As you might expect, opinions on this issue differ among experts. Plants definitely do absorb all sorts of chemicals from the air (primarily carbon dioxide!), but the chemistry of the conduction channels within plant tissue acts as a filter, allowing in only some of the chemicals. This is why a tomato grown with manure compost on the soil doesn't taste like manure. A larger danger than pollutants being absorbed from the air into the tissue of the vegetable would seem to be the pollutants which settle on the outside of that vegetable: soot and grime in particular. Wash vegetables grown in the city thoroughly, and they should be about as safe as vegetables grown in the country. After all, there are chemical pollutants in the soils and air in the country as well. The benefits of eating the vegetables should far outweigh the risks from growing them in a polluted environment. Unless, of course, you live near Chernobyl.

If that's the only difference between the two, then no. For example, the reason most organically grown tomatoes taste better than those normally available in supermarkets is b…ecause the organic ones are raised much the same way you would in your garden. The standard fresh market tomatoes are grown using mass-production technology and are frequently picked green so that they will be ripe by the time they get shipped hundreds, if not thousands, of miles across the country. Properly applied, approved pesticides carefully used as part of Integrated Pest Management techniques have no effect on flavor or any other quality of the produce. Also keep in mind that there are organic pesticides as well as chemical ones.
