The Official Cheap Organic Produce Thread

Guys, since I know you all support Gregor Robertson's antics of bike lanes and a healthy organic Vancouver lifestyle, please post your deals on any cheap organic produce in this thread!

Organic butternut squash is on sale at the Whole Foods Cambie store going for $1.49/lb (regular @ $2.49/lb.)

What a deal!

Do you need a SOM card in order to be eligible for the sale price?

Friend bought it for me and she used a card. So I am not sure. I don't usually shop at these big chain stores. I prefer the M&P and smaller up-and-coming brick and mortar shops who focus on local sustainably sourced products and produce.

Just curious, a loblaws city market opened up near my place. Walked around for a few minutes while passing by. Seems like a whole foods copycat but still retains a lot of save on elements. Opinions?

Since we are on the topic of grocery stores. Anyone been the the No Frills by Cambie x Broadway? No offense but when I walked in there I felt so dirty. Like I was shopping at the lowest of the low. All the fresh produce was cringe worthy. The types of people that were at that location made me feel sorry that they probably haven't tried $4.00 heads of organic garlic from the OK. Anyways the Fraser location isn't as bad, I still wouldn't shop there though. Maybe its just the Cambie x Broadway one that is trashy.

But the people there aren't as trashy as the other location. Regardless, I wouldn't go back, had to buy a specific generic packaged product that can be found at any chain supermarket and it was the closest.

So much for supporting your local mom and pop brick and mortar grocer.

Wasn't shopping by myself or for me. But was asked to pick something up.

Just like people who complain organic items placed in the same room as non organic items negates the organic nature from air contamination.

Also, when it is sub 0 temps outside, where the heck are you going to get local organic produce?

Please don't be spreading false information.

Somethings are worth buying organic and something aren't. I'll usually only buy organic if it's direct from the grower/farm or I grow it myself.

You really can't beat homegrown vegetables. Carrots and tomatoes... mmm...

If it's organic and still has no taste, then really there is no point in spending the extra money.
