Organic vegetables can seem much more expensive than conventionally grown vegetables, and yes, they do often look sad and tired, because they tend not to sell quickly.

Alternatively, buy from a shop with a regular turnover. Because it is not sprayed with fungicides, even organically grown produce deteriorates if it is left to sit around.
