I on the other hand, am surrounded by conservatives who are just barely aware that you dont have tom boil vegies for an hour with hog fat to consider them edible. There is a farmers market in Muscogee but only about 1/3 is really organic it supplies us well—that and the several friends we know that garden. There is more availeable meat wise—high quality organic grass fed beef is easy to find–and theirs is an Okla Food Coop that is connecting growers and consummers with monthly deliveries with all kinds of really good stuff including cheese. Albertsons has a greast selection of organic produce—but very pricey. The folks we known that work with the farmers market say that the organic market os growing steadily but slowly—mostly for the same reason that i like it—THEY TASTE BETTER!!! Comerrrical growers are just NOT going to produce heirloom tomatos—its just not easily done on such a large distribution system–besides–tomatos that can be picked green make fine catsup so they sell. So there will always be a place for smaller growers that cater to the resteraunt and organic folks.
