a secret location then share please!:P
Yes! coles and woollies "fresh" produce is very poor quality, although I have seen woolworths now sell their first organic fresh product which are certified organic potatoes.. It's a start!
Sandy are you in Sydney man? I am losing my mind here, I thought the produce at woolies and coles was high quality, where are you and Amy shopping at?
Thank you Sandy much appreciated
im in Perth WA but i am moving to Cairns soon! :D you should move to Cairns too, much better fruit!
i shop at the farmers market and a few other markets too like wholesalers.
Would love 2 Amy but I have to stay in Sydney to support my addiction, addiction to fruit that is:P
Not sure if Queensland has the same work opportunities. So its holidays only for me right now.
where do you work?
I am working as a chemist, I also study at uni. I am in cosmetics so ill get you some shampoo and hair products next time I am in your area:P
Do you have a farmer's market nearby? Have you looked into buying clubs, buying produce in bulk at a discounted rate, asking for any leftover produce? If there is no buying club, maybe see if there are people in the area willing to start one with you, look for a bulk produce supplier that sells to buying clubs--some might sell to individuals but you would probably have to buy A LOT. Good luck!
