Walmart to Begin Selling Less Expensive Organic Food

    Organic food has always been pricey but one major retailer says it doesn't need to be that way.

    Starting this month, Walmart will team with health food brand Wild Oats. They say their organic food will be 25 percent cheaper than the competition’s.

    Walmart’s partnership with Wild Oats will bring 100 organic pantry items like rice, ketchup, pasta sauce, diced tomatoes, soup, chicken broth and spices to 2,000 of its stores across the country.

    The new Walmart on Georgia Avenue in northwest Washington sells just a few organic items at the moment, but that store is among 10 in the area that soon will offer a large selection.
