    Depending on the store, anywhere from all to none.

    Unfortunately, very little research has been done on how much of the food specific retailers sell is organic. But it also depends on what store- obviously Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s is going to have more organic food than mainstream retailers. But here are some stats for you: In 2010, organic products accounted for 4% of total food and beverage sales, and 11.9% of all fruit and vegetable sales were organic. In 2010, mainstream retailers accounted for 54% of organic food sales, while specialty and natural stores accounted for 39%.

    Yes, it all depends on the store. If you are shopping at Whole Foods, a good deal of the foods are going to be organic. If you’re shopping at a Shaws or Stop & Shop, in all likelihood there will be fewer foods with a certified organic label, and those foods may be concentrated into a specialty aisle.
