Default Can you list places where to get organic veggies/fruit and where not to?

I did some looking around but I still need some answers as to places where to get veggies that i can feed my birds and how do you clean them? Is it bad to get organic food from supermarkets for budgies? I've fed my birds fruit before but never veggies and I sadly do it occasionally because i'am worried about pesticides. OTL When it comes to people food I've fed them only bananas, apples, pine apple and hard boiled eggs before. Educate me as much as you can please. I really need it.

Where I live, almost all the supermarket's carry some organic's, some more than other's as far as choices. I use organic veggies, and I also buy organic egg's. I wash my veggies in the same bottled water that I use for my birds....

Oh. Thats good to know. I read somewhere where it suggested that using lemon mixed with something else to wash the fruit or veggie but i forgot where. Is washing it with water really enough? ^^And is using lemon to wash it really okay? I just want some of these questions answered before i see the avian vet. When i see her im going to ask many questions.

Your very wise to plan on asking question's to your vet. As a matter of fact, I would start writing down your question's to take with you, that way you wont be like me and leave, and remember you forgot to ask something...

I have just been using water myself, never heard of the lemon. I haven't had any problem's in the last couple year's...

Most supermarkets and grocery stores are offering organic alternatives these days. Just learned in one of my marketing classes that Walmart is introducing more organic fruits and veggies! Although, I do forget when or if it already has. I believe it has as I do happen to remember buying some organic salad mixes there.

About washing fruits and veggies, I have read that using white vinegar is best! Research has shown that a 3 part water to 1 part vinegar is most effective. Though perhaps lemon juice would work as well since its so acidic? Interesting.

I went to a supermarket and asked someone who worked there if they sold organic veggies and he said no. Guess I have to buy at the other supermarket that isn't closer to me. OTL
