    I buy my produce at a farmer's market, year round.  When I can't get fresh, I buy canned organic, which cost more anyway.

    But that's not the point.   For the tiny advantage I might get, I pay much more from the depression of wages that non-citizen workers bring with them.  And that tiny advantage pales in comparison to the profits that conservatives reap from having non-citizen labor.

    Did I really have to spell this out?

      that organic produce and produce from farmer's markets is not produced by any undocumented workers?

      illegals. It's that or go out of business. Do you have a house made in the past 20 years? Been to a restaurant? Eaten food? HIred a nanny, landscape company, grass cutter?
