Wal-Mart Doubles Organic Food Offerings

In a report at Reuters, Wal-Mart is aiming it sights on the organic market, and is planning on doubling the amount of organic foods available in it's stores over the next few weeks.

The report states that Wal-Mart's push will have the ripple effect of creating more demand, thus causing greater production of organic foods.

I hope this will be the case. More importantly, I hope that the produce will be grown locally, and not shipped, trucked, refrigerated and plastic wrapped.

I personally would still prefer the local farmers market or the local fruit & veg shop any day.
