Organic Grocery:

In agriculture, this means that crops were grown without the use of chemical pesticides, artificial fertilizers or sewage sludge, and that they were processed without food additives (like chemical preservatives). Animals must be reared without the routine use of antibiotics and growth hormones and fed a diet of organic foods. In most countries, organic produce can not be genetically modified.

Organic Grocery Stores:

Historically, organic produce was almost exclusively available directly from small family-run farms or at community farmer’s markets. Lately, though, organic foods are becoming much more widely available; organic food sales in the United States have grown by 17 to 20 percent a year for the past few years, while sales of conventional food have grown more slowly, at about 2 to 3 percent a year.  This has created a number of companies who will deliver organic produce nationally.
