I'm a new member of the Chowhound forum. I joined a couple of days ago and I need your help.
My wife is very ill and requires a completely "organic" diet.
We are not wealthy and I cannot afford to shop at Whole Foods.
I use Trader Joe's in Edgewater or the Shoprite supermarket in Palisades Park to buy fresh "organic" fruits and veggies, and I also find a limited selection of organic packaged and frozen foods in these stores.
My wife is only permitted to eat "red meat" once a week, and, I am having a helluva time finding organic "beef", "lamb" or "pork" anywhere.
"Coleman" organic frozen chicken and Trader Joe's organic hamburger meat is readily available.
Can anyone suggest any meat markets, fresh produce stores or food stores that are located reasonably close by to Edgewater and carry a decent selection of "ORGANIC" products?
I also travel once a week to RIDGEWOOD... so any food stores, fruit & vegetable markets or stores that have a large selection of organic "packaged" goods that are close to ROUTE 4 - between the Ridgewood exit and all the way down Route 4 to the George Washington Bridge would be fine.
I would be very grateful for any suggestions and recommendations.
