Farmer's market or grocery store. It is less expensive if you go to the farmer's market and buy bulk but when you can't get to a farmer's market, wash your fruit and vegetable with a vegetable wash to get the same effect as foods without pesticides.

Make yourself shop only at your local organic grocer
I only shop at Trader Joe's. Compared to chain store grocery stores, their products have been instrumental in helping me remove chemicals, pesticides, bio-engineered/modified, antibiotic enhanced, etc. foods from my diet. It's easy to only shop there and feel better... Just don't shop anywhere else!
I'm not associated with Trader Joe's in any way other than being a customer that feels healthier thanks to them!
Not only will a garden let you enjoy fresh vegetables without all those pesticides (not to mention they haven't made a 3000 mile trip to your table). You can also freeze and can to enjoy these wonderful veggies all year long! All that playing in the dirt is a great workout too!
