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 five stores in the city you can hit up for organic products.

Fresh Earth Organics

Run by sisters, Mamta, Manjula and Malini, Vriksh offers super foods, farm produce and even organic baby food. So, you will find nutrient-rich super foods 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.
