BEST BIO SHOPS & MARKETS IN BRUSSELS
As people in Brussels pay all the more attention to the quality and origin of their food, it’s no surprise that bio stores and markets keep popping up around the city. Being one of those people, I have made a conscious effort to buy most of my groceries from local organic shops and support slow food restaurants.
After sharing with you my favourite healthy lunch spots in Brussels, I thought it would be a good idea to put together the best bio shops and markets in town. I will be updating the list as I discover new spots, so watch this space!
This is one of the first local bio markets I discovered in Brussels and still enjoy the ritual of buying fresh fruits and vegetables on a Sunday. It gets a little busy but is well worth visit, especially since El Taco Mobil is preparing delicious tacos from time to time just a few meters away. > Read the full review here <
Right in the heart of Brussels, Farm is a foodie’s heaven. Spacious and well stocked with bio products, it’s very hard to leave empty-handed. That’s where I usually buy cheese and olive oil. Once you’re done, take a coffee break at De Markten or Via Via Travelers’ Cafe. > Read the full review here <
Both a bio shop and a restaurant serving living food, TAN is one of my all-time favourite foodie spots in Brussels. The shop is well stocked with all things organic, including cosmetics as well as a small section with meat, vegetables and cheese. All ingredients for the dishes of the restaurant come from this shop and are so delicious that I keep dreaming I’ll be able to recreate the flavours at home some day! > Read the full review here <
Located in a beautiful town house on Avenue Louise, Chyl is a sustainable shop, café and beauty corner that stays true to their motto: “Change your lifestyle and then cherish your life”. Ι really like the selection of nuts and legumes, the terrace and last but not least, their tapas platters. > Read the full review here <
This indoor bio market is a hidden gem in Schaerbeek. I love its industrial vibe and the fact that the vendors, who are also the producers, are happy to answer any questions you may have with a smile. Bonus points for the little cafe that serves great coffee and has free wifi. > Read the full review here <
Tucked away in a street close to the Midi station, this small bio canteen is a place where you can have a healthy meal but also shop. All ingredients used in the kitchen of Entre Nous are organic, seasonal and local, ranging from legumes and olive oil to eggs, honey and chocolate. > Read the full review here <
