Over recent years many people have been discovering the health benefits of an organic diet. Organic food is the way that nature intended it to be - grown and produced without the toxic pesticides, herbicides and growth hormones that are so common today.

While it was once difficult to source organically-grown produce here in Melbourne, these days many shops and markets purvey organic fruits and vegetables, as well as other products that have been produced organically.

Where can organic groceries be purchased in Melbourne? Which shops specialise in organic goods and what markets sell organically grown fruits and vegetables? Which are the most reputable and where are the best places for a bargain? Where do you recommend?

There are a number of places selling organic produce further out on the Mornington Peninsula and also out near the Yarra Ranges.
A great spot to buy organic groceries is the organic market and shop at Ceres Community Environment Park in East Brunswick (Corner Roberts and Stuart Street). On weekdays they're open from 9am till 4pm, and on weekends from 9am until 2pm. They're very reputable and passionate about organics...which is always an issue. Highly recommended!
The Victorian Farmers' Markets Association has a list of farmers' markets where the sellers are also the producers. While all the products are not necessarily organic, when you can talk to a person who was involved with growing and/or producing the food you can get a good idea of what you're buying (and eating).
