Ecologically friendly food and beverages in Albisrieden, Zürich

I’ve noticed that ecologically friendly food and beverages are gaining popularity. Migros in Switzerland sells a number of sustainable labels that you can read about by clicking here. And at COOP, the turnover of, for example, Naturaplan products has grown considerably since 1993 when it was first introduced. You can virtually experience Naturaplan by clicking here.


Another shop which sells ecologically friendly products is claro fair trade. For example, I bought some really good biological Max Havelaar chocolate in a claro fair trade shop in Albisrieden, Zürich. As you can see on this photo from the shop, claro fair trade also has many other fine products.

Yesterday, a new shop selling biological food and beverages from local farmers opened here in Albisrieden, Zürich. The shop is called Bachser Märt. I received a nice invitation to the shop opening. And I was not the only local citizen to show up on this opening day. A large number of other people had decided to also stop by to have something to eat and/or drink and/or buy groceries. There was a good atmosphere there. I tried some really great, sweet apple juice and also tasted the roasted pig that the people working for Bachser Märt had prepared (see photos below) on a big grill. What made the experience really good was also the music that the group La Tsiganotschka played during the opening event.
