Where can we find inexpensive organic milk in Brooklyn or Manhattan?

My boyfriend and I recently switched from regular skim milk to soy, but it turns out he's allergic!

Is it possible to find half gallons of organic milk for $2.50 or less? Everywhere we go it seems to cost around $4.

BTW, we live in Prospect Heights but are willing to travel for the right deal.

  1. Good luck. I think Met Food on Vanderbilt may sell it for a little less. Milk, even organic milk, like every thing else that has any type of relationship with petroleum goes up when oil barrels does the same. And, if I'm right NYS may have a no compete law on the books meaning that milk may not be brought in from other states to compete.

      Thanks. I thought I heard something about milk being cheaper directly from the farmers, but I don't know if that was in New York State.

        I know you can get milk in the Mcarren Park farmer's market for cheaper than what they charge you in the store, but I don't think it's in the price range you are looking at - although I could be wrong.

    2. Fairway sells their own brand and I believe it is $2.99 for a 1/2 gallon.

        Yes. Trader Joe's -- and maybe Fairway too, I can't remember -- also sell a gallon in the $4-5 range.

      2. Not Skim but 1%. Costco sells 3 half gallons for $7

        1. Sometimes Key Food has a sale on Organic Valley or Horizon milk. I don't know if Ronnybrook Farms at GAP farmers market is organic---but it's the best milk I've ever had.

          1. I've found Organic milk to be usually $3.99 to $4.99 a half gallon. So far, Organic Valley is the brand I seek out until I find better. There are coupons galore to print in the two links provided.

            Organic Valley -->

            Horizon -->
