I think it really depends on where you live and what you are paying. By shopping carefully and paying attention to price, I can usually get prices equal to regular grocery store conventional pricing. We buy a lot at the farmer's market and also animal shares but we live in LA-- it isn't like I am getting cheapo farm stand pricing.

I used to buy about 90%+ organics and now I really don't buy ANY, unless they are cheaper, which occasionally happens.
I don't recall how much exactly it saves me, but it's a good deal. I would love to one day go back to buying organic and local foods...but right now it's just not in the budget ($130/2 weeks for 2 adults, 1 5yo and a baby on the way).
I don't feel too guilty anymore though...honestly, i just hide my head in the sand and ignore the conventional nay-sayers...no reason to feel guilty about something i just cannot do financially right now.
That being said, I do feed my family very healthfully, despite it not being organic. We eat mostly vegan, whole foods, lots of fruit, hardly any processed junk, etc.
