Search out the Bent N Dent grocery stores or salvage grocery stores. I've bought a whole grocery cart full of food, no meat, for $40 which included cosmetics, pantyhose, paper products and food.

Organic foods are found discounted. Dented/dated salvageable foods do not hurt anything. As long as it isn't open it is still good. We have a few here in Louisiana. Close to Baton Rouge.
I am looking to start my own discount organic/natural food store. Is it possible to get only organic/natural salvage items for a very low price? I am located in PA. Thank you for your time!

Bodfish is in the Kern River Valley area of California. Have you heard of Lake Isabella? It's there. About 1 hour NE of Bakersfield on HWY 178.
This isn't like your usual "dented can" store. In between the ordinary stuff (cereals, shampoo, canned stuff) are rare and unusual items (from time to time). I just got 4 2 lb. bottles of Ghee (clarified butter) for $1 each. When she has too much stock of an item, she usually marks it down further.
I got 1 lb. boxes of DeCecco Superfino Carnaroli rice for 20 cents each (vacuum packaged to last forever). Some items you'll see only once. Everyday: Salad dressing for 25 cents from the ordinary (Kraft, Bernstein's, Ken's, etc.) to the sublime (Maille, Layao's, Girard's, etc). No produce. No meat. Sometimes Manny has dog/cat food (sometimes not). I got Alessi White Balsamic Pear Infused Vinegar 3 for $1 (usually Manny had it marked 59 cents). It is $4.89 or so most retail locations.
Worth the trip to Bodfish. (04/13/2007)
