Organic produce in lower Westchester

Does anyone know of a good place to purchase organic produce in lower Westchester? The Village Natural Market in Bronxville has a bit, but often their offerings are quite sad (wilted and all), and a few of the small produce stands carry some stuff, but it's scattered.

Failing that, are there any grocery stores or markets with quality produce easily accessible from Metro North's Harlem line?

    How about Whole Foods in White Plains? Plenty of high quality organic produce there. It's on the Harlem line, although I'm not sure most people would want to walk there to and from the train.

      Yea, I should have mentioned — I've made that trek a few times, it's not bad other than navigating around The Westchester. I was really just wondering if there is a less obvious treasure I'm missing.

      Fresh N Natural in Scarsdale on Garth Road has some organic stuff. I used to frequent them a lot last year but my budget doesn't allow for that kinda grocery shopping anymore! They probably have a larger selection of organic produce now because last year they were trying to change more over to organic stuff.

        There is an extensive thread on this topic currently going on.

          Thanks, I'll check out Fresh N' Natural tomorrow, I was headed up to Scarsdale anyway.

          Oh, and I did see the other thread, but I was more asking about grocery stores and markets not farmers' market.

            Also check out the Mrs. Greens stores. There is one on Rte. 22 in Eastchester/Scarsdale, not sure where else in lower Westchester.
