Searching for Organic Produce in the Winter

Winter on Prince Edward Island is the pits. Aside from the fact that it's far too cold outside, it's near impossible to find a healthy variety of organic produce. This time of year the only produce available at the farmers' market in town is potatoes and carrots. I still go every weekend and buy whatever I can local but it's pretty much the potatoes and carrots. That leaves me relying on the grocery store all winter for the rest of my fruits and vegetables. Too bad the selection of organic produce is pitiful. I can usually count on bananas, apples, green onions, and celery. Once in a while there's a shipment of cauliflower (or broccoli if I'm really lucky).

Anyway, as you can see, it's very tough to eat all organic produce here in the wintertime. But, somehow, my wife and I manage to do it.

I've searched and searched online for a company that will deliver fresh, organic produce to Prince Edward Island. I can't find anything. I'd love your help. If you know of a company or come across one, please leave a comment on this post. I find myself craving zucchini, bell peppers, squash, and more.

Do any of you live somewhere in which finding organic produce proves to be difficult?
