Where can I buy organic food?

From a nutritional perspective what is organic food?

Organic food is food which has had little chemical intervention in the planting, growing, harvesting, and packaging, prior to consumption. It complies with the standards of organic farming practices and is the type of food our forefathers would have eaten. Nutritionally it does contain higher levels of nutrients, but more importantly the body’s ability to process the existing nutrients is easier than processing foods which have been sprayed with pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and the like.
Finding good quality organic food is easier than you think. Here is a list of places Claire recommends for organic groceries to make sure you are keeping your body as healthy as possible:

Share your organic shopping hot spots:

The organic food community in Australia is growing every year. Supporting local farmers, shop owners, and food producers is  important to the development of the industry, and beneficial to the supply and cost of organic food. It may seem expensive to buy organic, but these are the little guys that need our help now, so in the next 10-15 years the cost comes down and organic food becomes more available to you.
