Sorry to be so site specific but I hope someone on this list in Dallas can
help us out.
I keep my dad and step-sister informed about organic, local foods and buying
direct. Lisa emailed me the following. I'm trying to get her hooked up
with some local farmers in the Dallas area. I've looked on the USDA's site
for a farmers market and on SAN for a CSA and no luck. I suggested calling
health food stores for info about food buying clubs but I'd rather get her
some local contacts. Anyone know of local farmers in Dallas with veggies
and fruits I can refer her to, especially organic farmers?
As always, thanks for your help.

What is safe to eat? I try to buy organic when I can, but it is not easy to
find. Whole Foods is across town and they do not carry 100% organic anyway.
After our brief conversation in the grocery store last week, I don't know if
it is worth buying organic. Are the produce wash solutions any good? The
one I bought does seem to remove some of the waxy film, but is it a waste of
time too? As you know kids love berries and they seem to be one of the
worst foods for pesticides. Let me know your thoughts.
