It has been talked about recently whether organic food is of benefit or not. Some say it is better for you, others say it costs too much and getting a standard product is just the same, there is no difference.
I have to say I’m not sure, however I do believe in shopping locally. My local town has a regular food market, selling a wide variety of produce, including fruit, vegetables, near, fish, cakes, breads, pastries and much more.
All items are reasonably priced and I love the atmosphere and the general friendliness of the people when you buy. Keeps the community atmosphere alive I feel which is a very good thing.
I conscientiously try to shop from the market to ensure all my ingredients are fresh. You receive a good peace of mind knowing where the produce has come from. As to whether it is organic I’m not sure. However, I believe if you shop local and fresh that’s as good as organic to me.
If in doubt, shop local and support your towns market/local store/farmers market to receive excellent produce without the huge price tag.
