Cocoa To Quinoa Pasta: Seven Organic Stores To Bookmark For All Your Household Needs

While it not always easy to make that trip to a local farmers’ market for fresh produce and groceries, gone are the days when organic goodies were way too expensive and hard to find. Scattered around the city are stores exclusively offering natural and organic products. And no, it’s not just veggies you’ll find here. With everything from shampoo to candy bars on offer, you might just tick off everything on your shopping list in a single store. LBB picks out seven stores in the city you can hit up for organic products.

LBB’s Loving 

Anemane Organics

Readers’ Vote 

Fresh Earth Organics

Vriksh

Run by sisters, Mamta, Manjula and Malini, Vriksh offers super foods, farm produce and even organic baby food. So, you will find nutrient-rich superfoods like wheatgrass powder, types of flours {look out for their stock of amaranth flour}, spices and millets. They bring in fresh fruits and vegetables once every week so, we suggest you head here every Friday {that’s when the produce comes in} for your weekly groceries. We love that they also have some basic organic cosmetics like lipstick and kajal.

Price: INR 30 upwards

Fresh Earth Organics

Started in 2007, the store has organic and natural goods ranging from veggies and groceries to special products like apple cider vinegar. Grown on their own farm {near the Karnataka border}, their juicy mangoes are quite popular and must make their way into your shopping list. Oh, and they have candy bars made with jowar and jaggery if you’re looking for a healthy sweet indulgence.

Price: INR 50 upwards

Nisarga Shoppe

Calling themselves ‘The Alternate Store’, Nisarga has healthy and organic food, and personal care products. Promoting a healthier lifestyle, most of what you see here is sourced from non-profit organisations, self-help groups and small-time farmers. From organic ghee and eggs to shampoos {try their Olive Neem Shampoo} and laundry powder, this store is a one-stop shop for all your household needs.

Price: INR 50 upwards {home delivery available in Whitefield}

Simply Organics

Offering organic staples for over 12 years now, Simply Organics deserves to be bookmarked. Apart from essentials like rice, millets {they stock 10 varieties, we hear}, fruits, vegetables, spices and flours, they have a range of health products like capsules and energy drinks, all from Organic India. But what you must look out for are their juices – pick from mango, mixed fruit, orange and guava versions.

Price: INR 50 upwards

Anemane Organics

Tucked into Jayanagar’s Shopping Complex, Anemane Organics is a pretty little store which is keeping it real with its natural line of products — from lipstick to coffee. We found shelves stocked with everything from gluten-free quinoa pasta to bags of chia seeds and neem powder. Refill your spice racks with cumin, mustard, sunflower seeds, cinnamon and cloves. From breakfast foods to a selection of teas from masala to oolong, the store even has a range of all natural cosmetics from brands like The Soul Tree, with lipsticks in deep red hues and kajal to beauty oils, from tea tree to lemon. Prices for their merch start at as low as INR 100.

Price: INR 100 upwards

The Organic World

Stocking up on everything from ethically sourced vegetables and grains to chemical-free body wash, The Organic World does wholesome and healthy with its all natural and sustainable range of products. The store is a one-stop shop for everything organic, so you will find apparel, decor, bath and body care, gardening tools and even toys for kids apart from your usual groceries. From fresh dragon fruit and avocados to unadulterated spices like turmeric, peppercorns and even flax seeds, you’ll be spoilt for choice here. And. did we mention that they have bamboo toothbrushes too? Go and check them out.

Price: INR 50 upwards

Petrichor

An online organic store, Petrichor home delivers fresh and healthy goodies to you at home. Operating in only a few parts of the city, this online grocery is run by farm owners so you can be sure that your produce is farm fresh and is sold at competitive prices. And it’s not just soona masoori, channa dal and rajma that you can buy here. Stock up on avocados, berries and even feta cheese here. And for your skin’s nourishment, pick up some body butter too. As of now, they deliver to most places in Central and South Bangalore, and in a few months, they’ll be delivering all over the city. Their delivery timings are super early in the morning and they just leave your goods at your doorstep for you to collect as soon as you wake up. 

Check out their website and shop their produce at their store here.
