Dan Sopko, Crete | "Yes. We spend our winters in Mexico. We're very apprehensive about our food. We buy from the super mercado, and they offer organic food."
Ann Jankowski, Valparaiso | "I have heard that some are better. But if you don't buy organic and you rinse and wash your produce, it's just as good."
