Global Organics Directory

Global Organic Produce Directory

I am often asked where I buy my organic produce and if I am travelling, that's also a question I would like to ask. So I decided a Global Organic Produce Directory would be a great little spot for anyone around the world to refer to if you are just looking for a place near your home or if you are travelling.

If you are an organic producer, supplier or have a favourite place to go to, please share in the comments or send me an email with the details and I will add it to the directory. I would love to hear from you!

Organic produce unfortunately is still more expensive than non organic, so sometimes it's not possible to buy everything organic. It helps to try and find a local wholesaler or going to your local farmers market if that's available. You can also decide what to buy organic by referring to the EWG's Dirty Dozen list for the 12 most contaminated items. I have summarised it below:

2016 Dirty Dozen - these produce items showed the most pesticide residue, so I try and purchase them organic or avoid them as much as possible:

  • Strawberries
  • Apples
  • Nectarines
  • Peaches
  • Celery
  • Grapes
  • Cherries
  • Spinach
  • Tomatoes
  • Bell Peppers
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Cucumbers
2016 Clean Fifteen - these produce items showed the least pesticide residue and are ok not to buy organic if you cannot find them or if they are too expensive:
  • Avocados
  • Sweet corn
  • Pineapples
  • Cabbage
  • Sweet peas
  • Onions
  • Asparagus
  • Mangoes
  • Papayas (choose non GMO)
  • Kiwis
  • Eggplant
  • Honey Dew
  • Grapefruit
  • Rockmelon (Cantaloupe)
  • Cauliflower

My favourite place to go to, a wide range of fresh produce as well as many staples for the pantry at very reasonable prices. My favourite is the discount veggie section at the back, I have found organic zuchini for 50c a kg, organic whole cauliflower for $2.50 and too many other bargains to mention

Wholesale only, buy by the carton. No browsing, just go on their email list and place your order for pickup the next day (week days only). This is where I get all my bulk buys. It pays to find a few friends to share a carton if you can!
