Russo's organic produce

I was at Russo's last week and noticed on the way out that they now have an organic section with excellent price points that are lower than the competition. The quality looked good, but I haven't tried the produce yet. What are others' experience?

  1. I got swiss chard and tuscan kale, thought they were very good. Was disappointed they didn't have organic berries or asparagus. The kale looked a bit wilted but revived with some cold water soaking.

    1. This is great news.....I'll have to check them out!

        when i was there, two weeks ago, I think, the organic produce was grouped together in the outside "pavilion" where the bushels of apples and root vegetables are congregated, before you go inside.

        Amount of produce in the organic section has expanded in the past couple of weeks. Amazingly, the prices of some of the organic stuff is no higher than the conventional versions inside the store.

        1. I've tried the dinosaur kale, Gala apples, sweet peppers and lettuce. All were up to the standard I expect from Russo's and I'm thrilled that they're carrying more organic! I'm so tempted to buy more than I need just to positively reinforce them!

          1. It's all been good, what I've purchased. And the prices are much lower than Shaw's & Whole Foods.
