What are some good options to get Organic Fruits/vegetables and Milk? I looked at Whole Foods near South Park, but it is pricier, looking for other options.

Any suggestions.

Right now we do our purchases at Walmart and Costco, so compared to the regular, organic stuff is way pricier..so trying to find something reasonable.

Organic will always be more expensive. A gallon of milk is about $3.80 at HT. Organic milk at HT is about $6, last I noticed.

Is organic an absolute? I don't know.

I've noticed that Trader Joe's have some organic items that are cheaper than HT's non-organic. Unfortunately, milk isn't one of them.

Atherton Mill & Market has organic produce, dairy products & meat vendors. They are open at various times during the week, not just on Saturday mornings.

Harris Teeter - at least the one on East Blvd. - is carrying more and more organic items, and quite a few of those are more locally grown. I'd think the reopened store on Central would have plenty, also, but haven't gone there for fruits & veg yet.

The Matthews Farmer's Market has several organic farmers.

This would have been more useful with examples
TJ's organic bananas -TJ's $.29, HT Non-organic bananas $.33
TJ's organic Pink Lady apples - $.89, HT non-organic Pink Lady apples $1.25
TJ organic 1lb bag of carrots - $.89, HT non-organic 1 lb bag of carrots $.99
TJ organic hot house cucumbers - $2.29, HT non-organic hot house cucumbers $2.49
TJ organic bag of celery hearts - $2.29, HT non-org bag of celery hearts $3.49

What about Earth Fare? Don't they sell organic stuff?

and, the recent entry into our marketplace...Publix...?? Surely they sell organic stuff??

I don't buy organic because of the price. However, some people find that this is a "requirement" for their lives. I think that the OP was just asking where to find organic stuff...

I think we have covered the stores that carry organic, but price is so relative so that is where you will have to decide what fits best in your budget.

Earth Fare and Whole Foods have the best quality organic fruits and veggies.
You get what you pay for.
